As far as the Hebrew dictionary is concerned, it is probably the least objectionable of Benner's Hebrew books. Why? He usually just gives a gloss (an definition in one or two words) and the Hebrew spelling (of no better value than Strong's or other basic works, however). But Benner also has some "word studies" for some of the Hebrew Words, and that is the problem with this work. These more complete word studies are very poor and often misleading.

Just visiting Benner's website will inform you that he is self-studied in Hebrew. Nothing wrong with that. But he simply is not studied enough. For instance, to have a word study that suggest "bara" means fat or filled, is a mistake of the most elementary kind. The two words are homophones, but mean to separate things (for this Hebrew word for create). This leads Benner to other exegetical fallacies as you read through. They may "sound good" to an untrained ear (and even preach well to the masses) but they are in error.

I hold no ill will for Mr. Benner, but I can not recommend this book for any type of serious study. Since many who use Benner's works will not want to use the more challenging classical Hebrew tools, may I suggest that you consider the well done, though highly readable: Mounce's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament WordsMounce's Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words.

I always appreciate encountering a self-taught enthusiast of biblical languages like Mr. Benner and always want to encourage folks to do so. On the other hand it is somewhat problematic for one to put themselves in a teaching role, much less make a reference work when one does not have proper training to do so. The reader/purchaser should know that he himself admits on his website "I am also frequently asked for my "credentials" to teach Hebrew. Well, I guess I don't have any unless you count the thousands of hours I have spent in research and study." Hours of study do not amount to competency unless properly instructed, which is precisely the problem here. Just turning to the introductory front-matter, the trained linguist of the Semitic languages encounters a nearly overwhelming gaggle of linguistic and exegetical problems. Here are a few that jump right out.

1. Word-study approach - There is certainly a place for word studies, but he uses a typically novice type approach that is looking for the "real meaning" behind the word. This shows in his posture that most English translations (which are typically translated by large committee's of experts in biblical languages) are wrong and he is going to show the reader the "right meaning." The trained linguist knows that word meaning (semantics) is not based merely upon mere etymology or lexical definition, but more importantly upon the relationship of words in grammatical, syntactical and literary context. The author demonstrates he is grossly ill-informed linguistically and not competent in the field.

2. Scripts - This is a rather disturbing part of each definition.

We all have our concordances and lexicons..but this goes beyond. Each word in this lexicon is given it's due.
Understanding that Hebrew has root words is one thing but knowing the letters, their meanings, their ancient pictures using their standard Hebrew #s in other lexicons, cultural view, ......fabulous reference .......actually, I can't say enough about this book. I wished I'd known about it and had it in my library when it was first published.
Every bible believer needs this book.....why? Because reading it as translated into English and not going any farther into your relationship with your Messiah and your heavenly FATHER by getting to know THEM and THEIR HEARTS....as given in the original language. Watch Jeff Benner's videos on his website under module one in the education center...... You'll understand why I say this and I pray you respond accordingly.

Jeff A. Benner at [...] has gone far and beyond to go back to ancient hebrew words. His aim to find the true meaning of words and phrases and stories of the bible are eye openers. I am grateful for his truth seeking and sharing. Thank You so much.

This has been such a helpful Scripture study tool, I use it almost daily. The extended explanations have been eye opening for me and been confirmed by other reliable sources. I have used the Ancient Hebrew Dictionary to properly interpret passages of Scripture, even to the point of demystifying some of the popular mainstream or watered down translations of the Bible and seeing how it could have better been translated into English. This dictionary gives helpful perspective and point of view for all, but especially for those learning to intensely study the Bible and live by the Torah/Teachings/Instructions of Elohiym.
An example of a eye-opening definition would be emunah, often translated as "faith" or "belief," (when properly understood are okay, but are often defined in non-concrete or flighty terms) but Benner renders it as: act with firmness toward Elohiym's will. Seen this way, I think when we seek to obey the Scriptures, we are showing emunah, because we are living based on the established Words of Life.
I definitely respect Mr. Benner and have validated his research and definitions. If you want to dig deeper in the Bible, this is a excellent book to have with you.
