A good up-to-date Bible Encyclopedia

User Review  - RICHARD HOLT -

I have been very pleased with the ISBE - Revised. The old ISBE was also very helpful but in time it became dated. The revised version is current, reliable, and almost exhaustive in the topics it covers. I highly recommend it. Read full review
