Book Review and Giveaway

GiveawayOver the past few weeks, I have been thumbing through InterVarsity Press’s most recent “Black Dictionary.” For what it is worth, I am impressed! Not only is this a very attractive dictionary (jacketed, cloth bound hardcovers, a crisp font and clear page format), but it is also chock-full of the technical data a researcher requires.
