Wuest is a decent language resource addition to any serious Bible student's library. The material is accessible and well organized, and offers a wealth of insight into the meanings behind a large number of Koine Greek words found in the New Testament. His personal translation of the Gospels and Epistles is useful for comparative purposes with those of Moffatt, Goodspeed, Phillips, Murdock, Nicoll, Wesley, Robertson, Westcott & Hort, and others.
Only minor issues: Those who can't read the original Greek will find the use of transliteration helpful but those who can may find this same feature annoying. While there is a Scripture index in Volume III the addition of a Word index would've been a handy inclusion.
How do they do this quality for the prices....? I can build a library now...I mean a QUALITY Library!

A Study in the WORD.....
Kenneth Wuest set I ordered is awesome. THE KNOWLEDGE of Mr. Wuest and all the others he gives credit to as well is unbelievable. I did not buy these for his Doctrine I bought them for his more than capable GREEK word study. I am just sorry I never got to study Greek under him..... I have read through 2 of the 4 volumes just to read his writing and getting used to his style. I am 2 years away from my PhD and when I complete this I believe I will look into more intense Greek study. I am looking forward to receiving my Zodhiates Word Study 5 volume set also. Wuest and Zodhiates takes you FAR FAR FAR beyond Strong's!
I can not believe the quality and the PRICE for these books for Wuest or Zodhiates ....here at CB.com
They are the price of some CHEAP workbooks by sadly lessor studied men.
A friend told me about his savings for our class books.....and he was so right!
Great prices .....excellent an knowledgeable customer service reps great shipping prices.....IT IS ALL so very very GOOD!! They give my BUDGET for my BOOK COST for my classes breathing room and it is so easy
I NO longer dreaded calling to order..... when I complete my order.... I just S M I L E.............thanks guys !!
You'll enjoy this collection more if you spend an hour or so getting acquainted with the main divisions in the content, which is appallingly unintuitive. Some sticky labels with permanent marker for making tabs will increase your use and enjoyment of these valuable volumes. As a bonus, you get a hard-bound Wuest's N.T. translation (more of a transliteration from the Greek) that's not, to my knowledge, available separately. Advice: just be discerning of where Wuest adds doctrinal interpretation to what God is actually saying. Let the Holy Spirit do that job for you and let Wuest provide insights into what the Greek mind expresses so precisely that English, by comparison, is just plain slovenly and imprecise about saying. In the N.T. volume, I recommend disregarding what Wuest places in [square brackets] i.e., Wuest's dispensational creed. Aside from his creed, I find his scholarly dissection of the Greek extremely enlightening.
