> The Reader's Edition combines the Bible text of the latest edition
> of the UBS4 Greek New Testament, edited by Barbara Aland, et. al., with
> an Onpage Greek-English Dictionary, compiled by Barclay M. Newman.
> * 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
> occurring more than 30 times in the New Testament
> * Including the maps from the UBS Greek New Testament
> 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.
