This dictionary lists over 8000 headwords on each side, totalling about 16,000 words. Because the series concentrates on the needs of travellers, the dictionary includes vocabulary of practical use to people travelling, staying, or living outside their native land. The author focuses on tourists, emigrants, and business people when compiling this list, but kept the employee of government and international organisations in mind as well. As a phonetic aid to the reader, pronunciation is facilitated using a simple transliteration system for both directions at once. The feminine and the neuter endings are listed in addition to the masculine ones.

Frederick William Danker, a world-renowned scholar of New Testament Greek, is widely acclaimed for his 2000 revision of Walter Bauer’s A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature. With more than a quarter of a million copies in print, it is considered the finest dictionary of its kind. Danker’s Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament will prove to be similarly invaluable to ministers, seminarians, translators, and students of biblical Greek. Unlike other lexica of the Greek New Testament, which give only brief glosses for headwords, The Concise Greek-English Lexicon offers extended definitions or explanations in idiomatic English for all Greek terms. Each entry includes basic etymological information, short renderings, information on usage, and plentiful biblical references. Greek terms that could have different English definitions, depending on context, are thoughtfully keyed to the appropriate passages. An overarching aim of The Concise Greek-English Lexicon is to assist the reader in recognizing the broad linguistic and cultural context for New Testament usage of words. The Concise Greek-English Lexicon retains all the acclaimed features of A Greek-English Lexicon in a succinct and affordable handbook, perfect for specialists and nonspecialists alike.
