Bible Study Reference Books

Here are some basic study tools you can get to "go deeper." It's important to find the right tools, those that closely match your level of expertise. I have tried to categorize the Bible dictionaries for you so that you will better know what you are getting. You can also generally tell by the price: the cheaper it is, the more elementary and the more pricey, the more advanced. I have added notes here and there to help you along in your decision-making process. All such notes will be in this same, navy-blue color and in bold. —Steve

Greek - Concordance to the Septuagint Versions of the O.T. (including the Apocryphal Books) By Edwin Hatch / Baker

21413: Concordance to the Septuagint Versions of the O.T. (including the Apocryphal Books)This indispensable tool for biblical scholars is new and improved. This classic reference is designed to be a complete concordance to the Septuagint version of the Old Testament, to the Greek text of the apocrypha books, and to the remains of the other versions that formed part of Origen's Hexapla. The objective aims at in the quotations for each word, as far as possible, to have enough of the context to show the grammatical construction of the word and the words with which it is ordinarily associated. Since the contexts are in Greek only, you must be able to read Greek to use this concordance. New features of this concordance include: the addition of a Hebrew/Aramaic Index to the Septuagint by Takamitsu Muraoka. This index identifies the various Greek words used to translate each Hebrew or Aramaic word, a new introductory essay by Robert A. Kraft and Emmanuel Tov that addresses the history and abiding value of the concordance while also providing suggestions for its use, and the additions and corrections, originally appearing in three separate locations, have been brought together and identified in the text of the concordance with symbols that alert the user to consult the list. Also, a comprehensive list of abbreviations used throughout the concordance has been compiled as an aid to the user.

    Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, 10 Volumes
    Edited by G. Kittel, translated by G.W. Bromiley / Eerdmans Publishing Co.

    2324: Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, 10 VolumesTDNT is an authorized and unabridged translation of Theologisches Worterbuch zum Neuen Testament. This work was first published in the German edition in 1933. It is designed for the use of intermediate and advanced Greek student. Each significant Greek word of the New Testament is generally presented in its secular Greek background; its role in the Old Testament (both in the Hebrew and the Septuagint); its use by Philo, Josephus, the rabbinical literature; its uses in the New Testament, which are sometimes classified according to synoptic, Johannine, Petrine and Pauline usage; and sometimes the Apostolic Fathers are included as well.

    More than 100 scholars contributed to the work, including specialists in Old Testament, Septuagint, Hellenistic, Semitic and Rabbinic studies. Substantial bibliographies and extensive footnotes supplement the articles. Volume 10 is an index volume to the entire series, compiled by Ronald Pitkin.

    Note to our International Customers: Due to the weight of the Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, 10 Volumes, an additional $50.00 shipping charge will be added to an International order for each occurrence of the Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, 10 Volumes in your bookbag. These additional charges will be automatically added to the Order Summary Page.

    This is the standard tool for in-depth understanding of the terms and concepts contained within the New Testament. I have used this resource constantly and have never been disappointed. Articles on some of the major terms (like "God," "Christ," "faith," "love," etc.) can run as long as 50 pages or more.

    Everything is listed according to the Greek word involved, and TDNT regularly includes an extensive discussion of the corresponding Hebrew word or words. The index makes it much easier for someone who doesn't know the original languages to use this rich resource, because you can look up the English word to find the corresponding Greek one. It also features a scripture index, indicating the major discussions by placing pages numbers in bold.

    Sell your TV and buy this if you want to "go deeper." —Steve

    Atlas of Christianity

    41303X: Historical Atlas of Christianity

    Historical Atlas of Christianity
    By Franklin H. Littell / Continuum

    Atlases that represent the first 1500 years of Christianity, for the most part, safely rely on ethnic and national boundaries to provide the basic context for the maps and drawings that illustrate change. Yet, as one approaches the modern period, when the creedal preferences of rulers and governments become decreasingly determinative, the geographical portrayal of religion becomes more problematic. In our era this becomes more pronounced. How does one graphically portray 'Lutheran' Sweden or 'Catholic' Spain when only 3.6 percent or 15 percent respectively, of the population is actually practicing. Which is the best way to represent the life of Christians in China, Indonesia, or the Sudan? Franklin Littell's method is to highlight those times and places of crisis and decision - both internal and external - in which the shape and direction of Christianity was determined. Particular attention is paid to the interaction of Christians and Jews and to encounters between Christianity and Islam. Three main areas are emphasized: theology and dogma, ethical and moral life; and the expansion of Christianity to a world religion.

    Atlas of Ancient Greece

    513353: The Penguin Historical Atlas of Ancient Greece

    The Penguin Historical Atlas of Ancient Greece
    By Robert Morkot / Penguin Putnam Inc.

    The cradle of western civilization, Ancient Greece was a land of contradictions and conflict. Intensely quarrelsome and competitive, the Greek city-states consistently proved unwilling and unable to unite. Yet, in spite of or even because of this internal discord, no ancient civilization proved so dynamic or productive. The Greeks not only colonized the Mediterranean and Black Sea areas but set standards of figurative art which endured for nearly 2500 years. Charting topics as diverse as Minoan civilization, The Persian Wars, the Athenian Golden Age and the conquests of Alexander the Great, The Penguin Historical Atlas of Ancient Greece traces the development of this creative and restless people and assesses their impact not only on the ancient world but also on our own attitudes and environment.
