The topic of Bible has its roots in the work of Orville James Nave at the beginning of the twentieth century and completed in 1904. It was published by Thomas Nelson and continues to not to be published by them but by other publishing houses as well. This was before the time of computers. So it took Nave fourteen years to compile all the topics of the Bible which he went from scripture verse to scripture verse, taking every topic, every word like ropes or light or piece and use them in such a way that he could show the usages of them so that people had to study Bible that they could go topic by topic. If they do not want to go by verse by verse, wanting to find out it specifically what a particular topic is covered throughout the scriptures. The topic headings are usually very broad and you will find that the topic of Bible reaches many people who study the Bible particularly because they want to know about a particular topic. There are several kinds of Bible studies. The Baptist have a Baptist Topical Bible Study that you can find to teach in Sunday schools. There's none other than Nave's Topical Bible but, there's Zondervan Topical Bible as well and there are some websites that are helpful as well; www.openbible.info is one of the sites that you can go to and it has a place for topical studies. Also, www.biblegateway.com/topical is a very interesting website as well that will help you. There is also a Catholic Topical Bible. So whichever faith tradition you are in, you're going to be able to find some resources within the Topical Bible genre for helping you in the study of the sacred scriptures.
