This is a peculiar volume. It is not as much an index of Latin equivalents for Greek words in the two corpora, but specifically an inverted index to two Greek concordances that also give, among other things, Latin equivalents: A. Schmoller’s Handkonkordanz zum griechischen Neuen Testament and H. Kraft and U. Früchtel’s Clavis Patrum Apostolicorum.
The new volume sends therefore to the pages of the Handkonkordanz and of the Clavis and not to the texts themselves. I find that a bit counterintuitive, as it requires a used to employ three books at the same time, for one search. It goes without saying that this tool would fare a lot better as a searchable database, especially one with full referenced added.
I just finished a review of this book for RBECS.org, here.
