Overview
SUBTITLE: Explained and Illustrated. Bible translators have, through inattention to figures of speech, made serious translation blunders, clouding the real meaning of many important passages of God's Word. E. W. Bullinger's volume, first published in 1898, clarifies 217 distinct figures of speech used in the Bible. Walter C. Kaiser, dean of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, calls it "the best handbook on figures of speech. It should be on every exegete's shelf."

In systematic order, this classic gives the proper pronunciation of each figure of speech, its etymology or origin, and a number of Scripture passages where the figure of speech is used, giving full explanation of its use in each context. Figures of Speech Used in the Bible cites nearly eight thousand Bible passages and includes five appendices and seven indexes, making it even more valuable as a reference tool.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Monumental Study of Figurative language  Apr 21, 2006
The Bible should be taken literally at all times except where figures of speech are bieng used. There are over 217 figures of speech used in the Bible and over 8 to 10 thousand verses that contain figurative language. E.W. Bullingers "Figures of Speech Used in the Bible" is the only book in existence that properly teaches the student all the forms of figurative speech used, and the verses where they can be found. The lack of knowledge concerning Figures of Speech has led to many errors in doctrine and interpretation. Therefore, every Christian should give great consideration to studying this topic.
 
Excellent Bible Study Tool  Feb 28, 2006
Bullinger's is an excellent Bible study tool. The book is balanced and has a long history of use in the Christian community. I bought it to replace an older copy.

This book is for Bible teachers, Pastors, and above. It is a bit involved for anyone not involved in deep, continous study of the word. It is not an "easy to read book." It is more like a dictionary where you can look up passages or specific figures of speech and see how they are used in the Bible.

I highly recommend it.
 
Absolutely outstanding book!  Jan 10, 2005
This book, along with Preaching from the Types and Metaphors of the Bible (Keach), and The Typology of Scripture (Fairbairn), make up my trio of favorite books on Figures, Metaphors, and Typologies of the Bible. No Bible study you do will truly be complete without checking the notes on your verses in this book. It is really that important, that insightful, and that well researched. The doctrine between the lines is also helpful and sound. This is (hands down), the single best book to study polysyndeton and asyndeton examples in the Bible. Excellent book!
 
A real treasure for serious Bible students   Jul 20, 2004
One of the most useful of Bible study tools, "Figures of Speech Used in the Bible" should be in personal library of anyone who is serious about Bible study. The writers of the Bible often used figures of speech that were common during their time. In fact we often use figures of speech in our everyday conversations without paying much attention to it but we do expect others to understand that we were speaking figuratively and not literally. For example, if we were to say someone is "big as a barn" we would not expect anyone to seriously think they were forty feet long, eighteen feet tall and twenty feet wide. By taking such figures of speech literally it is easy to be lead astray into false doctrines.

The other thing the book is particularly valuable for is literary analysis. The beauty of literature sometimes is its use of various literary devices. Introverted parallelism is an example of a literary device included in the book. This is where two or more items are listed in one order and then in the reverse order. For example Exodus 9:31 where it reads "And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled." First the order is flax and then barley and then the order changes to barley and then flax. Of course there are a lot of other literary devices such as acrostics, sentences that start or end with the same words, a chapter where each verse starts with the next letter of the Hebrew alphabet, or Psalms 69 where there are 22 groups of eight verses where each of the eight verses in that group all start with the same letter.

Whether it is examining these details of the Bible as literature or preventing an exegetic mistake by not understanding a figure of speech, "Figures of Speech Used in the Bible" is highly recommended and should be owned by all Bible students.
 
covers a lot of ground  Jun 23, 2004
Figures of Speech Used in the Bible is an excellent example of Bullinger's thorough and exacting examination of Bible details, which greatly assist in understanding all the spiritual messages in the Bible. I love Bullinger's works. He is one of the greatest researchers I've ever had the pleasure to use in my studies. Many times his key word descriptions help open my understanding down deep. He brings the language in the Bible to the place where it is alive with revelations. Thanks, my dear Bible lover, E. W. Bullinger.
