My copy of The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge arrived yesterday afternoon.
I was surprised and impressed by the size of the book!
I had to adjust the books on the shelf nearest to where I do my reading to accommodate this large volume.
I plan to begin using it myself this evening.
Now more Bible readers need to read the back cover text and take steps to dig into God’s Word to promote and facilitate spiritual growth!
From the back cover:
An exhaustive cross-referencing tool for interpreting Scripture with Scripture
The Bible is its own best commentary. To truly understand what the Bible teaches about a subject, we must consult all of what the Bible itself says about it. The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge allows you to do just that.
Unlike a concordance, which is an alphabetical index to the words of the Bible, the cross-references given in The New Treasury are not merely to the same word, but to the same or related thoughts, themes, doctrines, subjects, concepts, figures of speech, or literary motifs, even those expressed in entirely different words.
- Indicates degree of clarity, significance, or relationship between references
- Can be used with any translation of the Bible
- Arranged like a Bible for ease of use
- Provides a far more complete selection of cross-references than any other source
- Contains special study aids to help develop powerful lessons or sermons–straight from the Bible
- Includes multiple indexes (subjects, figures of speech, etc.)
- Uses Strong’s numbering system
- Uses a new font that makes it easier to read than previous editions
No combination of other Bible-study tools quite duplicates the content in The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge. When used effectively, this invaluable resource will change your life.
“The one book, aside from the Bible itself, that I value most in my studies.”–John MacArthur
“A boundless resource for study and lesson/sermon preparation.”–Jack W. Hayford
