The quality of the articles I have used from the LBD are very good. In addition the links between the LBD and other resources are helpful. IMHO this is a great resource and especially good for students given the price and breadth of coverage. I have found it to be a good introduction to various topics - providing background, summary of scholarship and some appraisal of the scholarship. In addition there are handy bibliographies which are linked to other logos resources. I also have made extensive use of other reference resources such as the IVP reference bundle and various others - this one is as good in its quality. Obviously the IVP bundle has a wider scope. For the price it is quite a gift - especially if you qualify for a student discount and get it free!
