By James Strong. An invaulable aid for Old and New Testament Studies and interfaith research, The New Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible is nothing short of exhaustive. Weighing in at nearly six pounds, this research tool is the revised edition of the legendary classic that generations have come to depend on for biblical research. Nothing has been omitted from the original text published in 1890, but new supplementary material such as "The Laws of the Bible," "Teaching and Illustrations of Christ," and a "Harmony of the Gospels" has been added and existing material has been updated and improved. The "Topical Index" references thousands of verses relating to over 8,000 biblical subjects, names, places, things, concepts, events, and doctrines. In this main section of the concordance, scripture references are placed between a context line and the reference to either the Hebrew or Greek dictionary, making it easier to access all the features of the concordance at once.
The most useful improvement is that variant spellings of proper names from modern versions have been cross-referenced. For instance, the person who uses the Revised Standard Version, the New International Version, or the New American Standard Version of the Bible can look up the modern word Abronah, which appears in these versions, and will be directed to Ebronah, the New King James spelling. A computer-generated typesetting, an obvious update from the first version, reads easily and provides design and format improvements. Any biblically based library would be incomplete without this indispensable edition. --Jill Heatherly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
