This Greek volume of the Dictionary of Biblical Languages (DBL) provides a comprehensive resource for the student of Biblical Greek. The text is ordered by GK (Goodrick-Kohlenberger) numbers, but virtually every article contains references to Strong's numbers as well. Links to the Louw-Nida Lexicon (also available for the Logos Bible Software) abound. Information on semantic domains is a mouse-click away. In essence, this Greek volume of the DBL is a centralized source of information about Biblical Greek, with numerous links to other resources for comparison.

    It's pretty good. Not only does it give you the definitions for a GK link in your commentaries, but it also shows you the reference to the TDNT. Although, as noted by "Anthony Grubb" below, it doesn't actually open TDNT, there are some workarounds. It's sad we can't get a free Strong's Concordance with Logos, and that it was necessary to buy this, but that's another issue. For what it is, it's decent.

    A good secondary "go to" resource from the manuscripts or interlinears. The DBL quickly glosses a term and provides many numerous other linked original language resources--with hover-over previews of the links, of course! Thus a user can quickly see which way they want to take their study. Provides cross-language (Greek-Hebrew) comparable terms & links, Strongs # links, Kittel/TDNT links (but see below), and several Louw-Nida links for associated phrases. However, there is one major shortcoming that must be addressed. The preview here on the Logos website works well with the hover-over previews, and shares the same problem I experience with my software version in that rather than actually linking to Kittel/TDNT, it uses that only as a reference and links to the Enhanced Strong's Lexicon (or "ESL," as in the hover-over). And unfortunately, ESL does the same thing when it opens, only opening additional copies of itself on the same entry. However, the ESL, in turn, lists references for the TDNT-Abridged and will open the correct entry for any listings of the TDNTA--which, in the same way, will not open links to TDNT, but only opens more copies of ESL. Thus, to get TDNT to open to the correct entry from these resources, one must open it from their library, and fortunately, by this time, it should find its way to the Strongs number reference from the previous resources, including, no doubt, the DBL of this review.
