Very Pleased With This So Far,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Concise Dictionary of New Testament Greek (Paperback)
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.
