Reviewed by (hal nonyurbiz, Norman, OK, US) - Another plus from the Nelson bundle. Commentary, Dictionary, Maps and Charts and Manners and Customs - four volumes. Good, useful info in all, though maps (and esp. charts) are usually challenging on e-Sword for me, because my vision isn't exactly sharp, and some of the maps&charts zoom better (more legibly) than others. Caveats aside, there's not a lot I have trouble seeing them so still very useful aid for personal bible study.
e-Sword itself is such a blessing! Best way to study the bible, imo. My wife asked me a biblical question that I was able to answer within two minutes - and this was no simple question or answer. When I realized that within those two minutes, I had examined eight or nine different bibles/reference sources it hit me how spoiled I was getting by e-Sword, and a bit more adept at using it.
I really love the e-Sword Editor, too. Topics and Study. Have yet to decide how to use journal, but have several options in mind - I will be using it.
Reviewed by (hal nonyurbiz, Norman, OK, US) - The NNIBD bundle has added much to my bible study, even though I've only yet scratched the surface of each of the helps included. Great for the bible student, a good balance of scholarship and readability for the laity, and some clergy, too, imo.

I live in China where the availability of products for one to study the word of God is VERY limited, as always I find the sources for e-sword to be of the greatest importance.

A Mature, Deeply Insightful, Concise and Dependable Resource
Reviewed by (Anthony Grubb, Max Meadows, Virginia, US) - I first encountered Nelson's Illustrated Bible Dictionary as a bible college student working in a summer sales internship for Nelson's Varsity division in 1992. We sold educational books and Nelson's "New Open Bible," but I was given an order sheet and on a complete whim ordered a copy of their Bible dictionary to look over, rationalizing my use of my credit account that I would sell it to a customer in my door-to-door sales. I'd seen plenty of other Bible dictionaries in my previous four years at two Bible colleges, but had never seen this one in the libraries of either of my alma maters. However, as I continued to refer to it, I became convinced that if I ever did wind up selling it, I'd buy another copy...sounds like a young man's good intentions, right? Luckily, I never sold it, and so took it with me into my final year, through graduation, and beyond--and so I was blessed to use it over the next two decades on many lessons and for occasional sermon preparation. While I commonly checked out other resources, time and again, it was this dictionary that "rang true" and made it to my listener's ears--and hopefully into their hearts, as it did mine! Two decades later, I was able to pick up the "New" and revised version on software, which accomplished two things: First, it freed me to quickly insert the most trustworthy, solid, mature, and reliable bible dictionary text I've ever encountered quickly into my work with simple copy & paste--I'm a good typist, but the awkward and tedious transcription process is often fraught with errors--especially when deskspace is limited and bookholders for dictionaries are hard to find! Secondly, it allowed me to pass my cherished hardcopy to a friend and brother who already owned "The Nelson Study Bible" (which I also recommend) and felt the same affection for their mature Christian scholarship as I. If you can only afford one good Bible dictionary, this is the one I recommend. If you can afford a second or third, you'll probably do the same thing I do, and after referring to the others, find again and again that Nelson's Bible dictionary gets you there quicker and gives you more dependable insight to bless others with.

5 Star Content Downgraded For Quality
Reviewed by (David Piontek, San Diego, CA, US) - Was excited when this excellent resource became available with illustrations, thanks to the image rendering feature added with e-Sword v10 - thank you Rick and module developer! The module is actually two files, a dctx file for the word indexed dictionary as one would expect, and also a mapx file, where 9 maps can be viewed separately in the graphics viewer. This is an optimum design which I like very much, allowing a map to be referenced while studying the dictionary or other resources at the same time. However, I have discovered some quality problems in the module, that are particularly unexpected and disappointing to find in a premium module which has been purchased. Firstly, in looking through to see how images are displayed in the dictionary, since only selected word definitions include images, I came across an image obviously indexed incorrectly. Under the word "Abronah" there is an image referring to Absalom's Tomb, which has nothing to do with that word, but should instead be under one of the following two words, "Absalom" or "Absaloms's Monument". I wonder if there are other instances like that. Secondly, in viewing the map images, low resolution makes it difficult to read text labels like names of places, especially if zoomed beyond 100%. If these deficiencies are corrected in a future update, this module would instantly increase to a 5 Star rating from me.

If you ever submit to us the "New Treasury of Bible Knowledge" - I would certainly have that as well, but in the meantime... I'm sure enjoying your hard work in making the Bible more meaninful to us all!
