Watson's Biblical and Theological Dictionary is an excellent tool. Topics that I have read appear to be purely explanatory and not written with any particular theological bias or prejudice. If you are one who according to Philippians 2:12 are constantly reaching out for understanding and the Truth as the athlete runs to win and stretches to the finish line, endeavoring to be qualified for the Prize of the calling on High in Jesus Christ, to attain to the earlier resurrection of Philippians 3:11 which probably is the same (Lat-idem) as the first resurrection of Rev. 20:5-6. This then is a tool for you. Be blessed.
