How do you get from Strong to Strongest? SWEAT EQUITY A long time ago, James Strong and his colleagues did the best they could. They invested many years of hard work developing a Bible study tool that tracked every word in the King James Bible, the bestselling translation of his day, and Strong utilized the best "technology" of his day: lead pencils and index cards. What he created was a monumental gift to biblical scholarship for the time in which he lived. However, the limitations of the human mind and the inaccuracies of scribbled words on index cards paved the way for many unintentional errors and omissions to enter his work-and unfortunately-they were never corrected. Until now. Until the "Strongest Strong's." SWEET TECHNOLOGY In 1978, two brilliant scholars did the best they could. John Kohlenberger III and the late Dr. Edward Goodrick invested many years in developing an index-an original and exclusive computer model-called the "Portland Index" that kept track of every word in English, Greek, and Hebrew-with greater accuracy than lead pencils and index cards! In the 1990s Kohlenberger and James A. Swanson used the "Portland Index" to correct and verify with computer-precise accuracy the thousands of inaccuracies in Strong's original work. The result? Old errors have been eliminated. Omissions have been filled in and tens of thousands of new items were added! So don't be fooled by other versions of Strong's that claim to be "new" or "best." Only Zondervan's Strongest Strong's offers superior levels of accuracy and reliability.
