Like so many great books of earlier generations, the newer editions have been rendered less reliable by publishers and liberal minded
editors. In some instances in these books, entire paragraphs have been omitted or re-written to remove the actual meaning of the author's original work!
Search for the best available older editions of these great classics. You can find them in the Used sections of Amazon and other used book sources. Look for the earlier (usually pre-1990's)and un-tampered editions of Strong's Concordance, WE Vines dictionary of New Testament Words, and Thessien's Lectures in Systematic Theology, the Interlinear Greek New Testament an other such foundational studies for pastors, teachers and students. With sales of the 'new editions' languashing, perhaps those who control the copyrights will eventually catch on to actually publish the original and reliable editions once again. Until them, shop the 'Used' sections.
I recently bought the Vine's for Kindle. The basic content is the same and it is well-presented on the page. There is a table of contents for Old Testament and New Testament. Both have a contents page allowing the user to access words by first letter. It is easy to navigate to the word you are looking for.
I was disappointed by two deficiencies. First, the book is not indexed, so a search of the book does not work as the pop-up message panel will explain. Having this would make the Kindle version more useful and flexible and indexing a dictionary would seem, to me, an obvious requirement. Secondly, my print version has an index in the back which consists of all of the Greek and Hebrew words in the dictionary transliterated into English. Under each transliterated word are the English words into which the Greek/Hebrew word is translated for dictionary purposes. The English translation of the Greek/Hebrew words in Vine's follow the King James version. In many cases, newer translations do not translate the words the same. Having this index would allow you to find what word Vine's is using and navigate to it. My solution to this is to look up the passage in my Kindle KJV and find the word there and then go to Vine's and navigate to the word. It would be much more convenient if the index were there instead of end-note references. Maybe it could be indexed and linked to the reference words.
However, for the Kindle, this is a very good quick-reference aid for getting a feel for the word in the Bible in context and enriching your Bible reading and study using the Kindle. I have profited from having it.
