New Strong's Expanded Exhaustive Concordance (Hardcover)
By James Strong
Strong’s concordance has always been a classic. Yet criticisms fell upon the Greek and Hebrew dictionaries within this book – many readers were not satisfied with the venue of its definitions.
But now Strong’s has expanded – drawing from the insights of Vine’s dictionary. Definitions are more accurate with this added information and give clarification for the words found in the Bible!
This enormous resource now holds more than 400 pages covering over 5,000 entries in Hebrew and Greek dictionaries. It has been enhanced by word studies adapted from Vine’s, Thayer’s, Brown-Driver-Briggs’ and other major reference works. It is cross-referenced to other leading word-study dictionaries.
Also includes charts of: laws of the Bible; teachings and illustrations of Christ; the Jewish calendar; Jewish feasts, monies and weights; NT monies; measures of length; dry measures; liquid measures; OT chronology; harmony of the gospels; prophecies of the Messiah fulfilled in Jesus Christ; the parables of Jesus; the miracles of Jesus; and the prayers of the Bible.
What makes this edition so unique?
•The only resource to incorporate the best of Vine's
•Words of Christ highlighted in red, and enhanced word studies drawn from standard dictionaries such as Vine’s, Thayer’s, Brown-Driver-Briggs
•Definitions of Hebrew and Greek primary roots greatly expanded – three times as much as before
•Frequency word counts for all English words in concordance proper and Hebrew and Greek words in the dictionaries
•Main concordance, with Strong’s numbering system, fully retained Fan-Tab™ Thumb-Index Reference System
About the Author
Dr. James Strong (1822-1894) was formerly president of Troy University and professor of exegetical theology at Drew Theological Seminary. His best known work is Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, first published in 1890, of which new editions are still in print.
For the concordance, Strong numbered every Hebrew or Greek root word which was found, for ease of reference. This numbering system (8674 Hebrew roots and 5523 Greek roots) is now used in works by many other writers and is widely available on the Web, where it is used in conjunction with Wigram's Englishman's Concordances and Thayer's Lexicon. Some criticize the use of Strong's concordance today due to the fact that he was never fluent in either Greek or Hebrew.
Another major contribution was to the "Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature." Some of his lesser works are "A New Harmony and Exposition of the Gospels" (1852); "Scripture History Delineated from the Biblical Records and All Other Accessible Sources" (1878); and "The Tabernacle of Israel in the Desert" (1888).
