Product Description

Product Description

Learn a Biblical Greek WORD Everyday.

The purpose of a Word of the Day is to share the richness of the Greek language used in the New Testament and help make these words practical in the reader's Christian living. Because words do matter, the words of the New Testament matter most. And in a day when words don't seem to mean much, the need for precision in Christian doctrine and practice has never been more critical.

For each day of the year, Watson presents a brief word study and then offers an application to make that particular Greek word become real for practical living. To aid reinforcement, related verses are listed for the reader's personal study.

Doc Watson fulfills his desire of many years to provide daily devotionals that not only contain deep spiritual truth, but also are easy to read and understand. In this day of relativism, the absolutes of God's Word (and words) are desperately needed. These brief devotionals will enrich the mind, stir the soul, and empower the life of God's people.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really useful and interesting book 29 Mar 2014
By Millsie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I already had this on my Kindle but wanted the printed book for extra study as I can then flick from chapter and page as needed. The knowledge of the original Greek meanings and nuances opens up the scriptures in a far more meaningful way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Learn a little Greek 31 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A painless way to learn a little New Testament Greek. A useful book for speakers and preacher's. Nothing too technical here but some good insights into many key New Testament words. I found the 'Scriptures to Study' section at the bottom of each page added something very worthwhile to the main daily readings. Overall, a very useful little book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Word for the Day 9 Jan 2007
By JD Wetterling - Published on
Sooner or later in a Christian's sanctification, the desire to understand the original language of the Bible will at least pass through the mind. If you are anything like me, a junior grade codger who's last study of a second language was sophomore Latin class 49 years ago, it's an intimidating thought. I've heard for years now how rich and enlightening the Greek language of the New Testament is, and how difficult it is to translate it into pedestrian English when there is no word-for-word equivalence, but my desire for such enlightenment never overcame my sloth.

Dr. J.D. "Doc" Watson, pastor of Grace Bible Church in Meeker, Colorado, has solved my problem. That's "JD," in the literary tradition of Salinger, MacDonald and Wetterling.... His daily devotional is entitled, A Word for the Day, published by AMG Publishers. One new foreign language word a day is just the right pace for a three score and three-year-old mind. Doc has done a wonderful job explaining each word with scripture support and historical linguistic background in a single page per word per day. But you won't get the full effect unless you begin each reading by going to Crosswalk's New Testament Greek Lexicon "based on Thayer's and Smith's Bible Dictionary plus others," plugging in the Strong's number that Doc provides, and listening to it spoken correctly. As I replay the audio of the Greek word, I envision myself as a small boy sitting on the end of the dock beside a wizened old Greek fisherman as he repeats the words for me, complete with just the right degree of roll on the "r's." And I realize that most of the preachers I have heard doing Greek work studies as part of their sermon mangle the pronunciation. For example, when a true Greek pronounces Abba (Mark 14:36 et al), the accent is on the second syllable, not the first, and the modern idiom translation--"daddy"--is a bit hyperbolic. Hearing Greek spoken by a Greek is also an excellent memory device. I write Crosswalk's phonetic spelling of the word under Doc's title word on the page as a further aid to memory. Of course you could, without buying the book, just read the Greek definitions at Crosswalk, but the words will not come alive and become memorable--and God's amazing grace will not shine--the way they do with Doc's word study and application for practical living. I'm just loving this devotional.

In the interest of full disclosure, I have an endorsement in Doc's book, as if that is worth anything. It was solicited, but this review was not.

Little is lost by starting anywhere in the book. As the back cover says, "These brief devotionals will enrich the mind, stir the soul, and empower the life of God's people." Taste and see if you don't deepen your understanding of how blessed you are to be a kainos anthropos (2537, 444).

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn Biblical Greek one-day-at-a-time 10 Dec 2006
By Patsy L. Bartley - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a Christian I have always wanted to learn Greek so I can have a better understanding of God's Word from the language the New Testament was originally written in. However I don't have years of time to take college level courses to learn all the nuances of the language. J.D."Doc" Watson's book is the perfect way to learn Greek in "Baby Steps". His book is arranged in such a way that you learn a different Greek word each day of the year. Don't feel like you have to wait for January to start. Start today like I did. Each page has the date printed at the top. His descriptions are easy to understand and give practical ways to apply God's Word to daily life. Each day he gives you specific scriptures to find in your Bible further to enhance your study. I highly recommend this book for anyone who seeks to go deeper in your study of God's Word; from a new Christian to someone who has known the LORD for many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT devotional book 2 Mar 2008
By J. Irvin - Published on
I have chosen 2 different devotional books to read every year for about 5 years now. I absolutely LOVE this book. I am a person who is very interested in the true meaning of Scripture and this book provides. I would like to see the author do a devotional book with the original Hebrew words and meaning. So, if you are the type of person that likes to get to the "meat" of the Bible, this book will not disappoint you!

A great book for the serious Greek and/or Bible student. Its one of the most used devotional book in my library. Gives explanation of the Greek words as well as offering Scriptures for continued study. A most inspirational and motivating work that has helped in my understanding of words in its original language. My preaching has taken on a new dimension!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very judgemental 22 July 2011
By Tom - Published on
The author has some great pages, but he is so judgmental. If you don't believe what he believes he put you down. Sorry I bought the book. I wish he would have done what title says and that's is to teach on a different word not put everything down he doesn't believe in. Stay away unless you believe in knocking other works.
