I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley for the purpose of review. The review is my honest opinion and I was not paid for this service.
Complete Guide To The Bible is an awesome resource companion for the Bible. It's kind of like an encyclopedia and dictionary rolled into one focused only on the Bible. I like how the author not only defines the word, but then gives you scripture from the Bible in reference to the word that he is defining. This book is filled with a vast amount of information. Although, I think the author allowed his opinion to come through on some of the terms which kind of distracts from the writing style of the rest of the book. But as with any resource, you need to refer back to the source (the Bible) for clarity.
I did think that this book was lacking in illustrations. There should have been more illustrations to help grab the reader's attention. At times, I found myself wandering away (losing interest) from the book as I read it.
But over all, I give it 3 stars out of a total of 5. I recommend the book to anyone who is interested in learning a little more about the Bible.
