Overview

Frederick William Danker, a world-renowned scholar of New Testament Greek, is widely acclaimed for his 2000 revision of Walter Bauer’s A 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.

Each entry includes basic etymological information, short renderings, information on usage, and plentiful biblical references. Greek terms that could have different English definitions, depending on context, are thoughtfully keyed to the appropriate passages. An overarching aim of The Concise Greek-English Lexicon is to assist the reader in recognizing the broad linguistic and cultural context for New Testament usage of words.

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.

Editorial Reviews

Choice

“Danker (emer., Lutheran School of Theology) has been widely acclaimed as the editor of A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature (3rd ed., 2000), a revision of an earlier work by Walter Bauer. This new volume can only enhance Danker's renown in the academic world. Greek professors and students will be grateful for this volume, which incorporates all the features of a lexicon in a succinct handbook. Its size makes it appropriate for daily classroom use. The preface provides a splendid overview of the new directions Danker takes with this lexicon. Rather than presenting brief glosses for headwords, as other Greek New Testament lexica do, this volume provides extended definitions in idiomatic English for many Greek terms. Danker encourages users to formulate alternative renderings while keeping the extended definition as the governing agent. Irregular verb forms listed in bold type as headwords are especially useful for students. Entries include the headword, brief etymological data, extended definitions, short renderings, usage in specific passages, and an abundance of scriptural references. Organization of the data gives users easy access to rich resources. Skilled design in the page layout has resulted in an attractive, aesthetically pleasing, user-friendly volume. This lexicon will take its place alongside other standard Greek reference works. . . . Highly recommended.”
