(I have 2nd Ed.) Of my whole library from seminary, THIS volume gets the most use of any reference book. It is a must have. You need to turn HERE before you turn to commentaries.

This is the best one-volume Bible dictionary available and the articles are often better than those in multi-volume sets. Thoroughly evangelical and excellent in scholarship. Highly recommended!

The best one volume Bible dictionary available. Minimal liberal presuppositions can be found, but it is the most evangelical of the plethora of Bible dictionaries available.
