Thanks for that recommendation -- I see, from my search on the amazon.com
web site, that it is on offer there at 30% off list price.
I notice it runs to 1500 pages -- quite a door-stopper <g>
My search on "theological lexicon" also turned up a book which was
published in 1977 and is now out of print.
It is: Biblico-Theological Lexicon of New Testament Greek
by Hermann Cremer
Anyone know anything about this title?
Just before hitting the SEND key, I did a quick check on the MX Bookfinder
search engine, which threw up one copy of the original German edition
which had this intriguing note:
Anbreas Berthes, 1866.
1st. hblf leather. foxed,
spine tip chipped, boards
rubbed, owner's insc. &
stamp. neither the
National Union or British
contains this edition, they
do, however, list a 1872
Inscribed on endpaper
from M.G. Easton to Rev.
A.B. Cameron (dated
1873). Matthew George
Easton (1823-1894) was
a biblical scholar &
author of THE
(1893), among other
So perhaps the 1977 English edition was a reprint of the above?
Despite its age ( and aware of C.S. Lewis' warning on 'chronological
snobbery' <g> ) can anyone assess its value?
