Presenting the NIV Compact Series in softcover. Smart. Convenient. Keep the whole set within reach on your desktop. Grab a volume or two volumes and take them with you anywhere. Each NIV Compact book packs a lot of information in a small package--one that fits where other books won't and travels light when larger volumes tip the scales. And the price is as compact as the size--but don't let the modest cost fool you. There's a lot of knowledge here, condensed to provide the most salient information in an efficient format. For a hand-sized reference library that does more than scratch the surface, this 4-volume series is the route to take: big on insight, small in size, and easy on the pocketbook. Now in softcover, the NIV Compact Series includes: ? NIV Compact Bible Commentary--Begins with the larger context--the Bible as a whole--then shows how all its books fit into the grand picture. It offers valuable, wide-angle perspectives on the central messages of Scripture ? NIV Compact Nave's Topical Bible-- Based on the NIV Nave's Topical Bible, this compact edition omits biblical text while retaining topical muscle. And like its full-sized counterpart, it improves on the original, KJV-based edition by adding more than 500 headings, 2,000 subtopics, and 1,300 cross-references. ? NIV Compact Concordance-- This streamlined adaptation of the award-winning NIV Exhaustive Concordance provides more than 50,000 references and over 2,000 exhaustive entries for practical and significant Bible study. ? NIV Compact Dictionary of the Bible-- This unique volume is actually three books in one: a dictionary for easy-to-find, practical information on thousands of topics; a topical index for detailed study of nearly 150 larger topics; and a survey providing an introductory overview of the Bible, biblical history, and biblical cultureFrom the Author:
