With over 115,000 Bible references categorised according to the system developed for Roget's Thesaurus but adapted so as to best suit the specific content of the Bible, the Collins Thesaurus of the Bible enables the reader to dig deep into any chosen topic by idea or meaning - rather than needing to tie their search down to specific words, as in a concordance. Thus this substantial reference work is open to users of any Bible translation and offers the widest possible range of entries.
The product of 30 years of work on the part of its compiler, Colin Day, this revised book (previously published as Roget's Thesaurus of the Bible) contains almost three times as many entries as the previous edition, and hence offers an even richer experience. For study group leaders and individuals in their own Bible study, as well as for ministers and other church leaders - indeed for anyone who needs to know what the Bible says about a particular topic or issue, this book is a must.
'A remarkable aid to Bible study' - Dr J. I. PACKER
'A valuable innovation to help understand the meaning of the Bible' - REV. DAVID JACKMAN, 'Proclamation Trust'
A thoroughly revised and expanded edition of this reference work. Using Roget's classification system, this thesaurus provides insight into the close inter-relations of words in the Bible, giving instances not just of the exact word featured but of all possibilities within that word's meaning. The Collins Thesaurus of the Bible should be a useful reference tool for anyone wanting to engage with the Bible more deeply.
Similar to a Bible concordance, but with the references grouped using Roget's classification system on the basis of meaning rather than in alphabetical order, this thesaurus of the Bible is an invaluable aid to those who preach and study the Bible.
