Concordances of this kind are what the Bible reader needs most often, i.e. finding aids to words and (hopefully) to names in the Bible, including, for Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican (and even some Lutheran) readers, their occurrences in the Old Testament's Deuterocanonical writings ("Apocrypha") as well as in the rest of the canon of the Holy Scriptures. This concordance provides all of this, for the Revised Standard Version-Catholic Edition (R.S.V.-C.E.), of 1966, and, in an appendix, for the Second Catholic Edition (R.S.V.-C.E.2), of 2006, as well, for divergences between its text and that of the original Catholic Edition. It would have been desirable to have the differences between the two Catholic Editions indexed in one sequence, with perhaps some typographical device (e.g., italic letters) to identify the divergent C.E.2 wordings, but this is a small quibble. Perhaps the time lapse between the publication of the Second Catholic Edition (copyrighted and published in 2006) and this concordance (copyrighted in 2008, even if it was published in 2009) simply did not leave time to revise the work already far advanced on the concordance, without unduly delaying the completion of the publication project. (However, doing that would have accounted more conveniently, in a single indexing sequence, the content of the R.S.V.-C.E.2.) Since the R.S.V.-C.E.2 is so superior to the R.S.V.-C.E. first edition, stylistically and textually (to rather more theologically and exetically orthodox effect), one hopes that a later edition of this work will display the words and names indexed for the R.S.V.-C.E.2 more conveniently in the main body of the concordance.

This concordance is NOT an "analytic concordance", i.e.

I am truly impressed by this concordance. It seems exhaustively researched and will be a true asset for anybody who needs a good way to look up words and cross-references in the Bible. The books and verse references for each word are easy to see and it is actually pretty interesting to find places where a particular word is used frequently that we might not expect. In this way, it opens up the Bible to the casual browser as well as the serious researcher. Be aware that this is for the RSV translation of the Catholic Bible.

For what the book claims to be, it's actually rather good. That having been said...

I thought that a previous reviewer might have received a "bad egg" when the book was described as having missing pages glued back into the book. However, this seems to be the norm for this volume, as mine is in the same condition. How unprofessional, shoddy, and amateur, to simply glue pages into the book. Any good company would have recalled the title, reprinted it, and hiked the price to pay for the mistake. However, Emmaus Road Publishing has simply opted for the cheap fix at the expense of their customers. It seems that they either do not respect their customers or do not believe in their product.

Please don't waste your money here.

EDIT - 24 March 2010

I contacted Emmaus Road, notifying them of my displeasure. I asked them when they will be printing the book as a whole. I was told that the second printing would be late spring or early summer 2010, and that they would send me a new copy when it printed. If you bought this and were displeased, you might want to contact the publisher. Should the second printing be good, I will immediately eat my review and change it to five stars.

EDIT - 29 August 2010

I received my new copy of the Catholic Bible Concordance in the mail yesterday. It is now an attractive volume, and as a result, I am eating my review. Three cheers to Emmaus Road Publishing for their work. There is only one minor sticking point, but it is not enough to knock my review to four stars. In the back of the book, there is an appendix that lists more uses of words covered in the concordance itself. For instance, one finds many uses of "chalice" in the main concordance, and then one must turn to the appendix to find the balance of its appearances. I don't understand this layout, but it is simply a cosmetic quirk.

I will buy this volume as a gift for my friends in the clergy, and I recommend you do the same.

In order to arrive at the word I'm looking for I must go to the first letter and scroll past hundreds of entries page-by-page om my Kindle. On my first day it has frozen on a given page and I had to get out of the book all together. It is indeed exhaustive, BUT the process of arriving at a given word on the e-book is exhausting! I have twenty other books on my Kindle with no such problem.

If you are doing bible study, or praying by the method of Lectio Divina, this is invaluable. When the verse you have an interest in is only duplicated one other time in the Bible, but the situations are similar, you know that God is speaking to you. The Concordance is extremely thorough. I have both the hard copy book and the E-version. It will enhance your spirituality and goes perfectly with the RSV version of the Bible.

Haven't had time to memorize the Holy Scriptures?
Well, me neither, but now I can relax a little because I have The Catholic Bible Concordance!

This awesome book enables you to find what you need, when you need it.
Trying to remember whether it was Elijah or Elisha?
Can't recall which Synoptic enjoins loving God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, *and* all your strength?
Perhaps you were just wondering where in the Bible you can find the basis for the seven Sacraments.
Pick this book up, and you will never be at a loss!
