Reviews - What do customers think about The Book Study Concordance?
Excellent tool. Feb 9, 2007
This is more of a correction to the previous reviewer's score of only one star based on the on the fact that this book gives no verb parsing or other grammatical help.
Does he not realise that this is a Concordance? It is not an Analytical Lexicon, which it seems he mistakes it for. Therefore it is not meant to give grammatical information of the kind he would like.
The book itself is of very good quality in terms of its physical materials. Sewn binding, very clear quality print and well set out.
A book by by book study of terms used can be of a great help to any exegete who wishes to study the vocabulary of a given writer for example. The NT writers often used the same term in a different way in the same letter or Gospel. This concordance gives enough line context to enable one to see how that term is used in any given NT writing. Kostenberger and Bouchoc have provided the NT student with a very helpful tool. Whilst it does not render the use of a standard Concordance superflous, it certainly gives an added usefulness and angle to concordance work.
Not a Good Buy Sep 14, 2006
I found this book to be slightly above useless. It doesn't really help with anything I can see, unless you really want to get details on word count by book. If you are into that get software. I wanted a concordance that would give me verb parsings and noun forms on difficult words during the course of a Bible-book study. This tome doesn't help with either. It is really just a large print-out of a computer search. I think Kostengerger could have made it a great one-stop-shop if he simple adds the declension and parsing information with each word form. But as it is its a no-stop-shop.
Excellent resource for deeper study Aug 12, 2005
If you have interest in the Greek New Testament the Book Study Concordance is a must have in your library. Breaking down Greek words BY BOOK is an excellent way to analyze the text and the word frequency lists for each book allow you to see keywords more easily. While a number of software packages can do this type of reporting this book is invaluable for quick reference.
