Customer Reviews for ISBE Volume 2 (E-J) Revised Edition
Review 1 for ISBE Volume 2 (E-J) Revised Edition
ISBE Vol. 2
Date:June 13, 2013
The revised ISBE is moderate to traditional in it's world view, it is NOT conservative. Some of the articles from the old ISBE edited by James Orr, et al, are imported wholesale into this edition. While the research is excellent, the conclusions bear watching and cross-testing with more conservative sources. I have the set in my physical library, and am subscribed to it's e-edition under the LOGOS banner. There has been much in recent scholarship and research, and this edition of ISBE has captured those.
I have been very pleased with the ISBE - Revised. The old ISBE was also very helpful but in time it became dated. The revised version is current, reliable, and almost exhaustive in the topics it covers. I highly recommend it.
