Over 9000 articles covering over 12,000 terms – every significant word in the Old Testament, New Testament and Apocrypha. Created in response to a growing need for solid, Bible-based reference materials for pastors, teachers, and students of the Bible. The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia is unrivaled in both scope and depth. While taking a conservative approach to the material, it does not shy away from controversial topics; presenting dissenting points of view written by experts in their respective fields.

Originally published in five volumes, the PocketBible edition is presented as one book. The text is that of the original 1915 edition as edited by James Orr, with minor updates to make it easier to read.
