Zondervan Mounce's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words - eBook

For years, Vine's Expository Dictionary has been the standard word study tool for pastors and laypeople. However, the years of scholarship since Vine's was published have shed extensive new light on the use of biblical Greek and Hebrew, creating the need for a new, more accurate dictionary of Bible words. This new expository dictionary, edited by William Mounce, is ideal for those with little or no knowledge of Greek or Hebrew who want greater insight into the meaning of biblical words to enhance their Bible study. It is also the perfect reference for busy pastors needing to quickly get at the heart of a word's meaning without wading through more technical studies. This dictionary:
  • contains accurate, in-depth definitions based on the best of modern evangelical scholarship
  • is keyed to several translations, ranging from the KJV to present-day translations
  • each English entry discusses both Old Testament (Hebrew) and New Testament (Greek) words (as applicable)
  • uses both Strong's and G/K numbering systems. The G/K numbers ties in Mounce's Expository Dictionary with many of the best study tools.

For the price, this is by far the best dictionary for Biblical Greek and Hebrew out there. Its English to Greek or Hebrew is invaluable.

This is an unbiased dictionary that uses the correct meaning of words and am also ordering the books for learning Greek by this author. Helped me greatly without having to refer to a bunch of different references to try to get the true non ecclesiastic meaning for some of the English translations. Ex. church- definition from Oxford is building. This word is not in the Greek texts. Ekklessia is the Greek word which means the assembly or congregation. It is the believers not a building that is important. One don't go to church he is the body of believers where ever they go. Great service from Christian book also.

My first criticism is the book is printed on paper that is too then. Second, it should be more exhaustive in scope.
What I like about it:
It is keyed to the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology Abridged edition (NIDNTT-A) which is a bargain at $20.

I like the layout of the book. If you look up one word, it will list the rest of the greek and hebrew words under the same heading so it's easier to compare. But it doesn't have some words. Like "bosom". I don't know why..but I really wanted to look that word up.

This work does not address some issues of interest to me as well as the updated "Vine's" does. Also, the updated "Vine's" has coverage of the NASB, amng other things, where this seems to be exclusively focused on the 1984 NIV. While, in my view, the 1984 is better than the 2011, it is good to not be entirely dependent on any one translation, especially where there is the "dynamic equivalency" philosophy of even the 84 NIV. (Of coure, to some extent any translation from one language to another must employ some of the "D.E." approach, but some things are lost when this is employed too freely, usually by translators or "smoothers" of the translation who don't understand what it is they're obscuring.

After reading the reviews I thought I'd take a chance and buy this over Vine's because it's more updated than Vine's and I think I will grow into it as I continue my studies towards holy orders.

I agree with the publisher that Dr. Mounce is the modern day Vine's. If you don't have you need to get it all the things that you wish Vine's was he (Mounce) fills in.

This dictionary is a wonderful tool for anyone wishing to study the Bible. It is easy to use and you don't have to be a Hebrew or Greek student to use it. Knowledge of the Word in the original languages helps to delve deeper into our study of God's revelation and this dictionary opens up that ancient world to us. Highly recommended.

This will never replace my Vine's Dictionary! sadly, it is very incomplete. It is, however, occasionally helpful.

A good dictionary for the price. Bear in mind that an expository dictionary is based on what the author(s) thinks the word means theologically. Ones theological beliefs are used in defining words. For example, salvation may be defined in a way that adds works to grace through faith. Therefore, one dictionary, including this one, must not be the only source you consult when trying to obtain your range of meanings for a word. Word studies must be tempered with a proper understanding of systematic theology. That being said, this is a good purchase for those needing a basic expository dictionary.

This book is easy to use whether you know Greek and Hebrew or just English. There is not so much information that you get bogged down, but there is enough very good information to answer most questions. If you wish you had a way to check it out when you hear, "Now in the Greek (Hebrew) what it really says is...", then this book is for you.
