The Zondervan Classic Reference Series brings together five renowned study aids at prices that put them within reach of all who want to get the most out of their Bible studies. You'll recognize the names instantly. Matthew Henry's Commentary. Nave's Topical Bible. Cruden's Complete Concordance. Jamieson, Fausset & Brown's Commentary on the Whole Bible. Zondervan's Pictorial Bible Dictionary. Millions of Christians depend on these beloved works today, as they have through the years, to help them better understand the Bible. ? Matthew Henry's Commentary--Rich insights into the very heart of Scripture characterize this celebrated commentary, condensed here into one convenient volume. Passage by passage, Matthew Henry offers prayerful, penetrating reflections to inspire and challenge the reader. ? Nave's Topical Bible--An indispensable tool for topical study, this volume provides more than 100,000 Scripture references--most with the complete Bible text--arranged under more than 6,000 topical headings. Billy Graham says of the Nave's Topical Bible, Outside of the Bible, this is the book I depend on more than any other. Certainly there has been no book that has helped me more in my study. ? Jamieson, Fausset & Brown's Commentary on the Whole Bible--Verse-by-verse exposition unlocks meaning through the entire Bible. I consult it continually, wrote Charles Spurgeon. The treasure store of Bible information par excellence, says Dr. Herbert Lockyer. ? Cruden's Complete Concordance--This most up-to-date, accurate edition of Alexander Cruden's venerable concordance contains over 220,000 references, allowing quick referencing of the entire Bible. ? Zondervan's Pictorial Bible Dictionary--Designed to provide quick access to information in both words and pictures, this study tool contains more than 5,000 entries and 700 images that embrace the complete spectrum of biblical concerns, from theological, to geographical, to historical and more.
I purchased this dictionary some years ago and it has been a constant companion to my bible. I take it everywhere I take my bible. I have compared the entries to other dictionaries and although it doesn't contain everything (what single volume can?) it does have certain references that are excluded by the others. For example, the term "ephod" I was unable to locate in any other dictionary but found it here not only with a definition but a picture as well. I enjoy just reading it by itself and have learned and clarified much. I highly recommend it as one of the best single volume pictorial dictionaries available to anyone seeking greater understanding of the Bible and the way things were.
