Respectfully, you need to read the description- it is more encyclopedic in nature, consisting of topography, "places and people", "illustrations, maps, and photos" and "5000 ARTICLES". [These are usually a compendium of many works from varied authors, so you'll likely have the use of several translations]. It would be more important to ask your question if it were a commentary. It seems well priced for what it purports to be. CBD will, I know, send you a return shipping label if you don't like it!

This dictionary gives a broad overview of different perspectives and interpretations of the doctrine of Creation, including perspectives on Evolution and the Age of the Earth. Rather than embracing a specific viewpoint, the article on Creation emphasizes both the initial creative work and subsequent sustaining/providential work of God in and for His creation regardless of actual means.

Question

Does this Bible dictionary contain doctrinal bias?

Is it fair to both views in the Calvinist/Arminian debate and in the cessationist/continuationist debate?
