Frederick William Danker, a world-renowned scholar of "New Testament Greek", is widely acclaimed for his 2000 revision of Walter Bauer's "Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature". With more than a quarter of a million copies in print, it is considered the finest dictionary of its kind. Danker's "Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament" will prove to be similarly invaluable to ministers, seminarians, translators, and students of biblical Greek. Unlike other lexica of the "Greek New Testament", which give only brief glosses for headwords, "The Concise Greek-English Lexicon" offers extended definitions or explanations in idiomatic English for all Greek terms. An overarching aim of "The Concise Greek-English Lexicon" is to assist the reader in recognizing the broader linguistic and cultural contexts for New Testament usage of words. Each entry includes basic etymological information, short renderings, information on usage, and plentiful biblical references. And Greek terms that could have different English definitions, depending on context, are thoughtfully keyed to the appropriate passages. "The Concise Greek-English Lexicon" retains all the acclaimed features of "A Greek-English Lexicon" in a succinct and affordable handbook, perfect for specialists and nonspecialists alike.
"A standard reference for biblical scholars." - Publishers Weekly "This is a rare instance in which it may well be impossible to praise too highly either Danker or the volume that he has produced." - Michael W. Holmes, Religious Studies Review"
