I have wanted the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia for a long time, but it is just something that I kept putting on the back burner.  I noticed that it is included in the Factbook Collection (22 vols.), which with dynamic pricing ended up being less than half the cost of the ISBE alone.  I just thought this might be a good find for some of you, as it seems that many of the other books are in base packages, so it is likely that many own them.

Nice, but I already own the older version.  Don't they say the older version is better?

I don't know.  I looked on Amazon and both versions have high positive reviews.  I know that it is usually brought up in the same conversations as the IVP black dictionaries and the Anchor Bible dictionaries.

Maybe.  Maybe not.  But Logos plethora of Bible dictionary links seem to favor the new, perhaps excluding the old entirely.  Already it is 20 years old.  I wonder when the revised version comes out?  And what will happen to all those links?

How many other resources were you able to pick up "new"? My "dynamic price" is less than half off of the ISBE. I may have to wade through the list to figure out what I would get.

I also got The Books of the Bible Made Easy and Theology of the Old Testament, including the study guide for $51.90, so I guess I had the rest.

Gulp. I picked it up too. Here is what I added:

  • International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
  • Tyndale Concise Bible Commentary
  • The Outline Bible
  • Theology of the Old Testament: Testimony, Dispute, Advocacy
  • Willmington’s Bible Handbook (doesn’t appear to be sold separately).

I noticed that a couple other resources also don't appear to be sold individually... but I already owned them.

I'm with you.  I couldn't pass it up, and I am afraid that they may discontinue this set eventually!

Hadn't seen this bundle until this post. Picked up the Bible Reader's Companion ($35) for $10. Thanks

I checked and found out that I already had all of these resources so that saved some $.
