First published in 1915 by the Howard-Severence Company, this product has been completely revised in this 1988/1995 edition by the Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company.

This set contains over 9,000 topics and 3,500 cross-references, including an article on every name of a person or place mentioned in the Bible. It also examines major Bible doctrines and gives opposing articles on controversial topics to ensure a rounded explanation and description. Hundreds of evangelical contributors from many fields of biblical research make this encyclopedia a well-rounded resource. The Dead Sea Scrolls, the Apocrypha and other extrabiblical resources are utilized and explained.

This work is based on the Revised Standard Version, however the distinctive readings of the AV and the NEB are included usually as cross-references.

ISBE is also an exegetical tool because it provides a brief discussion of problem texts under the English keywords and guides the exegete to more information that is found in other scholarly resources. Each entry provides a maximum amount of information in compact form, including pronunciation, etymology, and variant renderings. This is a must have for any biblical scholar.

I owned both the original ISBE and this version. I compared this version and the previous version. My conclusion was the version expanded the previous ISBE a lot. However, the original version still holds a great value in it. However, personally, I would recommend own both versions.

For instance, "Kingdom of God", the older version was written by James Stalker. The content is below:
I. MEANING AND ORIGIN OF THE TERM
1. Place in the Gospels
2. “Kingdom of Heaven” and “Kingdom of God”
3. Relation to the OT (Daniel, etc.)

II. ITS USE BY JESUS — CONTRAST WITH JEWISH CONCEPTIONS
1. Current Jewish Opinions
2. Relation of Jesus to Same
3. Growing Divergence and Contrast
4. Prophetic Character of the “Temptation”
5. Modern “Futuristic” Hypothesis (J. Weiss, Schweitzer)
6. Weakness of This View
7. Positive Conceptions of Jesus

III. THE IDEA IN HISTORY
1. Apostolic and Post-apostolic Age
2. Early Christian Centuries
3. Reformation Period
4. Later Ideas

IV. PLACE IN THEOLOGY

BIBLIOGRAPHY. The literature on the kingdom of God is immense. For the use of the term in the Gospels, see G. Dalman, The Words of Jesus, 1902; SB, pp. 172–184; for the interpretation of the kingdom in the history of earlier theology see A. Robertson, Regnum Dei (Bampton Lectures), 1901; for the older liberal approach, see E. von Dobschstz, ‘The Eschatology of the Gospels,’ The Expositor, 7th Series, 9, 1910; for the ‘social’ interpretation, see N. J. van Merwe, Die sosiale prediking van Jezus Christus, 1921; L. Ragaz, Die Botschaft vom Reiche Gottes, 1941; for the newer eschatological interpretation (since J. Weiss, Die Predigt Jesu vom Reiche Gottes, 1892; Albert Schweitzer, The Quest of the Historical Jesus, 1910), see H. M. Matter, Nieuwere opvattingen omtrent het koninkrijk Gods in Jezus’ prediking naar de synoptici, 1942. More general works: F. Holmström, Das eschatologische Denken der Gegenwart, 1936; H. D.
