The bizarre and fascinating story of Alexander Cruden, who single-handedly compiled the monumental dictionary/index/gazetteer to the Bible, Cruden’s Concordance - still going strong 260 years later.

Cruden's Concordance to the Bible was a monumental achievement; at 2.5 million words, it is four times the length of the bible itself.

Yet Alexander Cruden is remembered today not so much for his mighty work as for the widespread belief that he was mad.

Born in Scotland in 1699, Cruden spent much of his life in and out of asylums. Julia Keay uncovers the true, but no less tragic, story of his "madness".
