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

This is an outstanding resource that reflects current scholarship but remains accessible to the lay user.
