This is not as useful as Pershbacher's revised and updated NT Greek lexicon by Robinson and House. I will continue to use Mounce's also because of the other valuable reference and language resources he provides. The usefulness of an analytical lexicon is ease of use, identifying all forms of words found with reference to their lexical entry. Defining terms is secondary and BDAG 3rd ed. or Danker's concise Greek-English Lexicon are recommended for NT Greek students providing the semantic range words. BDAG is the standard used by the vast majority of students and scholars but it can't take the place of an analytical lexicon.
I am taking a Greek class at my church. i are just learning so that I can prepare in different ways for teaching. I am not able to memorize the vocabulary words that I am supposed to learn, so this Lexicon is invaluable for helping me find and identify words.
I really found this product extremely useful in my study of the Greek. The definitions are clear and precise as well as the analysis of each word as to how it is used in the GNT. I highly recommend this book to any serious student of the Greek. CBD is also the best source of Christian books I know of and highly recommend anyone to make their purchases of Christian materials here.
I like having the lexical forms printed in bold and keyed to Mounce's Morphology. But Mounce's Analytical Lex has too many inadequacies. Above all, cognates are not listed under the word from which the family was derived. Second, I seldom see compounds split into their simplex words, with definitions of uncommon simplex words. Such things are extremely helpful and necessary. The principle parts of verbs are also listed in a format which is too concise, especially since the last principle parts can vary from middle to passive forms. It is better to show the abbreviated name of each principle part in front of it (e.g., "aor 2 mid, ..."). Mounce also does not provide forms of words in variant readings. Therefore, since Moulton's Analytical Lex has all these very important features which are missing in Mounce's, I still recommend Moulton's.
