Book Description

26 Jun 2003 052181815X 978-0521818155
This Dictionary provides students, pastors, and other readers of the Bible with a convenient and useful source of word meanings and English glosses for the entire vocabulary of the Greek New Testament. In addition to reflecting the full range of semantic uses and nuances with appropriate examples, according to the most recent lexical research, the Concise Dictionary includes the following features: identifying the part of speech, listing cognate key words, noting principal parts for each verb as used in the New Testament (giving the frequency of use in the New Testament), and citing the New Testament reference for each word used only once. The Dictionary also identifies enclitics, postpositives, and non-Greek words, and contains numerous cross references for irregular forms. It should prove to be an essential accompaniment to any course of NT Greek or serious study of the Bible in its original form.

Product Description

Review

'T's book is worth buying. One advantage is that the frequency list enable students to concentrate on learning the most common forms, rather than those that are less common, which they can then generally look up. Worth having in any library of a Divinity or Theology Faculty; worth having if you are using NT Greek in teaching.' JACT

'Available in paperback and hardback, this handy dictionary will be very useful for all those who want (or have) to work with the NT in the original language. Highly recommended!' International Review of Biblical Studies

'… an excellent contribution to this genre … Trenchard's dictionary should become a fixture in the classroom for many years to come.' Journal for the Study of the New Testament

By V. Cobb
Format:Paperback
A first class pocket-sized tool (but with good clear reasonably large type)for the student of NT Greek. It contains just about every possible English equivalent for the vast majority of Greek words to be found in the New Testament. I am enjoying just reading through it. It needs to be stressed for the benefit of prospective purchasers that this a Greek-English dictionary with no English-Greek section - something I ought to have noticed but in fact failed to take on board before purchasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Pleased With This So Far 29 Sep 2010
By KATN
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I haven't had this even a week yet but I though I'd share some initial thoughts.

When this book arrived through the post I was surprised at how slim it is, especially as it contains the entire NT vocabulary (it is exactly 1cm thick and 21.5cm long). The presentation is beautifully clean and clear and is great to read, unlike the more brutal type of my old Liddell and Scott lexicon (which I am by no means throwing away). This means, along with it's comparatively small size, that it is much easier and faster to look words up, thus speeding translation.

The above reviewer pointed out that this a Greek to English dictionary only. If you are not learning Greek, this will not be helpful.

I'm a second year theological student doing intermediate Greek and translating Mark. As someone who has to lug sometimes 10kg or more of books and lap top over a 2.5 mile walk to college and back every day, this slim (and therefore light!) volume has already brought considerable joy to my life!

Highly recommended, especially for undergraduates in their second year of NT Greek.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for use with Duff, bad at everything else. 24 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you have Duff's 'Elements of New Testament Greek' then you'll want this book until you become more advanced in your Greek. After you've achieved a higher level, a proper lexicon is essential. This serves its purpose; it is a good accompaniment to Duff. However you only get verb stems, rather than declensions, which can be a pain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value 14 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a sound work for the (near) beginner and allows a clear overview of different translation possibilities. Given the limited corpus of NT Greek it is not very big - about 180 double columned pages but I have not failed to find what I wanted using the companion CUP Introduction by Duff.
