Dear David:

Yes I've seen, used and own Souter's pocket lexicon and despite it's age,
it's still an amzing piece of work. A good (perhaps better) alternative is
_Shorter Lexicon of the Greek New Testament_ 2nd ed. by F. Wilbur Gingrich,
revised by Frederick W. Danker. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1983.
221 pages. ( 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" ) Although it's not as"pocket-sized" as Souter
(7" X 4 1/2")(290 pages), it is more up to date as Souter was done in 1916
whereas Gingrich is done in 1983. Also it is readily available and does not
have to be ordered special.
