Book description
Edward Jacob Boyce’s instrumental Glossary is a practical, efficient compendium of English words and their Greek translations. This functional, acute reference book is a remarkable introduction to the Greek language and its pronunciation for beginners, and an exceptional resource for those advancing their study of the language. A necessary means to enhanced understanding of the Bible, this text assists in getting the precise English definition and derivation of words from the Greek in an accessible A-Z format.Perfect for New Testament exegesis, many of the definitions are accompanied by references to specific Bible verses. This quintessential volume includes a succinct history of the Greek Alphabet and its contributions to the formation of modern language. With Boyce’s characteristic attentive emphasis on syntax and accidence, this essential lexicon is an indispensable and valuable guidebook for the illumination of the Greek language.
