A MUST HAVE BOOK! Apr 28, 2008
This is a well made book, hardcover. this book will help you find anything in the bible your looking for. you can track all words in the bible with this. very thorough. very useful.
Well Done! Jan 21, 2008
This is my second copy of The Strong's Concordance I've purchased. Both copies appear to have a consistently good print quality. Although this book is excellent for finding the English words in the King James Bible to gain their meaning in Hebrew and Greek, it does not show you the various English words translated from each Hebrew or Greek word.
However, if you're only going to own one concordance, then this is the one to have!
Warning! Jan 14, 2008
The type that was used for this book is so tiny that it makes the book unusable.
Helpful, but within limits Dec 29, 2007
Strong's Concordance, like any concordance, is very helpful in finding verses or doing studies on how a particular English word is used in Scripture. It is based on the KJV.
But what makes this concordance unique is that it indicates the underlying Hebrew or Greek word for the English word. Every Hebrew or Greek word is also numbered. Other Hebrew and Greek reference works are available that are coded to these Strong's Concordance numbers. Also included in this Concordance is a short Hebrew and Greek lexicon. This enables the non-Hebrew or Non-Greek reader some access to the original languages.
But it should be noted, using such resources is NOT the same as actually learning Hebrew or Greek. And far too many people seem to think they know what a verse "really" means by looking up a word in this concordance, getting the number of the Hebrew or Greek word and checking the simple dictionary in the back. Far too many times, I have had people email me with some strange ideas derived in this manner.
The problem is, just looking up a word in a simple dictionary like the one included here is not what you would call an exhaustive word study. And to make matters worse, this dictionary was produced in the 1800s, but much about the Greek language has been discovered since then. So the definitions are not always reliable.
Moreover, once you actually learn Hebrew and Greek and work with the original language texts, you will realize there is much more to the meaning of a word than can be expressed in a simple dictionary. The various shades of meaning can only be discovered by the use of more exhaustive lexicons that discuss how the word is used throughout Scripture and in extra-biblical literature.
It was such much more exhaustive resources that I utilized in working on my Analytical-Literal Translation of the New Testament: Third Edition (ALT). I never bothered referring to a simple and less than reliable resource like this dictionary.
That said, this concordance does have value. Use it as an introduction to working with the original languages. But remember it is just that, an introduction. Don't think you are somehow studying the Hebrew or Greek because you can use a number to look up Hebrew or Greek word in a simple dictionary.
Also, if you use a version other than the KJV, it is helpful to also have a concordance based on that version. That is why I came out with a Complete Concordance to the Analytical-Literal Translation: Second Edition for users of my version.
GRRRRREAT! Aug 11, 2007
If you need a biblical word and reference and "map to the Bible" here it is! It should be the most "worn out" book in a christian's library.
