It's also a much easier and interesting read than TDNT, and more up to
date. Say, I just noticed who the translator is - this was translated by
James Ernest, who hangs out here on B-Greek! Perhaps he can comment further
on Spicq.

I also notice, courtesy of Amazon.com, that a certain James Ernest wrote a
book entitled "Contact Juggling". I wonder if it is the same person?
