Just heard about this hitting paper in november:
The Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament. You can pre-order for $55 to be shipped sometime around november.

Basically an updated, mini-BDAG! I would LOVE to see this in Accordance and I know how long it will take! ANY feedback regarding at least interest would be nice to know.

Here's the description from the site:

Frederick William Danker, a world-renowned scholar of New Testament Greek, is widely acclaimed for his 2000 revision of Walter Bauerís 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.

Dankerís 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.


Thanks,

Mike

I think this would be an awesome addition. I currently have the Shorter Lexicon of the Greek NT by Gingrich & Danker in paper and love it. The Concise Dictionary sounds similar.

Err... what is the benefit of a concise lexicon in electronic form? Your computer doesn't get smaller and lighter.

I would think, 1) price and 2) those of us who aren't Greek Scholars, but would still like a good (enough) gloss. While I want BDAG and HALOT, $200+ for dictionary (ahem, sorry lexicons) is a tad much (for my budget).

I'd personally like it. Just my $0.02.

And actually, I like "lighter" in terms of less stuff, higher quality, or less information to allow me to access and use that information instead of having "more" in terms of stuff I won't use.

I want to encourage Accordance to acquire this module. When I was with a former Bible Software program four years ago, it was the concise BDAG that I used for my popup window! I miss that substantive short lexicon. I would love to be able to have The Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament as my popup lexicon for Accordance.

Remember that this book isn't even published yet, so it will inevitably be a long while before we can release it in Accordance.

Helen,
Has there been any update on the status of this book being available for Accordance? It's been in print form for a few years now. It does bring benefits to it which BDAG doesn't have (particularly meaning-phrases rather than single word glosses).

thanks,

We are working on so much, and there hasn't been a demand for this, so I don't think we are pursuing it at present.
