From The Publisher:

The best scholarship. The most up-to-date information.

Useful. Fascinating. Easy. Now.

Other CD-ROM reference libraries today make you pay for dozens of out-of-date, public domain books that do not give you the best and most recent scholarship--the timely and reliable information you want and need. By contrast, The Essential IVP Reference Collection includes only work from the best of today's biblical and theological scholars.

You'll have instant access to IVP's award-winning New Testament dictionary series (Dictionary of Jesus and the GospelsDictionary of Paul and His LettersDictionary of the Later New Testament and Its DevelopmentsDictionary of New Testament Background), the immensely popular Bible background commentaries (IVP Bible Background Commentary: Old Testament, IVP Bible Background Commentary: New Testament), and the New Bible Dictionary and New Bible Commentary, which have set the standard for Bible reference books for over a generation. And that's just the beginning! Does a particular verse trouble you? Hard Sayings of the Bible gives in-depth explanations of over 500 of the most difficult passages in the Old and New Testaments. Are you interested in the meaning of recurring images in Scripture? The Dictionary of Biblical Imagery will aid your exploration of the themes, metaphors, imagery and patterns of Scripture. New Bible Atlas, New Dictionary of Biblical Theology and New Dictionary of Theology will help round out your study of the places, peoples, interpretations and implications of biblical teaching.

On this single CD you'll find

  • over a dozen of IVP's award-winning reference books
  • the equivalent of over 12,000 pages of printed material
  • over 10 million words of the most up-to-date information on the Bible, Bible history, cultural background and theology
  • the authoritative work of hundreds of today's leading biblical and theological scholars from all over the world
  • a money-saving package that includes the equivalent of over $450 worth of printed books
  • easy-to-use software that will have you up and going in minutes
  • a free KJV Bible
  • unlockable NIV, NRSV, RSV, NASB, NLT and The Message
  • unlockable Complete Works of Josephus and Works of Philo
  • complete user's manual included right on the CD-ROM for easy access
  • every book interconnected to work as a single reference source

This exclusive collection includes works you'll find nowhere else on CD-ROM. The Essential IVP Reference Collection is ideal for pastors, scholars, students, Sunday school teachers and anyone who is serious about studying the Bible!

A free upgrade will be available from Logos when their new Libronix Integrated Digital Library System is released (scheduled for Summer 2001).

This collection is truly essential for serious students of the Old and New Testaments. It brings together a wide scope of crucial tools--maps, dictionaries, commentaries, background studies and more. Not only is it wide in its scope, its content is profound and its writing accessible. Everyone who loves the Bible should own and use this tool.

—Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College

A must-have assortment of award-winning resources in the most widely used digital format. . . . Highly recommended to all serious students of Scripture.
—John R. Kohlenberger III, co-editor, NIV Exhaustive Concordance

This is a preacher's dream come true. The Essential IVP Reference Collection provides instant access to a massive body of evangelical biblical scholarship that will empower a whole generation to preach and teach with greater accuracy and authority. Thanks be to God for this gift to the church!
—R. Kent Hughes, pastor, College Church (Wheaton, Illinois)

I cannot imagine that there is another CD-ROM in the world offering as much accredited help to the serious Bible student as you find in The Essential IVP Reference Collection. Up-to-the-minute academically, lucid, lively and sometimes provocative, it is a truly magnificent resource. And think of the money it saves--cd ..shelf space too!
—J. I. Packer
