Reference (50 Books)


Reference as a category refers to works which you can refer to for confirmed facts. Reference works are usually referred to for particular pieces of information, rather than read beginning to end. The writing style used in these works is informative; the authors avoid use of the first person, and emphasize facts. Many reference works are compiled by a team of contributors whose work is coordinated by one or more editors rather than by an individual author. Indexes are commonly provided in many types of reference work. Reference works include dictionaries, thesauruses, encyclopedias, almanacs, bibliographies, and catalogs. Many reference works are available in electronic form and can be obtained as software packages or online through the Internet.

Hebrew Comparisons : Aleph Edition: Aleph Edition

By: Benjamin Lee Cooper

They words in the list say what the origin of the word is. For example, I explain if the word is NOT in the Bible, has a different meaning than in the Bible, or if it is a Modern day transliteration of another language (usually English). I have also sometimes listed the alternative word that would have been used in the Bible. Eventually I hope to have an alternative word listed for every word in this book.

This book is essentially an enhanced dictionary that can also be used for these other purposes: 1: to discover what root a word belongs to. 2: to discover roots that other dictionaries do not recognize. 3: to compare Biblical words with modern meanings in some important situations.

"I'm Not a Racist, But..." Planning and Delivering Anti-Racist Tra...

By: Carol Young, Co-Author; Guðrún Pétursdóttir, Co-Author

This handbook is designed for trainers who design and deliver anti-racism, anti-discrimination or anti-prejudice training. Its aim is to support trainers to make their work as effective as possible, including by influencing resistant learners with approaches which have been shown to change attitudes. It has a focus on everyday racism, which provides a practical and relatable way of communicating the impacts of racism and the importance of challenging it.

Organisations have many different motivations for ensuring that their staff receive anti-racism training. Morally and ethically, it’s the right thing to do. Research has shown that workers’ experience of racism is associated with a range of health problems, both mental and physical. However, there are also business benefits. From avoiding legal risks to minimising conflict in the workplace, organisations have an expectation that training will solve any potential problem...

Counting Roots: Beit Edition

By: Benjamin Lee Cooper

This book is essentially an enhanced dictionary that can also be used for these other purposes: 1: to determine the frequencies of word usage in the Tanakh ('Old' Testament). 2: to more easily compare words with similar spellings. 3: to discover the chapter number of each Bible chapter. 4: to discover verses in other chapters that link information with the chapter number that you are looking at. 5: to discover important information about a Bible chapter ...

The main thing that this 'dictionary' lacks that other 'dictionaries' might have is the verse locations of each place a word is used in. This is common with Concordances of the Bible. Because it would increase the size of this book by more than a 1000 pages, and the time it would take to list each word location, I have decided to not include concordance information in this dictionary, even though that would be something I would have wanted to do if I had the time and pat...
