Bible dictionaries usually attempt a detached, scholarly tone. Designed as a devotional, practical guide, this one seems more friendly. The devotional dimension is evident in articles on Bible characters, which include sections on "Learning from the person's Life." Among the practical features is "A Reading and Study Guide" for books of the Bible, which summarizes each chapter and suggests related articles. The main alphabetical listings are supplemented by two sections that list biblical people and places (some of which are treated in the main listings) and a set of maps. The book maintains a relatively high degree of accuracy, although in areas where there is critical disagreement it comes down consistently on the conservative side. It does not challenge standard Bible dictionaries, but will best serve laypersons in their devotional Bible reading; recommended for libraries that serve such readers.
