Keyed to Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, the Interlinear Hebrew-English Bible offers pastors, students, and laypeople a time-saving tool for researching the subtle nuances and layers of meaning within the original biblical languages.

The idea was good for this short story but I felt it was lacking in execution. For a short story, many of the details used for building real characters were superfluous and created confusion not character.

Jay Green did an amazing job putting together the works he did. By providing the Strong's number (used by James Strong in his Strong's Concordance) interlinearly, and then republishing several of the old (public domain) materials after adding in the Strong's number to them, he made minor linguistic research of the Bible possible for the masses. Why did I say minor - because it is also easy to misconstrue facts by not knowing enough ("A little knowledge is a dangerous thing"). That is not the fault of the people who make such works available, but of the ones who use them without understanding enough.
As useful as all this work Green did/had done, I had to knock off a star because Green way over-extended himself. That is clear from the occasional omissions, errors, and such like. Personally, I don't understand how he did such a good job without the computers we all require today. But for someone working, much of the time alone, with such a multiplicity of materials, making mistakes was unavoidable (how many times have you seen a book with typos the modern spell-checker missed?), but by trying to do everything, there are additional mistakes made that would have been caught if he had had the time.
I have been using his materials since the mid-70s and find them so invaluable that I am able to work around the mistakes. I put the correct number in my copy, and continue on. The occasional typo is not a problem for me, but could mess somebody up if not prepared for them. The materials are well worth it, and the newer books with better work are not worth the extreme extra cost for someone on a budget. I have caught typos in them as well!
When I bought this, it was perfect for my needs. But my eyes are changing, and I wish now I had bought the four-volume set (much larger characters) instead of the one-volume set, because even with good light and a magnifier, especially on the Hebrew vowel pointing, this version can be difficult to read for me now, when it wasn't back in the 80s!
