> Description: 
  > The Reader's Edition combines the Bible text of the latest edition

  > an Onpage Greek-English Dictionary, compiled by Barclay M. Newman.
  > 
  > Features 
  > * On-page Dictionary providing translations of all vocabulary items 
  > occurring 30 times or less in the New Testament at the bottom of each page 
  > * Translations given according to context 
  > * Definitions of idiomatic word combinations 
  > * Grammatical analysis of all difficult verb forms 
  > * Reader-friendly layout enabling the reader to transfer easily from 
  > text to dictionary and vice versa 
  > * An appendix providing translations of all vocabulary items

  > The font appears to be the same as the UBS 4 font, in italics. It also 
  > has the pericope headings from the UBS text. The footnotes give parsing 
  > information on verbal forms, lexical form, and a gloss; nouns and 
> adjectives have lexical form (nom sing.), gen sing, gender, and a gloss. 
  > In the case of idiomatic expressions, the gloss is given in parenthesis 
  > after the single word gloss.
  > 
  > The apparatus criticus is not included.
   
  This sounds like a suitable substitute for the out-of-print REFRESH YOUR GREEK by 
  Wesley J. Perschbacher, but without the Grammar and Syntax appendices.
