This reader's edition is a Greek New Testament student's dream: it combines the latest edition of the UBS Greek New Testament with a contextualized translation at the bottom of each page of all vocabulary items occurring 30 times or fewer in the New Testament. An appendix includes vocabulary for words occurring more than 30 times in the New Testament. --Christian Century

The vocabulary and parsing notes at the bottom of the page are also far more readable than in the Zondervan. In the UBS, they are arranged in two vertical columns. This makes locating a meaning a speedy job. The pause needed may even be short enough for you to fool someone into believing you are making the translation unaided! Not that I ever do that, of course. The Zondervan notes are quite a mess in comparison.
I also like the thick paper. Some people complain about the weight of books the way long distance runners care about shaving grams off their running shoes, but not me. I make notes on the pages and the thicker paper does not threaten to tear under the pressure of my sharpened pencils. Also, the pages are easy to turn and an open book stays on the same page even in a drafty room.
But I feel that some of the English meanings given for the less frequently occurring Greek words could have been done better. They don't fit that well. Sometimes, a more standard meaning works so much better.
All in all, a great Greek NT at an amazing price.
One thing I dislike is for revelations where scripture describes the mark of the beast being 666, this reader has the words six hundred and sixty six instead of the original symbols that are in the original manuscripts which are sigma epsilon chi.
overall it is a very handy book despite that one minor detail which I feel is important.
Its added size is not a problem, nor is the font. And I like the way they don't repeat the same definition for each cognate on the page - very efficient. And the UBS Dictionary has not failed me yet on a word I should already know but have forgotten. Of all the stuff purchased this year, this book has been the best!
