Reviews - What do customers think about The Crossway Comprehensive Concordance of the Holy Bible, English Standard Version?
shortsighted Aug 31, 2008
this Esv concordance is useless, in long run, without greek/hebrew references, which is only reason i use one..otherwise dictionaries serve better..perhaps it was rush job..but in order for ESV to be The Bible, which would be good, follow up with helps has to be exhaustive..esp. if one wants to build commentary etc.. I'm thankful for work done but believe the above..
Best new translation I've seen in a long time! Jul 12, 2008
ESV knocks it out of the park! A must have for any serious Bible student. Great use of our modern english language. A must have for any one looking for a translation that will help them understand more closely what the original Koine Greek says.
Great start, needs Strong's numbers and Greek and Hebrew Jun 27, 2007
Great start for the new ESV. But, I was hoping with the excellent New Testament Reverse Interlinear that the whole package would be there. Unfortunately, its not. This is NOT an exhaustive concordance. You cannot reference anything to the original language or to Strong's numbers.
ESV cannot be a serious study bible without an exhaustive concordance.
Great for the times a computer is ineffective May 9, 2007
This product is complete and easy to use. There are times when a computer search just doesn't meet my needs. This product allows me to look up verses by content without fail.
Comprehensive standard concordance Jan 19, 2004
In this volume, Mounce offers a standard concordance of the English Standard Version of the Holy Bible. This includes a straight index of all words except the c. 100 most common ("a", "about", "after", "against", "all", "also", "am", "among", "an", "and", "are", etc.)
For every word occurence it includes the reference and immediate context. For example, the entries for 'Beholds' are: riddles, and he B the form of the Lord. Nm 12:8 has looked on it; man B it from afar. Jb 36:25
This does not include source language references. On the one hand, as a corcordance of an excellent translation -- hopefully soon the de facto English language standard as the KJV once was -- it is a useful reference book. On the other hand, I am not sure of the place a paper concordance has in an electronic world, especially since it does not add any new content such as source language: I find myself rather using the CD included with the version of the ESV Bible I bought.
