Many readers of the Bible are familiar with concordances, which list biblical passages in which the same word appears. But concordances fall short for the study of particular topics in God's Word. For instance, a concordance does not yield John 3:16 for a study of grace, despite the fact that it's an essential verse on the topic, because the word grace does not appear in the verse. The Complete Topical Guide to the Bible includes these related references.
This comprehensive guide to biblical topics provides references, definitions, and cross-references to related topics. The topics have been carefully organized into nine major biblical categories to help you easily find everything the Bible says on a topic and do in-depth studies of God's Word.
- Jesus Christ
- the Holy Spirit
- sin and salvation
- God's people
- the life of the believer
- the last things
