When it comes to the realm of biblical studies, students of the Bible are often overwhelmed, both with the sheer volume of information and with all of the unfamiliar terms, concepts, and topics. Like any other field of study, the serious study of the Bible has developed a specialized vocabulary. The key terms in this important field are defined in The Compact Dictionary of Biblical Studies. It provides clear, concise, and accurate definitions to help students of the Bible make sense of the specialized language of biblical studies.
This small handy book is the perfect pocket size book that contains a significant amount of words/ definitions and phrases about the Bible. Aside from Biblical terms, it also notes people, geographic locations and items that are relevant to Bible studies. I love that this book is written to help pastors, scholars and laypeople or even those of us who want to learn more. This is a great resource to keep handy, especially since it cover a wide variety of topics. This is just valuable tool to have in your library as you study the word of God because it will help you go deeper.
This little handy book is by no means an exhaustive dictionary, but rather a supplementary tool to your Bible or Bible studies and one you could even tuck in your Bible case. It is very handy with over 500 terms and topics. I have pulled it out a couple of times to look up places and terms. I highly recommend it, especially at $9.99. You can't go wrong for that price. i give this book 4.5/5 stars.
