Has anyone yet seen The Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament
by Danker, which will be available November 1? (Retail $55). Any
screenshots of pages so one can compare its entries with what BDAG has?
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.
