Bible dictionaries are enormously helpful (especially in Logos!), and having access to multiple types is useful for comparing definitions, studying context, and making sure you have the most accurate information. If you start adding up how much it would cost to pick up several print editions, though, you might decide that multiple types of dictionaries aren’t worth it. Luckily, with Logos—especially with Pre-Pub and Community Pricing—you can get Bible dictionaries for a fraction of the price, in a far more valuable format.
