The best scholarship. The most up-to-date information. Useful. Fascinating. Easy.

Other CD-ROM reference libraries today make you pay for dozens of out-of-date, public domain books that do not give you the best and most recent scholarship--the timely and reliable information you want and need. By contrast, The Essential IVP Reference Collection includes only work from the best of today's biblical and theological scholars.

You'll have instant access to IVP's award-winning New Testament dictionary series:

  1. Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels,

  3. Dictionary of the Later New Testament and Its Developments,
  4. Dictionary of New Testament Background
the immensely popular Bible background commentaries:
  1. IVP Bible Background Commentary: Old Testament,
  2. IVP Bible Background Commentary: New Testament
as well as the New Bible Dictionary and New Bible Commentary which have set the standard for Bible reference books for over a generation. And that's just the beginning! Does a particular verse trouble you? Hard Sayings of the Bible gives in-depth explanations of over 500 of the most difficult passages in the Old and New Testaments. Are you interested in the meaning of recurring images in Scripture? The Dictionary of Biblical Imagery will aid your exploration of the themes, metaphors, imagery and patterns of Scripture. New Bible Atlas, New Dictionary of Biblical Theology and New Dictionary of Theology will help round out your study of the places, peoples, interpretations and implications of biblical teaching.

On this single CD you'll find:

This exclusive collection includes works you'll find nowhere else on CD-ROM, including many just published during 2000. The Essential IVP Reference Collection is ideal for pastors, scholars, students, Sunday school teachers and anyone who is serious about studying the Bible!
