TOS Review/ Lifeway Christian Stores - Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary for Kids

http://www.lifewaystores.com/lwstore/images/products_L/9780805495317_L.jpg?  

You probably have a Bible Dictionary, but do your children have one?

The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary is perfect for children. 

This Bible Dictionary is very colorful, has beautiful pictures, and is a pleasure to look through. 

It is full of maps, charts, and of course definitions. 





I will tell you that my children like to look through it just for fun, rather than for a reference. 
Now, they would also use it as a reference, but I just wanted you to know that your kids will probably read this as a book as well. They may like it that much. I find it interesting myself to just sit, and look through the book.

This beautiful hardback book has 750 essential Bible words, and 500 full color photos, illustrations, reconstructions, and maps. It is perfect for elementary, and middle school children.

Here are some of our favorite pages:









As you can see, it really is a wonderful addition to your home library. 

It is a Holman Bible Dictionary, so most of the verses are taken from the Holman Christian Standard Bible. They do incorporate some KJV words, which I do appreciate, but most of the Scripture notations are from the Holman Christian Standard Bible. 

Personally, even though I am not a fan of the Holman Bible, I still like this dictionary. 
I haven't read every single definition, but I think it is pretty neutral.I would recommend it even if you don't read the Holman Bible.

My 6 year old son really likes it. He loves being able to search through the book, and find scenes from the Bible that he knows. It also has his name in it, so he loves that!

I think that you, and your children will really like this Bible Dictionary.

If you would like to take a look at a sample of this book, you can find it here.

You can purchase the Illustrated Bible Dictionary for Kids at LifeWay Christian Stores for $14.99.


I think this book is priced very well, and I think that your children will really like this Bible Dictionary. Enjoy!
