Review

'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)

Customer Reviews

Mounce does an excellent job of defining sords from the Old and New Testaments.
Weldon Sellers
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?
kevin121
We must still look to our more accurate translations, and use a book such as this one as a tool for understanding.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.

21 of 21 people found the following review helpful By John Matlock on December 13, 2006
Format: Hardcover
Widely billed as the new Vine's for the 21st century, this book does have several advantages, perhaps the most prominent of which is that it is simply different.

My own opinion is that anyone interested in seriously needing any dictionary of the Old and New Testament words needs both books. Neither of them is very expensive, and if you're looking at a particularily difficult translation, you just might want to look at both. Often two wordings of essentially the same definition of a word just might explain things a bit differently. (If they weren't different, there would be no need for a second dictionary.)

One claim being made is that Mounce is more user friendly than Vine. Probably true if you are not already familiar with Vine's system. But if you've been using Vine's for years, you know it and how to use it, while you have to learn Mounce's.

All in all, I find it impossible to say one is better than the other. Sometimes I like Vines, sometimes Mounce's. Get Both.

35 of 38 people found the following review helpful By Dr. T. Irvine on December 20, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I agree with the previous reviewers. There are several weaknesses in the layout and the dictionary itself. Example: on page 783, the author discusses the Greek word for weep (Klaio) and his explanation and examples totally ignores one of the most well known times when Jesus wept (John 11:35) which is the verb dakryo. This verb is listed on page 1115 - in the Greek! Not much good for those who haven't studied Greek before. There are several times this happens. The word 'contend' (e.g. used in Jude 3) and receives only one reference in Mounce (Diakrino); in Vine's it receives 3 references (athleo, diakrino & epagonizomai - the actual Greek word used in Jude!) My advice as a language teacher - Vine's should be your first stop - then Mounce's.
