The Rich Meaning Behind the Hebrew and Greek Words of the Bible Whether you’re a pastor, a student, or simply a lover of the Bible, this book helps you get more out of God’s Word by revealing the original meanings of key biblical words. The reader-friendly, narrative style makes it easy to explore the Hebrew and Greek words that lie behind the English words. You’ll discover significant shades of meaning and nuances that bring depth to your understanding of Scripture. This highly accessible reference tool surpasses the well-known Vine’s Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words in a number of ways: • Thorough coverage of both Old and New Testaments gives you a firm grasp of the entire Bible. • The Goodrick/Kohlenberger numbering system allows for accurate identification of Hebrew and Greek words. • Top evangelical scholarship ensures current insights into the meanings of words. • Biblical concepts are fully discussed, providing you not only with understanding, but also, where appropriate, with practical and devotional insights you can apply to your life. • Entry words are taken from the NIV and the NASB—respectively, the best-selling contemporary translation and today’s most literal word-for-word translation. • Major KJV terms are cross-referenced to broaden your understanding of translational nuances and distinctions. • Four indexes include: Hebrew words, Greek words, Scripture references, and topical index. “Exceptional value . . .

Did God approve of Rahab’s lie? Why are many of the Old Testament quotes in the New Testament not literal? Does the Bible class abortion with murder? Where did Adam and Eve’s sons get their wives? Does 1 Corinthians 7:10–16 authorize divorce for desertion? What do you make of the difficult areas in the Bible—those puzzling passages that make you stop and scratch your head? The seeming contradictions and inconsistencies of Scripture actually have sound explanations. But unless you’re a Bible scholar, you probably don’t know about them. That’s why you need the New International Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties. It gives you informed answers to your most troublesome questions. Some of the solutions seem obvious—after you’ve read them. But most include an eye-opening look at linguistic, cultural, numerical, relational, and other considerations of which most Bible readers are unaware. Referencing both the New International Version and the New American Standard Bible, this helpful resource makes scholarly insights accessible to everyone. Whether you’re a student, pastor, everyday Bible-lover, or even a skeptic, the New International Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties will show you why the Bible is believable and dependable, with a message you can live by.

The International Encyclopedia of Information and Library Science was published to widespread acclaim in 1996, and has become the major reference work in the field. This eagerly awaited new edition has been fully revised and updated to take full account of the many and radical changes which have taken place since the Encyclopedia was originally conceived. With nearly 600 entries, written by a global team of over 150 contributors, the subject matter ranges from mobile library services provided by camel and donkey transport to search engines, portals and the World Wide Web. The new edition retains the successful structure of the first with an alphabetical organization providing the basic framework of a coherent collection of connected entries. Conceptual entries explore and explicate all the major issues, theories and activities in information and library science, such as the economics of information and information management. A wholly new entry on information systems, and enhanced entries on the information professions and the information society, are key features of this new edition. Topical entries deal with more specific subjects, such as collections management and information services for ethnic minorities. New or completely revised entries include a group of entries on information law, and a collection of entries on the Internet and the World Wide Web.

This new Encyclopedia draws upon articles in The International Encyclopedia of Education, 2nd Edition (described by Choice as being "a premier resource when judged on virtually every criteria applied to a reference work") with revisions as well as new articles. It provides an understanding of where the economics of education has been, where it is heading, and where it needs to go in the future to provide further insights into the human role in production and the production of human skills valued in the labour market. The economics of education has both been expanded into new areas of research and has deepened and changed its analysis of traditional areas, such as educational finance, the production of knowledge, and the relation between education and economic growth. In the past decade theories have been modified and new concepts have appeared. The rapid change within the field convinced the publisher and the Editors-in-Chief of the need for a completely new edition of this valuable compilation. The volume is divided into eight sections: The economics of education, then and now, education and labour markets, the benefits of education, education economic growth and technological change, education, income distribution and discrimination, the production of education, evaluating educational investment, and financing education. Each of the sections has its own introduction.

Recently the topic of civil society has generated a wave of interest, and a wealth of new information. Until now no publication has attempted to organize and consolidate this knowledge. The International Encyclopedia of Civil Society fills this gap, establishing a common set of understandings and terminology, and an analytical starting point for future research. Global in scope and authoritative in content, the Encyclopedia offers succinct summaries of core concepts and theories; definitions of terms; biographical entries on important figures and organizational profiles. In addition, it serves as a reliable and up-to-date guide to additional sources of information. In sum, the Encyclopedia provides an overview of the contours of civil society, social capital, philanthropy and nonprofits across cultures and historical periods. For researchers in nonprofit and civil society studies, political science, economics, management and social enterprise, this is the most systematic appraisal of a rapidly growing field.
