The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia: A-D
Geoffrey W. Bromiley
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, Jul 1, 1979 - Religion - 1006 pages
The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia combines the defining function of a dictionary with an encyclopedia's comprehensive presentation of accurate, dependable information. Summarizing the state of knowledge on more than 9,000 topics and including 3,500 cross-references, ISBE contain articles on every person and place mentioned in the Bible, every word in the Bible that has significant theological or ethical meaning, and all terminology that touches on the transmission and interpretation of the Bible.

ISBE Vol. 2User Review - Christianbook.com
The revised ISBE is moderate to traditional in it's world view, it is NOT conservative. Some of the articles from the old ISBE edited by James Orr, et al, are imported wholesale into this edition. While the research is excellent, the conclusions bear watching and cross-testing with more conservative sources. I have the set in my physical library, and am subscribed to it's e-edition under the LOGOS banner. There has been much in recent scholarship and research, and this edition of ISBE has captured those.
Great Dictionary Set - Formatting Could Be BetterUser Review - Christianbook.com
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.
