Overview
If you are beginning your study of New Testament Greek or Greek exegesis, this book is for you! From ablative to zeugma, it defines the tangled terms that infest Greek textbooks, grammars and lexicons. Here is the book to deliver you from late-night ponderings of the predicate and frantic fumings over the fricative. It is the indispensable lexicon to that third language that is neither Greek nor recognizable English: the technical vocabulary of grammarians, lexicographers, linguists and Greek instructors. What's more, this pocket dictionary gives you the inside edge on the terminology of exegesis, textual criticism and biblical criticism. Careful definitions, helpful examples and copious cross-references make this economically priced, brief dictionary easy to use. And its convenient size will make it a constant companion in your study of the Greek New Testament.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pocket Dictionary for the Study of New Testament Greek?

An Awesome "Must-Have" Resource That's Inexpensive Too!  Jan 12, 2007
I have recently purchased this book, and it has already paid for itself!

I am a 1st year seminary student that has been exposed to about 4 years of Greek. I attend the church where the seminary Professor's Pastor and teach. I have also known many seminary students and graduates for the same reason.

Over the last 4 years, despite the attempts of Professor's, students, and Summer's Beginning Grammar, I have been unable to fully comprehend certain terms or concepts dealing with Greek grammar. One such example, is the "distance from reality" of certain moods.

For the first time in close to 5 years, I have a grasp of several concepts that have eluded me. This is thanks solely to this awesome little book, "Pocket Dictionary For the Study of New Testament Greek." I have found the definitions to be crisp and clear, and highly illuminating. Its as though I finally have an author that writes on the same frequency that I learn on!

I also discovered today in class that the Greek Professor owns a copy as well. He has over two decades of experience teaching Greek. For the first time, he found a definition for a verb composition that has eluded him for years. He discovered it in this same book.

A brief perusal of "Pocket Dictionary For the Study of New Testament Greek" has already shown me that I am in for quite a treat. This book has virtually opened up a whole new world of terms to me, some of which go beyond Greek, into areas like "Textual Criticism."

I typically am not one for writing reviews. But there may be others reading this, that are like me. I am clear that it is God's will for me to master Greek. But while I appreciate Summer's, Mounce, Wallace, Dana & Mantey, and the plethora of other grammars out there... their definitions sometimes leave me in the dark.

Maybe I will one day join the ranks of "grammarians" that writes a grammar with the intent of simplifying the process of learning Greek from square one. But for now, I am happy to get any tool that will help me to climb this mountain.

"Pocket Dictionary For the Study of New Testament Greek" is obviously not a grammar, but I think that it can sure help to lighten the load for Seminarians, Bible College students, or anyone that is committed to learning New Testament Greek, and the requisite grammatical terms, definitions, etc.

I can also see how it would be a very helpful tool for Pastor's and Preachers that are presently tackling Greek, or for those that are not yet full-blown Scholars with photographic memories!
 
A small, but fundametal tool for newcomers  Dec 8, 2006
If you are entering for the first time the area, and you do not attend a bible college or the like, you just NEED such small, simple, cheap, but fundamental tools. Extremely useful and you will rapidly get acquainted with the technical jargon of the trade. Have it!
 
Not a Greek Dictionary  Sep 22, 2006
First, a word of caution: This is NOT a Greek dictionary. I ordered it thinking that it was a dictionary of New Testament Greek words; but that's not what it is. It is actually a dictionary of terminology used in the study of New Testament Greek. In other words, it is a dictionary of technical terms from the fields of linguistics, textual criticism, and exegesical method. Fortunately, this dictionary makes a useful addition to the linguistics section of my library. I've only glanced through it a few times; but it appears to be a good reference work for students of linguistics and textual criticism. But it's not what I was looking for when I bought it. If you're looking for a Greek dictionary; look elsewhere.
 
Great for Preachers too!  Dec 9, 2001
The publicity for this book says it is essential for students of NT Greek. I agree, but I also have found this to be an invaluable resource even though it is almost 30 years since I studied Greek in the classroom. When we read commentaries and other books in biblical studies we sometimes encounter words which we do not understand. When we are teaching or preaching we want to express something about the original text which we need to be sure about. For such purposes this book is ideal. It does not go into elaborate discussions, and the conciseness of its definitions suits the busy lifestyles of the present-day expositor of the Word. I recommend it highly for students and ministers of the Word.
