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.
