There are numerous Greek NT (New Testament) tools out there, but very few are helpful for lay believers who do not have the knowledge of the Greek. But Vine's Complete Expository Dictionary (VCED) is perfect for ALL believers. I have used it for 16 years thus far and still use it! Here are reasons for high recommendation:
1. You do NOT need Greek knowledge to use this book. It is that simple and arranged that way, using KJV of the Bible as the main text.
2. It explains KJV word in an original Greek in context. It provides the meaning of the word in a proper context of Greek background. For example: In English Bible, there is only one word for "love" but in NT Greek, there are four (two being used the mostly). Therefore VCED fills the gap between English Bible and Greek NT nicely and effectively.
3. It provides the definition of a word (KJV word) more accurately than the English dictionary because it uses Greek use of the word. For example: The word, "godliness (1Tim. 2:2)" in Merriam Webster Collegiate Dictionary is defined as "1: Divine 2: pious, devout -" but in VCED, it defines it as " 'to be devout,' denotes that piety which characterized by a Godward attitude, does that which is well-pleasing to Him." It provides fuller meaning of the word by explaining how the word is used in the NT.
4. It can be used with Strong's Exhaustive Concordance. Every word is numbered with Strong's number so you can use it more efficiently.
5. This edition includes OT Dictionary as well. Although not written by Vine himself, it still is helpful, but is not as complete as Vine's NT.
6. This edition is clear in typeset (modernized). Previous editions were bad to read because of its old typeset.

This is a classic, essential reference, right there with Strong's, and with good reason. If you don't have an expository dictionary of Bible words from the original languages, then you should start with this one. Some terms are discussed in depth, others more sparsely, but it gives you a good feel for the meaning of important terms.
As you become more comfortable with examining the meanings of the original Hebrew or Greek words, you may find yourself wanting more, and so there are other, more in-depth dictionaries available. But this is quite accessible and an excellent starting point. Vine's is also fairly denomination-neutral, being careful not to expound too much on opinion, but sticking to the business of objectively defining the word.
If you're looking for an expository dictionary and don't have one, this is the place to start.

This review is intended for Kindle buyers. I own hardback and Kindle copies of both Vines and Mounce. I prefer Mounce in the hardback version, although I find Vines very helpful. However when it comes to the Kindle version, Vines is light years ahead of Mounce on navigation issues. Mounce is virtually unusable, Vines is easy to navigate. If you are new to Kindle, content is one issue and navigation a completely different issue. A good reference book on Kindle is a waste without proper navigation. Buy Vines, not Mounce until Mounce is serious about entering the electronic age.

This is an excellent resource for someone new to doing word studies. It includes Strong's Concordance numbers for each word making it easy to differentiate between various meanings. You do not need to know the original language to find the original meaning. I use it in conjunction with either Strongs Exhaustive Concordance or with Zodhiates Word Study Bible. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to do further research and get more accurate information from their Bible study.

Format: Hardcover
I am a student of New Testament Greek. Researching in the Greek is one of my favorite things to do. My library is small, but includes some good research books. I must say at first that I thoroughly enjoy my Vine's.
I use Vine's everytime that I do research. It is a good resource and full of information. But I must caution those who intend to use this book w/out any knowledge of Greek, that you will have to put forth some effort into this book. At times there are words that come across, such as "passive use, middle intensive, conditional clause", which will only make sense if the reader understands Greek. I know of an English teacher who has a hard time w/ Greek...mainly because, for example, an infinitive in Greek is not the same as an infinitive in English. So understand that the labeling of words in Vine's is from a Greek standpoint.....not English.
In my studies I have discovered that many times Vine's is unable to ascertain the meaning/definition of the use of a word. It's use to me that is it has logically grouped words together, and summarizes (at best) the usage of the words in the New Testament. In my corresponding research w/ Kittel's and Colin Brown, I have found the groupings of Vine's to be somewhat consistent.
When I need a quick look at a word, I always go to Vine's. If I need in-depth study, I pull my other books out.
This book will be a huge benefit for anyone who serious studies the New Testament. I believe that those who do casual study will not gain the full use of this book.
For those who are looking for in-depth insight and knowledge into the use of Greek words and language will not find much benefit from this book. Those who do want to see the "richness" of the original text will need to embark on a life-long study of New Testament Greek.
