'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)

The book is overall very good quality inside and out. It self-proclaims that it is MORE "accurate, up-to-date, complete numbering system, and user-friendly" than Vine's Complete Expository Dictionary. My review is mixed, even though overall I do like the book.

PROS:

1. Indeed, some of the entries are more up-to-date than Vine's. But you cannot really tell the difference. A simple lay person has to believe that it is up-to-date.

2. I do find OT entries more complete than the Vine's, but shorter in definition. It simply has more entries for OT words than Vine's book. And I find it useful.

3. Dictionaries at the back really helps. These dictionaries are not concordance dictionaries where you find them at the back of concordance. These dictionaries provide short but clear definitions for the word at hand. Truly handy.

4. Hardcover book is clean and tight. Pages are thin (like the pages of the Bible)... this could be either pro or con depends on your preference.

CONS:

1. Some NT entries are not necessarily better than Vine's in my opinion. Such terms as "envy" "godly, godliness" and OT entry "wisdom" are better explained in Vine's. Hence, some entries are better than Vine's but other entries, the Vine is clearly better.

2. Personally, I do not like the format of the book (but this is subjective judgment). Under the English entry, both Hebrew and Greek corresponding words are discussed. To me this is a bit inconvenient. I like the Vine's format better: having separate entries for Hebrew words and Greek words.

Overall, I do like the book and recommend it. But I suggest that you use the book with good old Vine's Expository Dictionary. For my studies, Vine is hard beat.

Format: Hardcover
The title says the dictionary is "Complete," and the cover blurbs call it "Vine's for the 21st Century," and say that compared to Vine's, Mounce's work is "More accurate," "More user-friendly," has "More up-to-date definitions" and a "More complete numbering system."

Undoubtedly these things are all true. It also features, in my opinion, a more readable layout, more contemporary and reader-friendly wording, and the fact that OT and NT words are not divided into entirely separate sections of the book is logical and convenient.

Finally, the inclusion of concise, "Strong's-like" lexicons at the end of the book is a nice touch.

The complaints:

Despite its claims of being "complete," it is most certainly not so. Only when closely examining the Introduction does one understand the curious inability to locate certain words: "It includes all Greek words occurring TEN times or more, all Hebrew words occurring FIFTY times or more, and other words occurring less if they are exegetically or theologically significant." (Emphasis added by reviewer.)

This makes sense if and only if concision is the overriding goal. After a bit of consideration, it is easy to realize that it is often those words LEAST used that are MOST in need of careful definition and exposition. This is a significant drawback, and in my opinion makes the title of the book misleading if not outrightly untruthful.

Involved in a debate about the Biblical teaching about homosexuality? Sorry, except for the very brief entry in the Strong's-type lexicon in the back of the book, you won't find any mention of "arsenokoites" in this tome.

In contrast to Vine, Mounce also seems to provide "exposition" that avoids some of the ongoing controversies in Christianity.

This seems to be a very good book. And that's too bad because I can't get to any of the words I want to look up because the kindle edition does not have an index at all. If I need to look up a word starting with the letter w, I literally have to press the page button about 800 times to finally get to the word I am looking for. I'm sure the actual physical book is great, but the fact that the kindle edition has no index makes this book completely useless; how am I supposed to navigate it? There is no way to select the word I'm looking up with no index. I was excited to buy it, but but with the lack of an index I cannot use this book. It just doesn't make any sense. A complete waste of 15 dollars.

Mounce advertises his dictionary as an updated replacement for Vines. My big respect for Mounce comes from using his learn NT greek course. Before that (and still) I relied heavily on Vines for definitions of greek NT words and found him more than excellent. The idea of Mounce updating Vines led me to buy 4 copies as gifts for friends.

Mounce's dictionary is like an abridged version of multi-volume International Dictionary of NT, handy for those people with no or middling greek knowledge.

Having used it for a few months my conclusions are:

- I'd recommend it

- It is a good dictionary

- It is tied to a modern numbering system

- Useful scripture index

- Modern multi-scholar content

- It is not as good as Vines - He was the sole author, you became familar with him - his character and godliness, he was very thorough almost exhaustive, he had 'spiritual' insight. Mounce lacks being exhaustive and seems bland in its definitions, almost afraid to be definite or lacking insight. The multiple authors of Mounce leaves me unable to get a feel for their belief and character.

I like having both dictionaries on my shelf. One makes up for the shortcomings of the other. I wouldn't be without both.
