Overview

The Dictionary of Bible Themes contains over 2,000 thematic articles with an explanation of the theme, key Bible references, and cross-references to related themes. Comparable to the venerable Nave’s Topical Bible in scope, the Dictionary of Bible Themes stands apart in its unique, nine-level classification of themes that brings related biblical and theological concepts together.

Now you can access entire fields of information, saving time and increasing your thoroughness. The entire Bible is referenced for a host of themes—doctrinal, ethical, historical, and cultural—grouped under nine key categories. Produced by the outstanding editorial team of Martin Manser, Alister McGrath, J.I. Packer, and Donald Wiseman, this book provides a superb tool for topical studies.

    Very useful resource for quickly finding out what the Bible says about a particular subject. Each topic has many subdivisions that aid in finding the verses you are looking for. Get it in a base package if you don't already have one; if you do, try it out if you haven't yet. It's a big help and time saver.

    This is an excellent resource. The Dictionary of Bible Themes is identical to the Thematic Section of my NIV Thematic Study Bible, published in 1996. I have found that researching themes has greatly focussed my material in Bible classes and also provided insights into the context and background of passages. Whilst I do not agree with every doctrinal presupposition of the editors' (in rare instances, admittedly) I heartily recommend the Dictionary of Bible Themes.
