Product Description

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.
