A concordance it's not! Oct 9, 2002
This would be a good choice if you are seeking a compact dictionary. I made the mistake of thinking it would be a concordance. It's not. John
More Than Just A Concordance Feb 8, 2002
This book contains over 3,000 subject entries and 500,000 words. It is much more than just a concordance as its title suggests and is very useful in providing a better understanding of such biblical terms as Kingdom of God and Son of Man.
A Good Bargain Feb 8, 2002
This DICTIONARY-CONCORDANCE seems to be designed for the average lay person who is reading the NEW AMERICAN BIBLE which itself contains numerous footnotes explaining the more difficult verses of the Scriptures. Included in the DICTIONARY-CONCORDANCE are every name in the Bible, descriptions of biblical places, summaries of the books of the Bible and a time chart of Bible history. Modern principles of Scripture study in keeping with the documents of the second Vatican Council are reflected throughout the text. Overall I recommend the book as a useful tool for Bible study although the time chart is definitely a disappointment.
Not a concordance at all! Jan 5, 2000
This volume is a somewhat useful bible dictionary, but it is in no sense of the word a concordance. For example, the entry Know had a dubious exegis of the Hebrew word Yehta, along with the Roman Catholic Church's teaching on homosexuality. There was only ONE Old Testament citation for Know. If you need a serious concordance for Bible study, I suggest you obtain another translation such as the NRSV, for which there are considerably superior concordances available. Since the NAB translation of the NT was revised in 1986, the Psalter translation in 1990, and the OT due to be revised in 2003, I doubt there will be new concordance for the NAB published for quite a while. Even at the low price for this volume, I felt cheated.
