Item description for Expository Dictionary of Bible Words: Word Studies for Key English Bible Words Based on the Hebrew And Greek Texts by Stephen D. Renn...

This great reference tool also comes with a CD containing all the great tools that the Strong's CD has PLUS the full text of the Expository Dictionary. Everyone who studies the Bible wishes at some point that he or she knew the original Hebrew or Greek in order to better understand a difficult word or passage. TheExpository Dictionary of Bible Words gives readers the fruits of a working knowledge Hebrew and Greek without the years of language study. The Expository Dictionary of Bible Words is more than just a handy and thorough alphabetical guide to the English translation of the Hebrew and Greek words used in both Testaments. There are thousands of articles, all arranged alphabetically by English word and coded to Strong's numbering system for ease of use. Each article is divided into two sections - Old Testament (Hebrew) Words and New Testament (Greek) Words - with an entry for the Hebrew or Greek word along with its transliteration, translation, range of meaning(s), and comments on its use in different biblical contexts. A comprehensive system of cross-references aids the reader in finding different words as well as discussions of related words and themes. Although reference works like Vine's and Englishman's have long aided Christians in understanding the nuances of different biblical words, the Expository Dictionary of Bible Words surpasses all available reference works. The "Additional Notes" to articles throughout the volume provide valuable and insightful information on the connections between Old and New Testament words and themes. Packaged with the Expository Dictionary of Bible Words is a CD-ROM containing the complete text of the Expository Dictionary in several formats for PC and PDA.

Reviews - What do customers think about Expository Dictionary of Bible Words: Word Studies for Key English Bible Words Based on the Hebrew And Greek Texts?

Good, but not detailed enough.  Feb 10, 2008
This is a decent dictionary, but it's not as good as the complete word study dictionaries. I got it for $20 and it served me well for a while, but I really don't use it anymore as it is not a complete dictionary, and there were often a few words that I couldn't find in it. It's worth the extra money for a more scholastic dictionary.
Less than the basic...  Sep 28, 2007
This dictionary is poor indeed. To make it plain, Vine's dictionary may be simple enough to be used even by people not acquainted with the Biblical languages or the linguistic technical terms, but many times it offers enlightening information even to scholars. On the contrary, Renn's dictionary says less than the basic. To give an example, the very important article "Create" says nothing (!) about the use of "qanah" in the Old Testament. The same lemma, mentioning the word "ktizo" in the New Testament, says nothing about its background and its classical use. Just compare these articles with the ones of Vine, and you will understand what I mean. Hence, I would recommend this dictionary only to people who find even Vine's dictionary difficult to read.
Helpful Resource For Greek/Hebrew Studies  Sep 23, 2007
An easy-to-use expository dictionary. It is more modern than Vines, but I do not know how exhaustive it is compared to others. Good quality tho.

'enlightened' Gk photizo
Eph 1:18 'that the eyes of your enlightenment'
and Heb 6:4 'having once being enlightened'
: 'Contrary to the assertion of several interpreters, does not carry the sense of 'believed the gospel' or 'came to faith' in these or any of its 11 NT uses. It refers to learning and understanding, and therefore the most that can be confidently claimed for it is that it speaks of those who have heard and understood the gospel.'
Wayne Grudem, Still Sovereign, pg 141
excellent resource  Aug 3, 2007
I agree with the editorial review This book is better than Vines and other older books. You don't have to know Greek or Hebrew to use this book since the words are transliterated [spelled] into English.Very reasonably priced book. Highly recommended.
