Reviews - What do customers think about HarperCollins Bible Dictionary?

Invaluble Research Tool  Jan 24, 2007
I actually purchased this from a bookstore back in 1988-89, then it was priced at over $100! I got it at a discount because there was a flaw in the binding. I wanted a Bible study resource that went beyond the concordances that were available at the time. Compared to some of the other Bible dictionaries that I've used this one reads more like an encyclopedia. It combines archaeological, anthropologic, and ancient historical data to give one a completely unbiased account of Biblical related facts. Another cool thing is the magnificent pictures of ancient artifacts spread throughout. I don't possess another reference book that comes close. I'm thinking of purchasing another because I've used this one so much in the last 20 years that it's starting to fall apart. It's worth the money.
Harper Collins Bible Dictionary  Jan 12, 2007
The book was in great shape, packaged well, and sent and delivered timely to make it a great experience.
A real find  Nov 5, 2006
This book is very easy to use. I am a minister and it has helped me with writing sermons and just understanding the Bible better.
great dictionary  Jun 30, 2006
The articles are precise and concise and give reference to other subjects. As a seminary student, I find this an invaluable tool in paper preparation. The editors have done an admirable job in preparing a volume that covers an inexhaustbly deep subject in a fair and complete manner.
A Resource for Serious Bible Study  Mar 13, 2006
This dictionary offers the very best of biblical scholarship in an easy to use volume. It makes a wonderful companion to the Harper Collins Study Bible, but will enhance your study of any Bible. It is an excellent resource for academic and personal study, aimed at offering a variety of information from names, places, history, and more.
