Post The Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament
I was wondering if the publisher of this lexicon had been approached yet for theWORD.

"The Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament"
by Frederick William Danker (Author)
Publisher: University Of Chicago Press (November 15, 2009)
ISBN-10: 0226136159
ISBN-13: 978-0226136158

The author of this lexicon was involved in BDAG. If possible it would be a good addition to the Lexicons already available.

I'll second the motion! It is a good lexicon. Danker is the "D" in BDAG.

How is it different from BDAG?

BDAG was pusblished in January 15, 2001
and this commentary in November 15, 2009

Here is the publisher's blurb:

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.

Some additional information:

"It would be tempting to think of the Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the NT (Univ of Chicago Press, 2009) as simply a condensation of its older sibling, but it actually is a fresh work with some unique and helpful features. It does leave out the early Christian literature covered in BDAG by limiting its entries to words in the NT. While this pains my patristic loving soul, I realize that not all students share my love for the Fathers and will most often use a lexicon for studying their Greek New Testaments.

While not its only virtue, the cost of The Concise Lexicon is also quite attractive. I got mine from Amazon for around $40! Here are only a few of its additional virtues. Danker continues the great feature introduced in BDAG of listing brief definitions of the word as well as a one word "gloss" which can be used in an English translation. He also includes many etymological suggestions for the lexical entry, a feature not found in the big BDAG. While not including all of the Scripture references where the word appears (like BDAG), for every significant word, all occurrences are mentioned. Danker also includes some principal parts for those pesky irregular verbs. He even provides some brief but well chosen exegetical discussions where word meanings impact the exegetical decisions. If you desire more, there is always BDAG."

It's a nice, modern lexicon that gives fairly thorough definitions for the words instead of just glosses, but it also leaves out the citations for historical usage, which most people probably aren't interested in anyway. That does make it a bit easier to follow. It's not an abridged BDAG either. It was done with some different goals in mind.

Has this inquiry ever gone any further? It does sound good.
