Reviews - What do customers think about A Manual Greek Lexicon of the New Testatment?

An old favorite  Feb 12, 2008
For many years, I had resisted purchasing a copy of Bauer, et al's mammoth (7 ¾" x 10 ¼" x 2 ¼")Lexicon of the Greek New Testament. Yes, it had a great deal of data. Yes, it shared insights from contemporary literature which shed light on word meaning for words used rarely in the New Testament. However, it was an absolute pain. The layout made it difficult to find what was needed, and it seemed quite easy to lose the forest for the trees in Bauer's 1st and 2nd English editions. Frankly, I preferred George Abbott-Smith's Manual Lexicon, and availed myself of Bauer at the seminary library only as needed. Now the available choices have changed, and for the better.

Bauer's 3rd English edition is a marvel. Everything the other reviewers write about its clear typeface, and intelligent use of bolding and spacing is true: it's a joy to use. A bit heavy, but it's worth it. The actual definitions as opposed to glosses are also a plus. All of this combined means that all of the data produced by scholarship is far more useable. Thank you, University of Chicago! I was willing to shell out the not insubstantial price for it, and have no remorse, it was money well spent.

Have I kicked Abbott-Smith to the curb? No. His Manual Lexicon is older (1937), but still makes use of the bulk of the papyri discoveries. He provides a quick reference for the Hebrew words underlying the Greek when that word is used in both the New Testament and the Septuagint (LXX) translation of the Hebrew Scriptures. He also provides numerous though not exhaustive Scripture references for each entry, making this lexicon reasonably functional as a concordance. With all this, I can still tote around Abbott-Smith (8 ¾" x 5 ¾" x 1 ¼") in my bag. It has yielded pride of place in my study, but for now at least, it's still a keeper.

Bauer: 5 stars
Abbott-Smith: 4 stars
A Classic!  Mar 16, 2007
This volume makes a valiant effort of treating the Greek while at the same time pointing to the Hebrew. I love this approach; so Stephen Renn and Bill Mounce has both utilize this historic approach. But kudoes for Abbott-Smith! Still useful!
This is the ultimate reference book that should be in every New Testament Greek scholar's library. It is unique in that it gives the Hebrew equivalents of the Greek words. Other lexicons, such as Thayer's and Perschbacher's, do not compare with the scholarship of this book. The proof of this is that it has been reprinted over the past century. I highly recommend this book.
The most usable and dependable of the lexicons  Dec 9, 2000
There is no point in repeating what the other reviewers of this excellent work have said. I would emphasize that it constitutes an excellent concordance . . . and is the only lexicon I know of that mentions the relation of energeia to dynamis . . . ignorance of which causes the NT energy words to be mistranslated in English versions of the NT. The Greek words should be rendered as "energy, energize, energetic" and be understood as the realization or actualization of a paired dynamis "potential power."
Greek Lexicon review  Jan 29, 2000
This is one of the best lexicons for understanding glosses from a Biblical theology standpoint and from a reasonable etymological standpoint
