Also, you can find a review here from Friar Tuck's Fleeting Thoughts, and read a section of the Dictionary on Scribd.

“This new release from Zondervan is more than a re-packaging of the venerable Zondervan Pictorial Bible Dictionary (Merrill, 1963) or the New International Bible Dictionary (Douglas, 1999).  Nor is this merely a stripped down version of the recent five-volume revision of the Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible (ZEB).  This Dictionary gives a brief gloss for many items that the larger Encyclopedia provides support and additional documentation... 

1571 pages, this is a significant tool which will meet the needs of most laymen and most pastors.  It is an attractive and well-designed book and a worthy successor to the one-volume dictionaries edited by Douglas and Tenney... While it is impossible to call a book this size “handy,” it will likely be the first book off the shelf for most pastors and lay-teachers.”
