Customer Reviews for Inter-Varsity Press Pocket Dictionary for the Study of New Testament Greek

Inter-Varsity Press Pocket Dictionary for the Study of New Testament Greek

From ablative to zeugma, this dictionary it defines the tangled terms contained in Greek textbooks, grammars and lexicons. Here is the book to deliver you from late-night ponderings of the predicate and frantic fumings over the fricative. It is the indispensable lexicon to that third language that is neither Greek nor recognizable English: the technical vocabulary of grammarians, lexicographers, linguists and Greek instructors. What's more, this pocket dictionary gives you the inside edge on the terminology of exegesis, textual criticism and biblical criticism. Careful definitions, helpful examples and copious cross-references make this economically priced, brief dictionary easy to use. And its convenient size will make it a constant companion in your study of the Greek New Testament.

I originally thought the book was a Greek English Dictionary. Even though it is not, it is still a valuable resource.

I couldn't find anything at my local christian book store, and I was hesitant to order reference books online. This was exactly what I expected from the description, and just exactly what I was looking for.

The book was very good for a student or someone with more knowledge than I have. It was over my head.

This is one of the most helpful little tools I have in my library! What is a parechesis? How about that word you see throughout many commentaries, paraenesis? What is the Didache? Did you forget exactly what was the Hexapla? What does it mean when a commentator says that the construction of a given passage is anacoluthon? There is no need to skip over important issues in the books you like to read. Matthew DeMoss has provided a concise and cogent dictionary that will become your New Testament study companion. It is so handy when I draw a blank concerning various terms. This work defines over 1700 terms of grammer, word study, textual criticism, exegetical method and New Testament criticism. It is user-friendly for the informed layperson, student, pastor, teacher and expert.
