Cambridge Transetto Edition KJV

The Transetto from Cambridge is a new concept in printing design. It’s printed in landscape format, opening vertically rather than horizontally, making it both easy to carry and easy to read. When opened, the pages appear in portrait format as a single page with two columns of text. The Transetto cover is a thick card-stock that is not attached on one side. This allows the text-block to bend the gutter up so the pages blend together and appear as one page. This works well because it is a sewn binding with India paper. The page numbers and book names are printed so that if you open the Bible like a standard book you can easily thumb through to the book you’re looking for. The font is small but still easy to read. It seems like about a 6-point, but that’s just a guess. The text is neither verse nor paragraph format. Each chapter is printed as one paragraph with large chapter numbers breaking the paragraphs up. It does have the standard KJV paragraph symbols (known as pilcrow). Both the chapter numbers and paragraph markers are a nice green. There is also a daily reading plan to read the Bible through in a year. For its size (4.6 x 3.1 x 1.2 inches opening to about 4.5 x 6), the Transetto is a handy little Bible. It is easy to...

Miklal Software Solutions Strongs Hebrew Dictionary of the Bible for Kindle

I recently reviewed Miklal Software Solutions Strong’s Greek Dictionary of the Bible for Kindle, and I must say the Hebrew dictionary is just as impressive. Like their Strong’s Greek Dictionary, Miklal Software Solutions Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary of the Bible is also available for nook. I’ve always said that Strong’s dictionaries are must-have tools for Bible study. Miklal Software Solutions offers Strong’s Hebrew Dictionary, a perfect complement to their Strong’s Greek Dictionary, providing yet another must-have tool in e-book format. Navigation is among the best on Kindle. Rather than being read in sequence, reference works such as this have a challenge in making navigation simple enough to make it useful. Like their Strong’s Greek Dictionary, Miklal Software Solutions delivers again with their simple but powerful navigation system. The first is a table of contents that provides the Hebrew alphabet and the Strong’s numbers for each letter. Selecting the letter provides the next level of screens, which provides two letters and the Strong’s numbers related to those numbers. Another type of navigation is done through hyperlinks within the text. If you know the Strong’s number you’re looking for, simply type the letter ‘h’ and the Strong’s number. This will take you directly to the definition you want. You can also search for the transliterated word (ex: Elohim). Quick and easy. Miklal Software Solutions has done an excellent job in developing Strong’s...

Is the Bible Reliable, Tyndale Publishing TrueU Series Volume 2

Is the Bible Reliable? building the historical case from Tyndale Publishing is a 2-DVD and book set from the creators of Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project. This is the second set in the TrueU series. The DVDs include five hours of classroom lectures which covers 10 lessons on archaeological finds and how those finds correlate to events in the Bible, showing the Bible to be accurate and reliable through external corroboration. The book is a companion to the lectures and includes questions from the lectures, archaeological facts, photos of archaeological artifacts, interviews with archaeologists, a glossary for each chapter, lots of fun cartoons, and more. The lectures are given by Dr. Stephen Meyer. They are well delivered and filled with fascinating information. Meyer uses visuals and shows what we find in Scripture, and then shows external archaeological evidence that backs up the Bibles’ claims. Meyer delivers strong evidence that the Bible is reliable from an archaeological standpoint. The companion guide is meant to help guide you through the lectures. It does contain some facts and photos, but there’s not enough in it to use as a carry-with-me defender’s guide. The real strength in this series is the DVD lectures. You’ll want to watch it several times and I recommend taking notes to build your own defender’s guide. I recommend Is the Bible Reliable? DVD set, as I...
