    A Valuable Reference

    I have profited from the use of this dictionary. It is interesting enough to browse the topics, although it is designed for one to look up entries like a normal dictionary. The articles are generally short, but they provide a good start or quick answers. Further research would often be appropriate. There are many, many pictures, mostly black and white photos. Naturally, some are more useful and exciting than others. One detects some difference of opinion among the authors of the various articles. This is healthy and requires the reader to weigh what is here.

    As a Catholic reader, I was disappointed with some anti-Catholic polemics in a couple places. I would have been more happy with less ranting and a more scholarly presentation of the Protestant position. I have noticed this problem in only a couple places.

    A resource like this would be useful to any reader of the Bible, and this one is well done.
