What a pity that with the modern computer technology available it is always Strong's Exhaustive concordance that is used as a pattern rather than Young's Analytical which was just as comprehensive (in theory at least) but which had the added advantage of taking one directly to the Greek and Hebrew without having to be given a number which one then has to look up in the dictionary at the back.
For those still using the AV Stongest Strongs is certainly an improvement over the original Strongs in that the dictionary definitions have been improved. However the paper quality is abyssmal - so thin it is difficult not to damage pages, print shows through the paper from the opposite side, and any annotations show right through.
Users of other versions should use the appropriate Exhaustive Concordance for their versions - I know ones exist for NASB, NIV, and NKJV. Kohlenberger seems to start work as soon as a new version appears!

I love using this to help me really grasp those word meanings. However, I don't use a King James as my normal reading translation, so when I find a word I want to know, I have to get the old KJ out to find the word in that, then look it up in Strong's. Good for seeing differences in translation but does mean you need a good sized table or a very big lap!

This concordance is based on the King James version of the Bible. For example, it lists the word "naughtiness" (James chapter 1 verse 21). The New King James uses the word "wickedness" other versions the word "evil".

I use the website Blueletterbible as an online concordance and dictionary but also wanted a "traditional" way of looking up Bible words. This book is a 3 in one: Concordance, Greek dictionary and Hebrew dictionary. Although it has a further addition the "Nave's Topical Bible Reference System".

I have posted some photos which show how big the book is, the paper quality is similar to that of a telephone directory.

Strong's Concordance has always been one of the best tools to aid effective Bible study. The Strongest Strong's has been updated by better cross referencing and the inclusion of Goodrich-Kohlenberger numbers.
A guide to the use of the concordance eases you in although this section could be expanded.
Generally excellent value for money and a must for any serious Bible student.

Unlike many who possess this book, I am not an academic Bible scholar. I generally don't need to translate exact meanings from Greek or Hebrew. However, I would not be without this book.
1. For £9.99, you can't go wrong.
2. Ever thought 'I know it comes in the Bible somewhere, but I can't remember where?' If so, then you need this book.
3. Need Biblical maps? They are in this book.
4. Need to know about the Hebrew calendar, or weights and measures? There is a section.
5. Not quite au fait with the chronology? Strong's has it covered.

In short, a Biblical concordance is for anyone who wants to do self-directed Bible study - not just the professionals - and this is a good one.

As others have said, Strong's is based on the King James Version of the Bible, so works best when used with that version. However, my primary Bible is The NKJV Study Bible: Second Edition and that works just fine for my purposes.

If you are serious about studying the Holy Bible then this is a supplement that you cannot do without. Its easy to handle format gives you great definition for Bible words and Bible context and also provides a Greek and Hebrew dictionary of translated Englsih words making it easier to understand the Holy Bible in the contect that it is written.

By far the best concordance, and this updated version is even better. But it is nicknamed "Strong's Exhausting Concordance" because of its weight! You will not want to carry it around for long. Can't be helped. of course, without the print becoming too small or the paper too thin.

Strongs is widely respected, and although his interpretations of some of the original Greek and Hebrew words may be less than perfect, the discrepancies are well known and documented, and people who take their Bible seriously do tend to stick with Strong's numbering system, which has always worked well.

If you need a printed concordance, this is it. Don't waste your money on inferior competitors. But do consider MySword for Android on your phone, which has much of the functionality of Strong's built in, if you need portability.

I have never ordered a second hand book before so was not sure what to expect. It came via the amazing Prime in a box that was just the right size and is in good condition. The inscription inside said that a son bought it for a Christmas present for his Mum ten years ago. It has been lovingly used and I intend to keep that going. I will consider getting used books again especially if they are expensive items. Thankyou.
