There have been several words I couldn't find in this Dictionary. I think it would be wise to have another to use with this one. I do like the way it is setup, it does not seperate the OT and NT words into different parts of the book.
Says keyed to several translations, but is mainly for NIV.Says uses both Strong's and G/K, but if you don't know the G/K number, you wont find the word in the dictionary part.I use the Strong's and KJV, and is a bit hard to find the right reference for the right word.All in all is an ok book.
This is my first time hearing about Mounce. This is also my first book by him. This is a great dictionary along with "Expository Dictionary of Bible Words" by Stephen D. Renn, published by Hendrickson Publishers. The Hendrickson "Expository" is keyed to the KJV, whereas "Mounce's" ranges from different translations: present-day and the KJV. There is a great thorough article about knowing how to to word studies. I read the whole article. It's my first time doing word studies like this. It's my first time doing word studies at all! The only thing about using Mounce and the Hendrickson one is that Hendrickson uses Strong's numbers while Mounce uses both Strong's and GK (Goodrick-Kohlenberger), but uses GK the most in the word studies article and introduction. The Hebrew-English and Greek-English dictionaries at the back of the book use GK numbers, having the Strong's numbers in brackets at the end of each entry. There's also a Scripture index to show where certain verses in the Bible are mentioned and explained in the book.
