    Hello. I was wondering if people could recommend Original Language tools for those with little knowledge of the original languages. In this regard, I wondered if the following work is better than Vines?

    Expository Dictionary of Bible Words: Word Studies for Key English Bible Words Based on the Hebrew And Greek Texts [Hardcover]
    Stephen D. Renn (Editor)

    I am fond of Complete Word Study Dictionary: Old Testament By Warren Baker and Eugene Carpenter and Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament
    By Spiros Zodhiates
    for those without deep Hebrew/Greek facility. It is also available in software versions for several platforms.

    Also buy DA Carson's book ''Exegetical Fallicies''. Read the section on ''word study falacies''. Very useful.

    Brother, I wish you would weigh in, where warranted, on some of the negative reviews at Amazon.

    My advice is either to learn the original languages or run far away from them. Dabbling will only make you skilled at getting whatever you want out of a text.
