Product Description

This set contains over 9,000 topics and 3,500 cross-references, including an article on every name of a person or place mentioned in the Bible. It also examines major Bible doctrines and gives opposing articles on controversial topics to ensure a rounded explanation and description. Hundreds of evangelical contributors from many fields of biblical research make this encyclopedia a well-rounded resource. The Dead Sea Scrolls, the Apocrypha and other extrabiblical resources are utilized and explained. This work is based on the Revised Standard Version, however the distinctive readings of the AV and the NEB are included usually as cross-references. ISBE is also an exegetical tool because it provides a brief discussion of problem texts under the English keywords and guides the exegete to more information that is found in other scholarly resources. Each entry provides a maximum amount of information in compact form, including pronunciation, etymology, and variant renderings. This is a must have for any biblical scholar.

    The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia is a wonderful Bible tool to have on hand. It helps to enhance my knowledge and understanding of God's Word through His Holy Bible. I have several Bible reference tools that I use, but I love my husband and my encyclopedia set. It's a great benefit to us in our Bible Study time. I truly believe the more I learn of God the better my relationship will be with Him. He's Worthy - i.e. the Lord is...

    I have provided two reviews for multi-volume sets - the ISBE and the "IVP Dictionary of" series. This review is very similar to my IVP Dictionary of one because I fee that both would be wise purchases and each have their own strengths and weaknesses.

    I got this set in seminary and it was very helpful in writing papers and doing research. I continue to use it in writing sermons and in other theological endeavors. There are numerous Bible dictionaries that exist - from the one volume starters to the multi-volume works like this one. If you are a student, a pastor or a lay-person who wants to know the Bible more and are looking for a very useful and inexpensive all-around set, this would be a wise purchase for your library.

    There are useful one-volume works and while they are helpful starts, these won't be as in-depth as something like this. My main problem with this set is the formatting - it could be a lot better. It's easier to lose your place in longer articles and harder to skip to the parts that you may want to focus on. But overall it's a great deal and like the IVP Dictionary of set, would make for a wonderful addition to your individual or church's library.

    As a Bible student, this is an excellent resource for exegesis work. Whether writing a paper or forming a sermon, I've found this encyclopedia set extremely helpful. I'm proud to have it in my library and look forward to using it throughout my career.
