With more than a thousand new entries and more than 2,300 word-frequency ratios, the magisterial fourth edition of this book-now renamed Garner's Modern English Usage (GMEU)-reflects usage lexicography at its finest. Garner explains the nuances of grammar and vocabulary with thoroughness, finesse, and wit. He discourages whatever is slovenly, pretentious, or pedantic.

GMEU is the liveliest and most compulsively readable reference work for writers of our time. It delights while providing instruction on skillful, persuasive, and vivid writing. Garner liberates English from two extremes: both from the hidebound "purists" who mistakenly believe that split infinitives and sentence-ending prepositions are malfeasances and from the linguistic relativists who believe that whatever people say or write must necessarily be accepted.

The judgments here are backed up not just by a lifetime of study but also by an empirical grounding in the largest linguistic corpus ever available. In this fourth edition, Garner has made extensive use of corpus linguistics to include ratios of standard terms as compared against variants in modern print sources. No other resource provides as comprehensive, reliable, and empirical a guide to current English usage.

For all concerned with writing and editing, GMEU will prove invaluable as a desk reference. Garner illustrates with actual examples, cited with chapter and verse, all the linguistic blunders that modern writers and speakers are prone to, whether in word choice, syntax, phrasing, punctuation, or pronunciation. No matter how knowledgeable you may already be, you're sure to learn from every single page of this book.

Entire four-volume set in one-volume!

This is the ONLY Bible that includes the complete Hebrew and Greek texts with a direct English translation below each word. It also includes "The Literal Translation of the Bible" in the outside column, so you can easily read through the Bible. Strong's numbers are printed directly above the Hebrew and Greek words so you don't need prior knowledge of Greek or Hebrew to dig even deeper into Scripture and its meaning.

Most Bibles Don't Show ALL the Hebrew and Greek Keywords—Imagine Having One that Does!

Keyword Study Bibles are great—but most only show some select keywords. This is the only Bible that goes through ALL the words—showing the Old Testament Hebrew, New Testament Greek, and the English translation side-by-side!

Quickly see which Hebrew or Greek word is used in EACH verse—at a glance.

This is a must-have Bible (and study tool)! Use it as your primary translation or along side other translations to dig deeper.

Enjoy Having These Key Features at Your Fingertips

The majority of believers (including pastors) are unable to read biblical Hebrew and Greek. But that no longer means you can't enjoy the Bible in its original languages. This easy-to-use Bible does the first step of a word-study for you, saving you time and making it easier to read through the Bible.

Enjoy having these features at your fingertips:

Side-by-Side Translations—Conveniently includes the entire Hebrew and Greek texts and English translation of the Bible in one place! Easy-to-understand—You don't need to know Greek or Hebrew to read this Bible. The English and literal translations are included. Plus each word is already keyed to the Exhaustive Strong's Concordance: so you can dig deeper into each word's meaning Accurate—It includes a concise, literal translation of each Greek and Hebrew word, it's a great jumping off point for in-depth Bible study. It even includes extra study resources, such as Christ in the Old Testament! Easy-to-Use—This Bible used to only be available in 4 separate volumes (making it hard to carry with you). But this version combines ALL 4 volumes into one easy-to-use Bible.

Please Note: Due to the amount of information covered, this Bible's font size is slightly smaller than the average Bible, but is definitely still readable (4-5pts). Any larger font would require multiple volumes.

See the Bible's Original Languages and Their Translation Side-by-Side

The translation is shown IN LINE, which means you don't lose your place by having to look at footnotes, flipping to the back of your Bible, or consulting another resource. You can see the original language and its translation side-by-side in ONE Bible.
