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.

In Christ,

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.

I would have liked to have it. See: http://www.accordanc...ge=4#entry42676


Please SEE THIS recent LINK about Bible versions: https://www.christia...curate.7926578/ ... I use Confraternity Version a lot (both OT and NT). Exceptions/changes: Beck 1976 for GJn 8:32, 2004 GNT 3rd Ed. UK-English for Dt, NIV11-GKE for Isa also as a print journaling Bible; and I've added NIV78UK to regular use as well as NASB71 and 72 - these largely instead o the NIV84, RSV and NASB77. Additional versions I now both have and use: 1958 Westminster Version, 1985 NJB (two copies of which I like the older typesetting), 1970 NEB (in a four version parallel Bible), 1989 REB (beater HCs and white leather). (I recommend also a FB group for The Real Douay-Rheims 1610/1582 (purchasable from lulu.com))
NPP and English translations and commentaries as well as as a bit about learning the original languages: https://www.christia...posts/72219172/
Commentaries I both have and recommend as I don't regret my purchases - for the most part unspecified regarding which platform: https://community.lo...795.aspx#830795
I think the best Accordance base is to buy HALOT (and BDAG) used, and then upgrade to Hebrew Pro. I have never bought a Collection with actual content but am holding on to the working configuration I have so far and am going to buy version 13 Hebrew Pro. /decided on Apr. 6. 2018:
acchebrewpro.without.versionnumber.jpg
I'm growing only my Accordance and print libraries (EDIT March 28. 2018: I now really have quit altogether placing new orders elsewhere) and printed matter nowadays only through the sites biblio and alibris. In fact I occasionally duplicate things, depending on price. I don't buy Collections/base-packages at all, to me an OK print library is a Collection/base-package and is bragging-rights, a mid-size Collection would not be!! I have the Urantia Book now, rebound in leather and would read it together with someone. Books copyrighted in the most recent Years (2011 and later) have to be truly exceptional for me to buy them - this is a strategy I'm going to stick to - I do buy newer books but they are among the expensive purchases. I very rarely have to add any lexicons or Bible Dictionaries, I access them wherever, under Accordance I have bought HALOT and BDAG used and am subscribing to the DCH in print revised Edition. Otherwise I prefer BAGD actually which I have under L6.9. The best One-Volume Bible commentary is Oxford Bible Commentary.
NAB70 OT and L6 functionality including Chineze (which I don't speak/read) under spare account.
The Oxford Bible Commentary under other one pretty large current account that is the one I actually use. /Oct. 16. 2017 Edited Jan. 14. 2018. 

yesterday was 2 years since I returned from an archaeological trip to Turkey. /Apr 16. 2016 A bit of interest in Akkadian or Babylonian. /Apr. 2016
The toughest computer I have is: 8GB W7 i3 3110m 3rd gen Ivy Bridge (since it's W7 Professional and huge battery that actually can be gripped while carrying it open + a second "slice" battery) - on which I have Accordance 10, 1TB SSD of which only a small fraction is filled. | Until 1¬Ĺ Years ago I had: 8GB W10 AMD FX-7600P (since it's AMD:s best laptop CPU - I LOVE and recommend only AMD). Now I have a new 12 GB laptop with a Q2 2017 AMD CPU equipped with single thread rating 1400 http://cykeltaxi.se/...re.i3-3110M.pdf
 My desktop has the excellent value for money G2030 CPU Ivy Bridge - it's the one on which I have Accordance 12 Starter installed, suitable amount of RAM. /March 28. 2018

Any update on Danker's Concise Greek-English Lexicon? Would love to see it in Accordance!
