I have not yet read the book. The book is for a class that starts in February. SO far I think the information will add a ton of value to my studies.

On April 9, 2011, a woman named Julie gave this version of Vine's Expository Dictionary a single star rating. Her Review Summary line reads: "Warning ~ THIS IS NOT THE ORIGINAL VINES." Julie then gave her reasons for believing the content of this version of Vine's Dictionary had been tampered with. Julie based her suspicion on a word-study she did on the word "SOZO, saved" (Strong's #4982). She wrote that an online version of Vine's Dictionary included the following definition of SOZO: "to keep safe & sound, to rescue from danger or destruction. To save a suffering one from perishing from disease. To make well, to heal. To restore to health." Yet, when she searched for this definition in the Vine's Dictionary she purchased from CBD, she couldn't find it.
Julie then wrote: "After doing a little research I found out that the original Vines had not been copyrighted. I looked in the Vines I had purchased and found it had been copyrighted in 1996. Apparently those who republished [sic] it took liberty upon themselves to remove part of the original meaning & then to [sic] copyright it. Who knows how many other things they have changed. I would not recommend [sic] this dictionary to anyone."
Unfortunately for Julie, she was mistaken. The definition of SOZO she had read online was not from Vine's Dictionary. Instead, it was an outline written by the authors of the website she was reading (www.blueletterbible.org) on how the various New Testament authors used the word SOZO.
Vine's Expository Dictionary is such a great resource for Bible students, I couldn't let Julie's mistake influence someone's consideration to purchase it.

No matter what age, you will enjoy this Bible dictionary. It is a great resource for all. I have bought two in the last month I am so impressed with it. It makes a great gift for anyone who studies the Bible and who needs a clear understanding of the vocabulary used in the scriptures. I highly recommend you buy one for yourself and another one to give away.

An outstanding study aid to better understand the precise meaning of words used in both Hebrew and Greek. The cross referencing to Strong's Concordance truly facilitates a better understanding of God's word.

This is the 3rd time I have purchased this product. The last two times it was supposedly better and updated. NOT SO!!! I was disappointed with the first one several years ago because it was so limited in its Hebrew/OT words, and was convinced by the advertising 3-4 years ago that it was updated. NOT SO!!! I now have basically 3 copies of the same book, even though printed 20+ years apart.

An excellent help to understand the Bible. Many words have been incorrectly translated in some versions of the Bible. This book will clarify those mistranslations.

We use this weekly in our studies and are seldom disappointed. The convenience of looking up the english word and finding the greek is great for those of us who want a simple tool. We use other greek tools as well but this one is always referred back to as well.

Vine's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words for me is second best to the Concordence. I've purchase several Bible dictionaries over the years and was not as pleased as I was after purchasing Vine's.

If you are looking to gain better understanding of Gods word through greater definition and understanding of the original language, this book will help. You do not need to be a Greek scholar to use this tool of knowledge, looking up words in English, being given the Greek used in the original text of scripture and a summery meaning in relation to it's use in the text along with variances of the word. With this book you will come to a greater knowledge of Gods word. I would have given 5 stars but their is one small misprint in the book under long suffering, Greek word Makrothumeo, in the Greek word one letter is missing in the middle of the word, if you study Greek you may notice it.

It does have the word in modern Bibles corrected for the word "church" as in today's Bibles instead of correctly being assembly or congregation. The word church is building in old friscan and other languages. See Strong's and Oxford dictionary for definition and source word for "church." So don't panic. Ekklesia is the Greek word. Too bad Bible translators today don't know the difference. Some old English Bibles did translate ekklesia correctly as congregation or assembly. looking forward to other words that got mistranslated. Check it out. Tyndale, Cranmer, Matthew/Tyndale and Young's literal translations.
Christian Books rocks. Their service A+

This is an excellent book that covers word meanings from both the Old and New Testements. It is easy to read, understand, and follow. The additional comments, cross-refernces, and passages help to bring the full meaning of the original word to scripture being studied. This is a must for serious diligent study and for anyone who desires a more in-depth relationship with the Word (God).
