By Geoffrey W. Bromiley, ed. / Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.

This work combines the defining function of a dictionary with an encyclopedia's presentation of more comprehensive information. It has over 9,000 topics and 3,500 cross-references. Every name of a person or place mentioned in the Bible has an entry which makes this a comprehensive and exhaustive work in that respect. It also exmaines major bible doctrines and gives opposing articles on controversial topics to ensure a rounded explanation and description. The Dead Sea Scrolls, the Apocrypha and other extra-biblical resources are utilized and explained. This work is based on the Revised Standard Version, however, the distinctive reading of the AV and the NEB are included usually as cross-references and thus makes a wide reader availability. ISBE is also an exegetical tool because it provides a brief discussion of problem texts under the English keywords, and guides the exegete to further information which is found in other scholarly resources. Over 275 photographs and drawings are in the first volume alone! Each entry provides a maximum amount of information in compact form, including pronunciation, etymology, and variant renderings. This is an amazing work at an even more amazing price, and will add to your library in an invaluable way.
