useful but not necessary Aug 20, 2005
I was somewhat disappointed in this book, but I should have read more closely what it contains. Basically, it is the dictionary part of Strong's concordance and an abbreviated Vine's dictionary combined. There is an English word index in the front where you can look up a KJV word. There you will see all the Hebrew or Greek transliterations for all the meanings of that word in those languages, a three or four word English definition with the Strong's corresponding number, and the number of times that particular Greek or Hebrew word is used in the KJV. However, this is not a concordance, and it will not tell you what verse goes with whatever variation of the word you are seeking. If you already know the verse and which variation listed in the English word index is the definition you seek, you can go directly to it in the back of the book, but otherwise you would have to look the verse up in Strongs concordance and get the corresponding Strongs number.
The definitions in the back are very good, consisting of a combination of Strong's dictionary definitions and a condensed version of Vine's dictionary definitions. You see ONLY the definition for that one particular number you seek, not a listing of all the numbers corresponding to that particular English word like you do in Vines, and you dont have to scan through paragraphs of definitions to find the one corresponding to your number.
The book is attractively laid out, although I would like to see the Strong's numbers bolded to stand out better. The binding is glued with an attractive cover. The pages are thin. Very typical of other mass produced books today.
In summary, If you have Strong's condcordance and Vine's dictionary already, you basically have this book. The advantage it does offer is a concise combination of both those book's dictionary definitions on a one page format, so you wont have to flip to the back in Strongs and then open Vine's, being a little more convenient, but more abbreviated. I actually like this better, as I find Vine's to be a little too much some times and harder to find the precise meaning of the specific word I want.
As I said this is useful, convenient and perhaps a little more direct, but not necessary if you already have Strong's and Vine's.
