Treasury of Scripture Knowledge Nov 9, 2006
This book was recommended to me by a serious Bible student and I find that it is written for the in depth pursuit of topical subjects in detail. If you are a serious "in depth" student by all means add this to your library if not I doubt you would use it much.
just what i needed Mar 20, 2006

I use a computer program version. Found this to be a great source for studying the Word of God. I needed a backup
Like a center column reference on steroids! Nov 16, 2002
Think about your Bible. Now think about the center column references in the middle of each page. They are there to add clarity to the passages you are reading by referring you to other scriptures covering the same or a related topic.
However, only so much can "squeeze" into this narrow space--limiting the amount of references.
But what if there where a book that specialized, yea verily focused only on scripture references? You'd have a book like The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge.
It contains over 500,000 references! And since a basic hermeneutical principle is "scripture interprets scripture," this is one of the handiest volumes one could own.
In fact, it would not be an understatement to say that it is a one-volume library in and of itself. OK, maybe a little over the top, but it is a valuable tool that can and should be used in all study.
Also, there is an updated version available by Jerome Smith. If you can spare the extra cash, this updated version contains a lot of good commentary. I heartily recommend this volume.
Truly a treasure for the serious student of Scripture May 8, 2002
I have found this one book to be really helpful for my own personal study of the Holy Bible, on the premise that the best way for anyone to study the bible is to stick with using scripture to define scripture, far better than using commentaries and other "helps" for sure, great for advancing from the milk to the meat of the word because it keeps you right in the word itself. I had purchased it a few years ago and didn't realize how useful it can be, more so to me than my concordance. Now I find myself almost daily reaching for it to help me find related verses, words, phrases that lead to other verses, etc., all of which help bring home to me just how rich and wonderful my King James Bible really is and how one can never tire of searching the scriptures. I have enjoyed going from verse to verse so much, I lose track of time.
