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

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
1. Danger of Exageration
2. Elements of Living Power in Idea


The revised version content is below. Moreover, the Kingdom of God article was written based on the following bibliograph.
I. In John the Baptist

II. In the teaching of Jesus
a. Present aspect
b. Future aspect

III. Kingdom and church

IV. In the rest of the New Testament

V. In theological thought

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. Wendland, Die Eschatologie des Reiches Gottes bei Jesus, 1931; G. Gloege, Reich Gottes und Kirche im Neuen Testament, 1929; J.
