The Condensed Biblical Cyclopedia covers major people, places, events and topics in the Bible. Each article is written concisely while still covering the key elements of that topic with links back to main passages in the Bible related to the article.

In all there are 57 articles including topics such as Abram, Creation, the Exodus, the Hebrew Calendar, the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, the Law, the Sabbath and feasts, the Twelve Apostles and Worship.
