For years, Vine's Expository Dictionary has been the standard word study tool for pastors and laypeople. However, the years of scholarship since Vine's was published have shed extensive new light on the use of biblical Greek and Hebrew, creating the need for a new, more accurate dictionary of Bible words. This new expository dictionary, edited by William Mounce, is ideal for those with little or no knowledge of Greek or Hebrew who want greater insight into the meaning of biblical words to enhance their Bible study. It is also the perfect reference for busy pastors needing to quickly get at the heart of a word's meaning without wading through more technical studies. This dictionary:
contains accurate, in-depth definitions based on the best of modern evangelical scholarship
is keyed to several translations, ranging from the KJV to present-day translations
each English entry discusses both Old Testament (Hebrew) and New Testament (Greek) words (as applicable)
uses both Strong's and G/K numbering systems. The G/K numbers ties in Mounce's Expository Dictionary with many of the best study tools.

For years, Vine's Expository Dictionary has been the standard word study tool for pastors and laypeople, selling millions of copies. But sixty-plus years of scholarship have shed extensive new light on the use of biblical Greek and Hebrew, creating the need for a new, more accurate, more thorough dictionary of Bible words. William Mounce, whose Greek grammar has been used by more than 100,000 college and seminary students, is the editor of this new dictionary, which will become the layperson's gold standard for biblical word studies. Mounce's is ideal for the reader with limited or no knowledge of Greek or Hebrew who wants greater insight into the meanings of biblical words to enhance Bible study. It is also the perfect reference for busy pastors needing to quickly get at the heart of a word's meaning without wading through more technical studies. What makes Mounce's superior to Vine's? - The most accurate, in-depth definitions based on the best of modern evangelical scholarship - Both Greek and Hebrew words are found under each English entry (Vine's separates them) - Employs both Strong's and G/K numbering systems (Vine's only uses Strong's) - Mounce's accuracy is endorsed by leading scholars

'5 stars!....Ideal for church leaders who want to do careful, word-by-word Bible studies but have never learned Greek or Hebrew. You'll be able to look up terms in English, find their Greek or Hebrew equivalents, and get added insight into what the word really meant in its original context. -- Rick Warren's Ministry Toolbox
