NKJV Strong's numbers. This is available in printed from as a NKJV Strong's exhaustive concordance https://books.google.com/books/about/NKJV_Exhaustive_Concordance.html?id=aNYKAAAACAAJ&source=kp_cover&hl=en .
It is also available in Olive Tree Bible and Logos bible. I think it is also available in a couple more (I've tried so many, I forget)

I think that HarperCollins does not have such a module; OliveTree and Logos have added their own Strong numbers.

I would greatly like to have the Revised English Bible REB.
And it's (even better) predecessor the New English Bible NEB.

REB is sponsored by 15 denominations including the Church of England and the Church of Scotland. The NEB had 11. The lists are here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_English_Bible



One noted online reviewer posted that the REB would be one of his two desert island versions and "the Revised English Bible has the best overall literary quality of any modern English translation--the best since the King James Version" :

The NEB came before its revision (REB), before the era of gender inclusiveness. The NEB is also less PC for other reasons. I consider the NEB to be one of the three all time great translations, my favorites:

Today's English Version (TEV a.k.a. GNB) has the most 'soul'.
King James Version KJV and the New English Bible NEB have the most literary merit.

The REB used to be available but it's not any more. I am not sure we will be able to get it back online since the required licensing figures are probably bigger than any profits from modules sales

A really good and current Bible Atlas or Map Collection. Here's a few I use in digital and/or printed format.

The Moody Bible Atlas is an excellent atlas (and is available in digital format for WORDSearch Bible).
Zondervan Bible Atlas is excellent (and available for OliveTree)
ESV Bible Atlas

In my opinion, that Bible atlas is nothing compared to the MacMillan Bible Atlas, by Aharoni and Avi-Yonah. It has a map for every main passage of the Bible, not full-color but two-color maps, 300 in total. If I had the time, I would scan the whole thing and make a module for my own use (It is copyright), but it has too many.

Meanwhile, there is a digital version available at a premium, and I am sure that Costas could make arrangements with the publisher to convert it and sell it. Strangely, The MacMillan Bible Atlas now has a new name. The fifth edition is now called:

Carta Bible Atlas. (2011)
By: Yohanan Aharoni, Michael Avi-Yonah, Zeev Safrai, Anson F. Rainey, R. Steven Notley
Available in Kindle edition, too.
Details here, and publisher contact info: http://store.carta-jerusalem.com/49-the ... 08149.html
I will attach two sample pages below, provided by the Publisher, although these are not quite as detailed as the typical maps inside.

Meanwhile, another delightful new publication is a giant collection of cross-references linked to specific phrases throughout the entire Bible: see the details here, and a sample page also:

The Ultimate Cross-Reference Treasury
by Jerome H. Smith
Over 900,000 Bible References, meticulously cross-linked from every verse in the Scriptures

Yes, a Bible Atlas is missing indeed. We should be getting one for sure.

I have always dreamed of an atlas module linked to the Bible text as a commentary module, so that any place name clicked on would immediately reveal the related map. That might be complicated with most atlases, but with the Carta atlas all of the maps are already keyed to the Bible passages, so there would be no overlap, so that could be easy to accomplish. The publisher says it is already digitized for Kindle, but I wonder if the maps are at print resolution.

It is nice when the maps within any atlas module have an imbedded index that allows text searches for all place names displayed on those maps. That way we can search and find the same city on different maps of different eras. It might be nice to cross link the places whose names have changed over the centuries, even within the Bible record.

My experience says that the data that publishers provide is not always what you would expect :( Anyway it looks like an interesting module to be honest,

I enjoy using BDAG and was wondering if v.2 called BAGD would be possible to get.

I agree that the Carta/McMillan is an excellent collection, but have you considered that their market is more towards the professional cartographer, and the price reflects that? The ones I named are excellent in presentation and accuracy, and reasonably priced in both print and digital format.

Greetings Costas,
Here is some more information on it:
A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature, Second Edition 2nd Edition
by Walter Bauer (Author), F. Wilbur Gingrich (Author, Editor), William F. Arndt (Editor), Frederick W. Danker (Editor)
ISBN-13: 978-0226039329
ISBN-10: 0226039323
"A digest of the basic lexical information on New Testament words contained in Bauer/Arndt/Gingrich/Danker, "A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature, " Dankers revision of the acclaimed "Shorter Lexicon" draws on insights from his years of interpretation and teaching. This revision shows his concern with the needs of beginning students as well as those of ministers and scholars, and it incorporates new research, new information, and analyses, rendering translations into contemporary English."


theWORD has the 3rd Edition which is an excellent resource that I use often.
However it was recommended to me by my professor to get the 2nd edition (also) because of some definition changes, I believe.
