About "A Concise Dictionary of New Testament Greek"
This Dictionary provides students, pastors, and other readers of the Bible with a convenient and useful source of word meanings and English glosses for the entire vocabulary of the Greek New Testament. In addition to reflecting the full range of semantic uses and nuances with appropriate examples, according to the most recent lexical research, the Concise Dictionary includes the following features* identifying the part of speech, listing cognate key words, noting principal parts for each verb as used in the New Testament (giving the frequency of use in the New Testament), and citing the New Testament reference for each word used only once. The Dictionary also identifies enclitics, postpositives, and non-Greek words, and contains numerous cross references for irregular forms. It should prove to be an essential accompaniment to any course of NT Greek or serious study of the Bible in its original form.

There are a good many hand(y) lexica addressing New Testament Greek that are worth owning; unfortunately, this is not one of them! Dr Trenchard based this work on Dr Harold Greenlee's, "New Testament Morpheme Lexicon", which was itself based on the 1843 abridgement of Liddel-Scott's, "Greek-English Lexicon". This much earlier work is notorious for being completely unreliable regarding the etymologies it ascribes to the various words! So unreliable was it that it went through several exhaustive corrections and subsequent printings. Although it also suffers from certain failings, a much better choice to fill this niche is Dr Fred Danker's, "The Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament".
