A Holman Reference Book
Published by B&H Publishing Group
This Illustrated Bible Dictionary is an amazing book. When I opened this book, my very first impression was WOW! There are 750 Biblical words that are defined and 500 full color photos, illustrations, reconstructions and maps.
Most Impressive Features for our Family
One of my biggest pet peeves are Biblical pictures that are drawn as cartoons. I feel this confuses kids and gives the perception that Bible stories are not real. I was very, very impressed with the realistic illustrations in this book. They are absolutely beautiful and true to life.
The photography in this book is very well done. Each photograph shows exactly what word is being defined.
Maps and Reconstructions
There are many different maps included in this dictionary. An example is the map of Canaan which is included under the definition and explanation for Canaan. The Reconstructions are very well done. They truly give a glimpse of what a city might have looked like or what the inside of the Holy of Holies is like.
Throughout the book there are Illustrated charts. They show things like Insects of the Bible or Musical Instruments of the Bible in depth. These charts add to a person’s Biblical knowledge in a fun, creative way.

Our family found this Illustrated Bible Dictionary for Kids to be a fun, very well done resource. The age range on this book is 5-10, yet Sarah, who is 13, and even Matthew, who is 17, enjoyed this book as much as Ben (9) and Rebekah (7). The truth be told, I found myself reading this book after the kids went to bed. This is one resource book that I would highly recommend.
This book is available from LifeWay Christian Stores for $14.99 along with other books such as: Illustrated Study Bible for Kids and Holman Bible Concordance for Children.
