4 Reasons Now’s the Time to Pick Up ISBE


During the June monthly sale, you can get great prices on more than 100 products. Of course, it can be hard to choose from so many useful resources. If you had to pick just one product from the sale, we’d recommend getting the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1979–1995).

Why choose this resource? Here are four reasons it belongs in your library.

  1. ISBE offers amazing scope, featuring an article on every name of a person or place mentioned in the Bible and all the terms in the Bible that have theological or ethical meaning. It also covers key biblical doctrines, interpretive questions, and more. Altogether, there are more than 9,000 topics and 3,500 cross-references.
  1. Each entry provides a maximum amount of information in compact form, including transliterations of Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek words; discussion of pronunciation, etymology, and variant renderings; consideration of biblical context; and more. You’ll get thorough discussion of major topics, and opposing viewpoints on controversial issues.
  1. With ISBE in Logos, you can easily search for any term, instead of looking through thousands of pages in print. Jump quickly to a Bible reference to understand the context, follow cross-references in a click, or take your study of a topic or passage deeper with other works in your library. Plus, ISBE’s extensive coverage will enhance your Factbook, Timeline, and other features.
  1. You’ll discover for yourself why ISBE won the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association’s Gold Medallion Award for Bible Study/Theology and the Gold Medallion Award for a Reference Work—and why so many Logos users have given it five stars. If you like reference works and want the best, ISBE is for you.

This offer is only available during June, so don’t miss your chance to get this invaluable resource for a great price. And don’t forget to check out all the other products on sale.


  1. To anyone who’s reading Paul’s post but doesn’t have a good Bible Dictionary, do yourself a favor and get ISBE.
