Rely on authoritative articles from a trusted source This encyclopedia is truly an exceptional work.

The contributors included such noted scholars as Charles Hodge (Systematic Theology) and Philip Schaff (History of the Christian Church). Together their 20-year effort resulted in an encyclopedia that can be relied on and trusted by everyone. Upon publication, it was considered the best survey of biblical scholarship available.
You're more likely to find what you are looking for with McClintock & Strong's Cyclopedia The Encyclopedia is packed full of the information you need to understand the significant topics, people, places and words that you encounter every day in God's Word. Take advantage of its extensive descriptions of the life of Christ, Paul and other important Biblical characters. Or explore the meaning of terms like “evangelical” or “millennium.” Its 31,000+ articles mean you're more likely to find the article you are looking for in the Encyclopedia than in any other PC Study Bible dictionary or encyclopedia!
Get a thorough understanding of the topic Even more important than the number of articles the Encyclopedia contains is the fact that it completely explains the topics it covers. Most of the topics are explored with a degree of detail never before attempted. And many of its articles are still superior to, and more comprehensive than, articles on the same subjects appearing today. For example, the article on the Talmud not only explains these Jewish writings and how they came to be, but uses excerpts from the Talmud to explain the weaknesses of the writings. And the article on Marriage lays out its origin, history and more.
