What's New in Version 1.0 (See full changelog)

  • Uploaded Mac/e-sword 11 version.

esword is one of the best electronical bible I have used.

can someone add more info about this isbe? which version author etc

I've taken this from a review on another site....but its fair and accurate !

There seems little doubt that the ISBE is the industry standard when it comes to BIble encyclopedias. It is famous, it has stood the test of time and it is in wide use at theological colleges across the globe.
With 10,000 individual articles, the ISBE covers everything you can think of in the Bible. And I mean everything.

Think of a word, term or place you have heard of in Scripture: the ISBE has an article about it. It is absolutely comprehensive.

In fact, many of the articles are about things you didn't even know were in the Bible!

Where else can you find out about the Viol, the work of the Atetas or how to identify Ziv?

Trivia aside, there are also valuable articles on what you might call Bible related issues such as the Mishna, Targums, Apocrypha, the era between the Testaments & many more.

Personally, I still prefer to have a book to lay out on my desk when I am doing some research, but it is hard to resist turning to the ISBE now that it is online
If you like to study the Bible, you must put this one in your list of favourites. If you don't consider yourself a student, have a go anyway. The articles are alphabetically listed so you can think of a topic & search for it, or simply scroll through the index alphabetically & read what takes your interest.

The ISBE is one of the greatest literary contributions to the Church in the modern era. How can you resist using it?

Alroy...I can tell you this much personally....It does cover EVERYTHING !!! And it is loaded with Scripture links as well.
You won't go wrong downloading this one !! Once you do get it on E-sword and have clicked on it in your Dictionary window....the module I have has an extensive Article about this Encyclopedia...just click on "Dictionary" at the top of your e-sword page...
a drop-down will appear...go down to "Information"...click there and a window will come up and it gives you a wealth of information about this Resource.

The I.S.B.E. that you see here at BibleSupport.com may be a different revision date than the one you can download thru The E-sword program itself...which is the one I have. To download thru the Program...Open the E-sword Program....at the top of the page click on "Download"...a drop-down will open....click on "Dictionaries"...in the Free section you will find it listed about 5 books down.


thank you, but is it the one edited by Geofrey Bromiley http://www.amazon.co...le encyclopedia



Knowing the author source etc will be useful when you want to quote and put it in your references....

The ISBE from within E-sword itself is Edited by: Morris O.Evans...of Cincinnati.Ohio.
The ISBE from here at BibleSupport.com...I have no information on...as I don't have a copy of it.


thank you for the prompt and useful info I was able to find the book on amazon and did a basic verification to see that it is the same ..this is the one:


The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (5 volume set) Hardcover
by James Orr (Editor) , John L. Nuelsen (Editor) , Edgar Y. Mullins (Editor) , Morris O. Evans (Editor) ,Melvin Grove Kyle (Editor)


EXCELLENT !!......I love it when a plan comes thru !! 



ed. by Geofrey Bromiley is an updated version still in copyright.  E-sword ISBE is PD.  Theology does not change.  Of course archeologically and linguistcally Orr (Ed.) is  dated.  In other words, if U want to study geography and something about greek and hebrew, as well as MSS, textual criticism, then one needs to find a more up to date source.  Other than that Orr (Ed.) has words, which NIDNTT,  NIDOTT do not cover.  Hastings works have also great articles as well.  However be critical of anything you read from anyone teaching.  Test all teachings.

What edition is it? 1915? 1930? 1939? or 1959?
