Nelson's Biblical Cyclopedic Index Review

4/26/2011 Posted by Sheldon Clowdus , No comments
The concept for this book is really quite simple: provide the answer to the question "Where is that in the Bible?" for the words and ideas found in scripture.  You want to know where the Bible speaks about hypocrisy?  Nelson's Biblical Cyclopedic Index will tell you.  What about where Moses' brother Aaron is mentioned?  You can find every reference here.

This book is quite good at what it does.  It is a simple, straightforward reference book.  While it is probably true that most of the information found here can be rounded up on the vast informational landscape of the internet, this book eliminates a couple of the problems inherent in trying to find this type of information online.  The first is, of course, actually finding the place where the information is located.  The second is finding that information from a relative trustworthy source (and one that is content with just providing references without trying to push their particular point of view.)

All in all, I have been very pleased with Nelson's Biblical Cyclopedic Index and would definitely recommend it.
