As a pastor who studies for sermons in the Greek text, there are times when I turn to Kittel's. It usually has a lot more information for a specific word than I need for whatever it is that I'm working on. Sometimes the entries are difficult to read, other times they are absorbing and one can spend a lot of time just reading.

For example, on a common word that is studied, like AGAPE, Kittel's gives quite a bit of material. A typical way to use this tool would be to augment or deepen a study on a particular word. For example, there is some dispute on Romans 8:18 as to how to translate the phrase 'EIS HMAS'. Well Kittel's has 8 pages of information on how EIS is translated in a variety of contexts...most of which does not matter for Romans 8:18. You can quickly find the comments on a passage by using the Kittel's index. Just look up Romans 8:18 in the index and it gives you all the references throughout the series where Romans 8:18 appears. Go to the volume that has the entry for your main word and there you will find all the key entries for whatever you are looking for. So in our example, one would see that Volume 2 has one entry under Romans 8:18 (Volume two has EIS as a word entry in it). So instead of having to read the entire article on EIS, you can go to just the pertinent paragraph to see what he says there.

There is no other place in my library where I can find the amount of information on a simple preposition like this, or the depth of coverage. It is truly amazing. On top of that, some of the finer commentaries will comment on the article in Kittel's. In this example on Romans 8:18, Moo points to Kittel's in his 1100 page NICNT commentary on Romans.

It is a 10 volume set, and this review is tied only to Volume III (I think...

Format: Hardcover
Volume III of the TDNT, which covers words beginning with the letters Theta, Iota, and Kappa, lives up to the high standard set by the ten-volume TDNT as a whole. Over the three decades I have owned the set, I have used the TDNT more than I have any other NT reference work. It is thoroughly and scholarly and should form part of the library of every serious student of the NT. There is an entry for every word in the NT. Most of these entries are extensive and contain information not only on the way the word in question is used in various passages of the NT itself, but also its usage in the literature and philosophy of classical Greek, in the LXX, in Jewish sources such as Philo and Josephus, and in the Church Fathers.

If you are building your copy of the TDNT one volume at a time I would highly recommend that you start with Volume X, the index, before you buy the other volumes. This index contains indices of English keywords, Greek keywords, Hebrew and Aramaic words, as well as an index of biblical references (including the Apocrypha). This index will save you a lot of time in finding what you need and is especially valuable in finding where in the TDNT the words of a specific verse are discussed.

Just a note on Kittel.

"Kittel wrote a 10 volume Biblical Greek Lexicon Kittel's Theological Dictionary of the NT. The first 7 volumes were written while Kittel was Hitler's Minister of Propaganda, while the last three volumes of his Biblical Greek Lexicon were done while he was in jail for his War Crimes."
