International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915) is a public domain Biblical encyclopedia. It was published under the general editorship of James Orr (1844-1913), among other objectives to counteract the impact of higher criticism.
This encyclopedia was published by the Howard-Severance Co., Chicago, 1915, and was reissued by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. in 1989. It contains articles by nearly 200 scholars about archaeological discoveries, the language and literature of Bible lands, customs, family life, occupations, and the historical and religious environments of Bible people.
In addition there is a newer version which should not be confused with the public domain 1915 edition that can be found freely available at various sites.
