Reviews - What do customers think about New Living Translation Complete Concordance?
It is a great concordance for the NLT Nov 8, 2002
Oh beloved, this is THE concordance to get if you are a fan of the NLT. Come to think of it, it is the only one available. :-)
It is complete--indexing every word in the NLT. And the print is easy to read being set in a very readable font. The editors did themselves proud by being meticulous with this work. Only thing missing is a dictionary of Greek and Hebrew words. Maybe in the next edition?
If you are serious about studying in the NLT, then you need this reference work.
Maketh thee haste and gettest thou to a bookstore at once. Or add it to your shopping cart!
From the Co-Editor Aug 9, 2001
Just to clarify, James A Swanson is the co-editor of this book along with John, not a contributor.
The value of this book is to find any word in the specific version of the New Living Translation (forward, NLT); indexed alphabetically with a book, chapter, verse, and brief context line. It is at least, a sophisticated verse finder to every word in the NLT. The context-line feature is true of all words except a quite limited list of structural-marker words that have meaning in the relationship between words or to what they refer: "the, he, it, at, having, et cetera." This is common among all concordances, even "exhaustive" types.
Given the dynamic (functional equivilent) nature of the NLT translation, the best use as a verse finder is for concrete nouns (John, Jude, God, Jesus, etc.), though it has quite advanced features for the advanced Bible student or even Bible teacher, since ALL THE FOOTNOTES ARE ALSO INDEXED. Look up the word "Hebrew, Greek, manuscript(s), masoretic, [Samaritan] Petateuch, etc" under the footnotes, and you will find virtually every single instance of alternate text readings, alternate or literal renderings of a given word or phrase. This advanced feature alone makes it a useful tool for the English Bible Reader/student.
This kind of concordance is a great first step to implimenting the NLT as a study version, and work is currently being done for more advanced concordances in the future. May you drink deep from the well-spring of eternally valuable knowledge!
Bum Scoop Jul 6, 2001
In my review below, where I explained the arrangement of the concordance, I provided some incorrect information.
The NLT concordance does NOT key the English words to their respective Greek or Hebrew words which they translate. This is probably because the NLT sought to communicate the meaning of entire thoughts and did not focus on word-for-word correspondance in translation. This would naturally make an English-Greek or English-Hebrew word index more difficult.
The concordance does provide an alphabetical index of every, single English word which appears in the NLT, and lists the references where they occur.
Not a Commentary Dec 9, 2000
The previous review praised this work as a great commentary. This is not a commentary!
This volume is a concordance which is nothing more than an index of words used in the New Living Translation (NLT). Because it is a "complete" concordance, every word that appears in the NLT is listed alphabetically. Every reference where that word appears is listed, along with a brief section of the passage and a Greek or Hebrew key number. These numbers provide the user with the Greek or Hebrew word which was translated by that particular English word. The Greek or Hebrew word is discovered by looking up that number in the Hebrew and Greek index in the back of the concordance. This index lists all biblical Greek and Hebrew words arranged in numerical order (according to the assigned key numbers). The Greek or Hebrew word is given followed by a list of the different English words which were used to translate that particular Greek or Hebrew word throughout the NLT.
A required reference tool if your preferred Bible version for reading and study is the NLT. If you use another version, Complete (or Exhaustive) Concordances have also been published for the KJV, NKJV, NIV, NASB, and NASB95.
The editors have produced many excellent biblical word study tools for English, Greek and Hebrew.
