Book Review: Nelson’s Biblical Cyclopedic Index


Thomas Nelson’s Biblical Cyclopedic Index is a great resource for anyone who wants to learn more about the Bible. From its simplistic format to its rather extensive amount of information, you will find many positives in this $20 reference book. Unlike some Biblical reference books I have on my shelf, this book is smaller than a DVD case (it is much thicker, though).

The cover claims this is the “best Bible subject index ever” and it is difficult for me to argue with that. Nelson’s Biblical Cyclopedic Index contains more than 8,000 subjects (names, places, things, concepts, events, and doctrines). On top of this vast collection of subjects, with sub-headings and a limited number of references, you will find 300 word studies. Each word study gives you the Hebrew or Greek word, a good definition, several references and the Strong’s number for that word – so you can do further study if you want.

This little book is great for anyone wanting to learn more about the Bible; from teachers to students. Nelson’s Biblical Cyclopedic Index will make a great first purchase when you begin gathering resources for deeper Bible study.

My advice (rating) – buy more than one and give out copies (5 out of 5)
