Publishers Description When you want to get a firm understanding of God's grace, where do you start? You could consult your concordance for every appearance of 'grace' in the Bible. But what about those Scripture passages that don't use the word grace, yet are vital to understanding it? Reach for the NIV Compact Nave's Topical Bible. It broadens your scope beyond word-searches to topical studies. Now you're ready to deal not just with key words, but with concepts. Based on the award-winning Zondervan NIV Nave's Topical Bible, this compact edition omits biblical text while retaining virtually all of its topical muscle. All the entries are here, all the reference, all the definitions and notes. And like its full-sized counterpart, the NIV Compact Nave's Topical Bible improves on the original, King James Version-based Nave's Topical Bible by adding more than 500 headings, 2,000 subtopics, and 1,300 cross-references. You'll find entries addressing contemporary issues such as abuse, ecology, homosexuality, and abortion -- all keyed to the best-selling New International Version, and easily usable with translations as well. So when you're ready to dig deeper into the Scriptures, it's time to add this book to your library. Its thoroughness will bring new dimensions to your Bible studies, and its portable size makes it easy to use any time, anywhere. Keep the whole set within reach on your desktop. Grab a volume or two volumes and take them with you anywhere. Each NIV Compact book packs a lot of information in a small package — one that fits where other books won’t and travels light when larger volumes tip the scales. And the price is as compact as the size — but don’t let the modest cost fool you. There’s a lot of knowledge here, condensed to provide the most salient information in an efficient format. For a hand-sized reference library that does more than scratch the surface, this 4-volume series is the route to take: big on insight, small in size, and easy on the pocketbook.

Reviews - What do customers think about NIV Compact Nave's Topical Bible?
Nave's for the 21st Century May 1, 2002
I'm no fan of the NIV translation, but the "NIV" in the title of this topical bible seems to have more to do with marketing than anything else. Basically, this is Naves Topical Bible with a number of improvements: (1) no bible text--saves lots of space and allows you to use your favorite translation which you have already; (2) an extended set of topics matching the wording of modern translations (e.g., homosexual); (3) retention of the older KJV terms (e.g., dispensation, fornication); (4) cross references of archaic topics to their modern equivalents (e.g., "fleshhook - see meat forks"); (5)the further categorization of Nave's original topic entries into 2000 additional subtopics; (6) 500 new topical headings; (7) 1300 new cross-references to biblical passages from various topics; (8) outlines of each bible book; (9) a basic OT and NT chronology; (10) each topic includes a list of Goodrick-Kohlenberger (G/K) numbers for the various Hebrew and Greek words which the topic stands for--allowing word studies--and a G/K to Strongs number conversion chart appears as an appendix. Many of the entries are so thorough as to be similar to those in a small bible dictionary.
If I had to recommend only 4 books prior to being stranded on a desert island, this book would be among them: (1) a bible; (2) an exhaustive concordance; (3) an extensive bible passage cross-reference (New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge); (4) THIS TOPICAL REFERENCE.
The number of cumulative man-hours in this work is immense. It won't get the sales of the flash-in-the-pan fad books taking Christianity by storm nowadays, but it the price/value ratio on this little book is extremely high for those who spend time in God's Word as their primary source.
