Well-known teacher and conference speaker Warren Wiersbe adds another helpful title to his list of books with this compilation of Scripture references. Index of Biblical Images cites over four hundred similes, metaphors, and symbols found in the Bible. Images are arranged alphabetically and then further divided according to their context. For example, the metaphor of an arrow is used to represent lies, evil words, deliverance, and sons.

An eastern proverb states, "The great teacher is the one who turns our ears into eyes so that we can see the truth." Throughout the Old and New Testaments the Holy Spirit chose to share God's truth through metaphorical language, culminating in the parables and picture language of Jesus, the greatest teacher of all.

By studying Scripture and comparing verses that use the same or similar language in conveying God's truth, pastors, teachers, and serious Bible students will enrich and deepen their understanding of God's Word.
