Review: Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible

User Review  - Alesha -

This is a good resource. However, you may need to also have another dictionary available. I use the Nelson Biblical Imagery Dictionaries, which are very lay person friendly. No resource is all inclusive but it will make a great addition to your library Read full review
