12,000 Religious Quotations, edited and compiled by Frank S. Mead
Reprinted 1989 by Baker Books, Paperback, 534 pages, Copyright © 1965 Judy D. Mead
"An indispensible reference work that puts expressive statements on religion at your fingertips."
"Nearly 12,000 quotes on 200 subjects from 2,500 different sources."
"Accurately indexed by topic and author."
Comments: A useful resource in that Mr. Mead has formulated an impressive anthology dedicated exclusively to the subject of religion. While not all quotations are Christian in either content or source, there yet exists a substantial storehouse of relevant, thought-provoking, inspirational Christian gems which will move the mind to reason, the heart to prayer, the soul to seek God, the hands to search Scripture, and the eyes heavenward in search of He who will return in glory.
Of particular delight are those individual Christian insights long held of great value by the faithful, yet, unfortunately, derived from works no longer in print, and, therefore, unavailable to all but a select few. It is sad that so much of inestimable worth is lost to us for no other reasons than neglect and apathy. We have, indeed, forfeited much of God, because we have cared so little for God. --(Dr. David J. Thomas)--

Unfortunately, we are of a different culture, a different time, and a different place. We are no longer an agrarian society. We are not well-versed in the regional geography, climate, history, languages, monetary system, political infrastructure, fashions, farming techniques, botany, wildlife, animal husbandry, or those countless idiosyncrasies that constitute an established society. As a result, our reaping of the harvest sown throughout the pages of the Holy Bible will, of necessity, leave much for the gleaners. It is not that we will be deprived of the essential truths, but that much will be lost along the periphery; much that would add greatly to our knowledge and enjoyment, and yield a better understanding of the people with whom our Lord conversed, ministered, taught, healed, wept, and died.
The New Bible Dictionary endeavors to cast light into these darkened rooms by sharing with the reader a better understanding of those nations comprising the Middle East. Bringing to bear the very latest archaeological findings and biblical scholarship, this volume is a virtual encyclopedia of biblical terminology, insights, doctrine, and scholarship. Yet, it employs a clear and concise approach that lays open to all the cobweb-covered doors with hinges long-rusted by centuries of silence. The way has been made clear; the doors long-closed—now ajar; the welcome mat beckons. Will you enter in? --(Dr. David J. Thomas)--
The New Nave's Topical Bible, by Orville J. Nave, revised and compiled by Edward Viening
Revised and Updated Edition published 1969 by Zondervan Publishing House. Hardcover. 1114 pages. Copyright © 1969 Zondervan Publishing House.
". . . the usual concordance of the Bible arranges the words of Scripture alphabetically so that the user may find a particular verse by referring to one or several of its principal words. The topical Bible, on the other hand, organizes the verses of Scripture under numerous topics, enabling the student to find the texts which relate to a given topic or theme even though the topic itself may not be among the words found in the text.
The New Nave's Topical Bible is designed to be the most helpful topical Bible ever published. Cross references are provided for ease in finding similar topics, synonyms, and various spellings. Chain references enable the student to follow a given subject through the entire Bible and major texts relating thereto are printed in full. A total of more than 100,000 Scripture texts and references are included under various topics. This book is truly a subject index to the entire Bible.
In addition to arranging the verses of Scripture topically, The New Nave's Topical Bible defines proper names, places, objects, and events, therefore performing the services of a Bible dictionary. The various uses of subjects in Scripture are also included . . . ."
Use the Nave's Topical Bible to:
* study what the Bible has to say about abortion, salvation, suicide, praise, and more than 6,000 other topics
* find Bible references on more than 20,000 subjects and sub-subjects
* find definitions of all persons, places, objects, and events in the Bible
* find information about archaeological discoveries
* develop sermon outlines
* prepare Sunday school lessons
* enhance devotional reading
Comments: It is not at all remarkable that we devote substantial personal resources toward the objective of becoming increasingly adept at and proficient in our chosen professions. It is not even remarkable that we, quite possibly, invest, yet more time, energy, and money in the pursuit of our favorite recreations. That which is, indeed, remarkable is that we dedicate so little time, thought, care, desire, and passion to our relationship with God; that we evince so very little concern for our immortal soul; that we yield such a minute amount of ourselves to one another in kind, caring, concern and humble service.
The Nave's Topical Bible is a reference tool of inestimable value in that someone so loved the Word of God that he willingly surrendered a not inconsiderable portion of his life in order to facilitate the efforts of those, his fellow men and women, who desired to know more of their God that they might prove obedient to His Word. To perform the painstaking labor of love necessary to, where possible, categorize each and every word of Scriptural text by topic and sub-topic would prove, to the vast majority of us either too tedious for serious consideration, or well beyond our ability to achieve a satisfactory result. In point of sad fact, the greatest number of professing Christians have yet to read the Holy Bible, much less endeavor to understand and apply the lifesaving lessons contained therein. It is, perhaps, this unfortunate reality that makes shine all the brighter the industry, diligence, and perseverance of Messrs. Orville J. Nave and Edward Viening as well as those nameless individuals who may have assisted them.
If you are seeking a resource whereby you may gain a deeper understanding of and insight into the Word of God, you will discover The Nave's Topical Bible to be just such a work. Regardless of the subject or topic under consideration, you will find that this volume will greatly facilitate your efforts in that virtually every Bible verse relating to a specific subject or topic has been localized by category. Whether an erudite theologian or a newcomer to the Word of God, you will judge, as do I, The Nave's Topical Bible to be an indispensable tool and irreplaceable ally in the unending search to better know and correctly understand the Word of God. --(Dr. David J. Thomas)--

"Because the Bible came into being in a different age, many readers have difficulty understanding its details. A Bible dictionary, defining and clarifying unfamiliar names, places, and objects is an indispensable tool for the Bible student.
Since its introduction in 1957, the Unger's Bible Dictionary has proved its value as an authoritative reference work. Prepared by Merrill F. Unger, Th.D., Ph.D., this volume has been a long-standing favorite among students of the Bible. Today, after years of exhaustive revisions and updates, The New Unger's Bible Dictionary offers up-to-date scholarship. Cross-referencing and bibliographies make this information easily accessible, no matter which Bible translation you choose. And special features including more than 300 photographs, 37 charts and tables, 50 maps, and nearly 200 illustrations will enhance your understanding." --(Book Jacket)--
|Comments: An indispensable and invaluable resource not only for the Biblical scholar and student, but also the entire body of Christendom. Aside from the obvious cultural, traditional, sociological, philosophical, and linguistic differences between ourselves and those ancient peoples, several millennia have passed since the books of the Bible were penned. As a result, and as part of the natural progression of mankind, much of what once was has been either lost or transplanted by the evolution of not only humankind, but the language of the peoples themselves. Merrill Unger is to be commended for this comprehensive work which makes plain those things which have long been clouded in obscurity and the sole domain of those conversant not only with the ancient texts, but the archaeological evidences of the cultures and peoples involved. In our estimation, a Christian library is incomplete without The New Unger's Bible Dictionary. --(Dr. David J. Thomas)--|
