Of Greek and Hebrew, Hebrew strikes the most fear in the heart of the Bible student. The alphabet does not look anything like English. The vocabulary offers almost no points of contact with English. The verb system is utterly alien. And the lexicons, grammars and textbooks are wrapped up in a metalanguage--spiked with Latin--that is daunting in itself. For those who feel that studying the English Old Testament is a challenge, the thought of reading it in Hebrew is extreme. Hebrew students need all the help they can get. If you are beginning your study of Hebrew and the Hebrew Bible, this pocket dictionary by Todd J. Murphy is for you. From ablative to zaqeph qaton, it defines the tangled terms that infest Hebrew textbooks, grammars and lexicons. Here is a book that will deliver you from the perils of the Piel and the thicket of metathesis. It is an indispensable glossary that will cut through that technical language--neither Hebrew nor English--that hovers like ground fog over the study and discussion of biblical Hebrew. Now you can devote more time to enjoying biblical Hebrew in all its richness.

The "Greek-German Dictionary of Writings from the New Testament and Early Christian Literature" is one of the standard works for New Testament scholars, researchers in patristics, and classical philologists. The 6th edition has been completely revised in all respects - in the NT text-base (both with respect to its comprehensiveness and the provision of variants) and in the Apostolic Fathers and the New Testament Apocrypha (these have been incorporated as comprehensively as possible for the first time). In addition, the Apologists and Early Church Fathers have been cited far more frequently than was previously the case. Numerous authors from the Christian, intertestamentary and classical fields have been referenced for the first time. Over 250 new articles have been included. The new typography speeds up searching and makes the structure of the articles more transparent. Thus, it waspossible to expand the material by about a third without increasing the number of pages.
