The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology (NIDNTT) saves me alot of space. I do not have room to hold the type of library I would love to have. Nor do I have an education in the Biblical languages. The NIDNTT allows me delve into the Greek through its subject index and it's Strongs-to-Goodrich-Kohlenberger indexs. I recommend this tool to every person involved in full time Christian ministry.

This volume is indispensable for doing my masters thesis. It is through and organized much better than the unabridged version.

So far (I've only used this resource for a week or so) it's been very helpful. It reviews Old and New Testament uses of the word, and it appears to be complete. Some of the entries lend toward the devotional (this is a plus in my opinion). It's very useful for someone who is not a student of Greek.

Very useful and effective tool for bible study, preaching, and teaching. It would be a good book for every Bible College student to have especially those studying biblical Greek as part of their degree program. It helps to clarify word usage and importance.

I find myself in complete agreement with the earlier review above by David Kilpatrick. In addition to what he wrote, I would include that those of us who do not have a very good grasp of NT Greek, will find that this book is very helpful.The depth it can add to your Bible study is enormous. Understanding the original meaning of the passage you are studying is the first step in being able to apply he text to our contemporary life and culture.

This is not a kiddie version of the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology (NIDNTT). Its the real thing. Its the best kept secret in biblical studies resources. In many respects, this is superior to the four-volume set (my assessment is based on owning the full NIDNTT set since 1980, and owning and routinely using TDNT, EDNT, and Spicqs TLNT). First, this is more well organized and easier to use. All Greek words are listed in Greek order, not under English words. This makes finding words a breeze. They've listed the other related words that were grouped together in the original NIDNTT at the end of the entry for comparisons. Second, they've included the Goodrick-Kohlenberger numbering system, which allows those who can't read Greek to more easily benefit from this book. Third, they retained all of the important stuff. The editors describe how they abridged, (see their introduction), but they left everything thats relevant. For example, they shortened it by deleting the extensive bibliographies after each entry, deleting the full-length articles on specific topics more in the category of systematic theology (e.g., articles like "Revelation in Contemporary Theology"), and when the information about Classical Greek had no relevance for the NT, it was cut, while the important information about Classical Greek was kept. They also shrunk the type (still plenty big), moved from a single to double column format, and increased the height and width of the book to make the book larger. The result is a book that has virtually all of the information in the full set in a cheaper, easier-to-use format.If you buy this, dont forget to also get Spicqs Theological Lexicon of the NT, and youll have the best and most efficient combination of sets of theological dictionaries for the NT (Spicq is only $55 here at CBD but a whopping $99 at Amazon). See my review of Spicq here at CBD.
