Item description for A Word for the Day: Key Words from the New Testament by J. D. Watson...

Overview
The purpose of this book is to share the richness of some of the Greek words used in the New Testament and help make them practical in the reader?s Christian living. Simply because words matter, the words of the New Testament matter most. And in a day when words don?t seem to mean much, the need for precision in Christian doctrine and practice has never been more critical.

Each day of the year a particular Greek word is examined by first presenting a brief word study and then offering an application to make that word real for practical living. For reinforcement, each day also includes other related verses for the reader?s personal study. In addition, each day?s devotional suggests a few prayer concerns to help apply the truth learned that day.

Doc Watson fulfills his desire of many years to provide daily devotionals that not only contain deep spiritual truth, but also are easy to read and understand. In our day of Relativism, the absolutes of God?s Word (and words) are desperately needed. These brief devotionals will enrich the mind, stir the soul, and empower the life of God?s people.

Reviews - What do customers think about Word For The Day?

A Word for the Day  Jan 9, 2007
Sooner or later in a Christian's sanctification, the desire to understand the original language of the Bible will at least pass through the mind. If you are anything like me, a junior grade codger who's last study of a second language was sophomore Latin class 49 years ago, it's an intimidating thought. I've heard for years now how rich and enlightening the Greek language of the New Testament is, and how difficult it is to translate it into pedestrian English when there is no word-for-word equivalence, but my desire for such enlightenment never overcame my sloth.

Dr. J.D. "Doc" Watson, pastor of Grace Bible Church in Meeker, Colorado, has solved my problem. That's "JD," in the literary tradition of Salinger, MacDonald and Wetterling.... His daily devotional is entitled, A Word for the Day, published by AMG Publishers. One new foreign language word a day is just the right pace for a three score and three-year-old mind. Doc has done a wonderful job explaining each word with scripture support and historical linguistic background in a single page per word per day. But you won't get the full effect unless you begin each reading by going to Crosswalk's New Testament Greek Lexicon "based on Thayer's and Smith's Bible Dictionary plus others," plugging in the Strong's number that Doc provides, and listening to it spoken correctly. As I replay the audio of the Greek word, I envision myself as a small boy sitting on the end of the dock beside a wizened old Greek fisherman as he repeats the words for me, complete with just the right degree of roll on the "r's." And I realize that most of the preachers I have heard doing Greek work studies as part of their sermon mangle the pronunciation. For example, when a true Greek pronounces Abba (Mark 14:36 et al), the accent is on the second syllable, not the first, and the modern idiom translation--"daddy"--is a bit hyperbolic. Hearing Greek spoken by a Greek is also an excellent memory device. I write Crosswalk's phonetic spelling of the word under Doc's title word on the page as a further aid to memory. Of course you could, without buying the book, just read the Greek definitions at Crosswalk, but the words will not come alive and become memorable--and God's amazing grace will not shine--the way they do with Doc's word study and application for practical living. I'm just loving this devotional.

In the interest of full disclosure, I have an endorsement in Doc's book, as if that is worth anything. It was solicited, but this review was not.

Little is lost by starting anywhere in the book. As the back cover says, "These brief devotionals will enrich the mind, stir the soul, and empower the life of God's people." Taste and see if you don't deepen your understanding of how blessed you are to be a kainos anthropos (2537, 444).
 
Learn Biblical Greek one-day-at-a-time  Dec 10, 2006
As a Christian I have always wanted to learn Greek so I can have a better understanding of God's Word from the language the New Testament was originally written in. However I don't have years of time to take college level courses to learn all the nuances of the language. J.D."Doc" Watson's book is the perfect way to learn Greek in "Baby Steps". His book is arranged in such a way that you learn a different Greek word each day of the year. Don't feel like you have to wait for January to start. Start today like I did. Each page has the date printed at the top. His descriptions are easy to understand and give practical ways to apply God's Word to daily life. Each day he gives you specific scriptures to find in your Bible further to enhance your study. I highly recommend this book for anyone who seeks to go deeper in your study of God's Word; from a new Christian to someone who has known the LORD for many years.
