'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
This Dictionary provides students, pastors, and others with a convenient and useful source of word meanings and English glosses for the entire vocabulary of the Greek New Testament, and is an essential accompaniment to any course of NT Greek or serious study of the Bible in its original form.See all Product description

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.
Green's alphabetic section runs to 216 densely printed pages. Trenchard's is printed larger and more legibly but has only 178 pages, less 14 blanks. That correctly suggests that there is less content in Trenchard. Trenchard helpfully shows the number of occurrences of each word, but he only gives verse references when the word occurs just once in the NT. In contrast, Green gives verse references in every entry. When words have multiple senses, Green's approach is incomparably more helpful. Take a really hard case, the word "logos": Green lists over 20 senses, giving verse references for each, whereas Trenchard gives even more possible renderings but not a single verse reference. What use is the latter approach for a serious student of the NT?
Apart from legibility, I struggle to find a single reason for buying Trenchard's book. I am not retiring Green, because I can't. Green is readily available on the second-hand market at a fraction of the price, and has been reprinted repeatedly, even quite recently. Draw your own conclusions.
