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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.

This is a more condensed version than his larger lexicon. It is a handy little volume. See my comments on his lexicon for my review on his work overall.Published on May 19, 2014 by J. Westlund
