Reviews - What do customers think about Nelson's Cross-Reference Guide to the Bible: Illuminating God's Word Verse-by-Verse?

An Easy to Use, Practical Tool for Bible Study!  Apr 28, 2010
This guide is a concise cross reference to words in the Bible. It is based on the Authorized Version, also known as the King James Version of the Bible, but will work with other translations as well.

It is laid out using the same order of books as found in the protestant Bible, meaning the Apocryphal books are omitted. There is no table of contents or index so the user must find their way as they would using the Bible. For those with some familiarity with the Bible that should not be a problem. For others there is a page called "Bible Book Abbreviations" which lists the books of the Bible in order of their appearance.

The writer includes some commentary on selected verses; for example in Genesis 6:2, the writer comments - "Sons of God" denotes wondrous, mighty, supernatural beings, frequently (but as here, perhaps not always: see Mt 22:30) used of angels in the O.T. This is an effort on the writer's part at balancing the sons of God as fallen angels versus the sons of God as the "godly line of Seth" interpretation.

The paper is thin, as some reviewers have pointed out, but very similar to the type of paper used in many editions of the Bible. The binding seems to be first class and should give many years of service. As is so often the case, this book was published in China.

If you are interested in serious Bible study, then this book can be a valuable work tool.
 
I simply can't think of a single volume resource better than this one!  Mar 12, 2010
Jerome Smith's latest reference tool is called "Nelson's Cross-Reference Guide to the Bible: Illuminating God's Word Verse-by-Verse". It's virtually half the thickness of the massive New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge which he released in 1992 and in my estimation, this volume is easier to use. The conventions used in this Cross Reference Guide are few and simple compared to the NTSK. They are as follows: 1) A "+" (plus) symbol marks where more verses on the theme are found, 2) References in Italic type show where the Bible quotes itself, 3) References in Italic bold mark prophecies and their fulfillment. There are several lesser conventions explained by the Guide that are easily understood and learned. Is the Nelson Cross-Reference Guide to the Bible an improvement over the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge by R.A. Torrey? I think so and most everybody commenting here might agree with me. If you're forced to downsize your group of study helps due to economics and/or shelf space, this tool alone could replace a variety of tools by itself. I'd never find myself without a copy.
 
Fantastic resource for serious Bible students  Jan 30, 2010
I love this resource from Jerome Smith. It goes through the Bible and gives cross references for almost every verse. Scripture comments on Scripture and it is a great reference when you want to study a particular phrase and how it is used elsewhere in the Bible. With some phrases he will put a + and that means if you go to the verse listed you will find much more explanation there. Sometimes with just one verse of Scripture you can get "lost" going from verse to correlating verse. I use this book almost everyday and am so glad I found it here on this site and read the great reviews. If you are looking for a book to help you in your times in the Word of God, I think you will love this. One thing though, the print is rather small, so make sure you have reading glasses if you have problems seeing small print.
 
Greatest Bible resource.  Dec 14, 2009
I first bought the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge in 1991 while a Marine in Okinawa at the Camp Kinser book store. It has been the most important bible study tool for me for many years. When I switched to Logos was glad to see it there. When I use Logos-I use this resource more than any other tool in Logos and am currently upgrading to their new Platinum 4 version.

Though I am buying this resource now(and have not actually delved into it) knowing Jerome Smith worked on this will see the same quality-hopefully better then the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge. Just hope Logos is able to provide for this resource as well.

I should mention in Bible Study Magazine, Dr. John MacArthur also states this is the resource he has used most and brought the most understanding. Glad to see someone finally agrees with me.

If you are wandering, never know when you will not have your computewr thus why I also buy book editions of what I might own in Logos.
 
Handmaiden of the Bible  Nov 4, 2009
First some acronyms TSK = Treasury of Scripture Knowledge NTSK = New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge CRGB = Nelson's Cross-Reference Guide to the Bible I cannot praise this book enough. It is truly a rare jewel surpassed in its value only by the Bile itself. In its simplicity, scope and completeness it is breath-taking. If the Bible is the Queen of books, then NTSK/CRGB is her only fit handmaiden. And for this precious gem we have Jerome H. Smith to thank. Of course, he built upon the work of others. But his was no quick slam-bam-thank-you-ma'am edit job. 30 years of Bible study went into NTSK. He compared verse with verse until he was satisfied that every reference was both relevant and significant. To the 500,000 refs of TSK he added 100,000 refs of his own. For CRGB he added still more refs mostly based on the alternative renderings provided by the KJV translators in the margins of their work. What's more, for NTSK he compiled no less than 7 indices: Subject, Topic Number, Prayer, Proverbs, Name, Figure of Speech and Strong's Numbers. He also provided an extensive bibliography. Leaving most of the notes he found in TSK unmodified, he added his own personal notes to about 275 vss. But the indices, bibliography and most of the notes were removed for CRGB. What a pity! For my part, the ultimate proof that God was pleased with the holy work of Jerome Smith is the fact that Satan tried to cut him down before he could finish his book. In Smith's own words from the preface of NTSK: "I almost did not live to finish my editorial work on the New Treasury, for I was shot in the head by an unknown assailant on March 13, 1986, when I had typed the text only as far as 1 Samuel 3. The Lord miraculously spared my life. During my recovery I kept working on the book, often without income." Smith has truly shown us what it means to live "a long obedience in the same direction."
