An expansion of the editors' earlier work, The Complete Book of Bible Quotations (Pocket, 1986), these two volumes contain over 6000 quotations (about 1000 more than the one-volume work) from the King James version of the Bible, arranged under more than 800 topical headings. About a fifth of those headings are unique to either the Old or the New Testament volume. Cross references are interspersed among the headings, leading users to related topics ("see also") and from unused to used headings ("see"). Occasionally, brief explanatory notes identify the speaker of a quotation or the referent of a pronoun when either is not evident from the context?which would have been more useful had it been done throughout. The utility of the volumes is enhanced by a keyword index. Every quotation is listed by each of its keywords, except for "God" and "Lord" (and "Jesus" in the New Testament volume). Users should keep in mind that these books are not exhaustive concordances meant to list everything the Bible says on any of the topics. Instead, suitability as quotations was the key factor in selecting verses for inclusion. A cursory comparison with Burton Stevenson's The Home Book of Bible Quotations (1940) indicates that, even though there is some duplication, the coverage is complementary. Thus, libraries that collect sources of religious quotations should consider adding these two volumes even if they already own Stevenson's.?Craig W. Beard, Univ. of Alabama Lib., Birmingham
