I understand your disappointment. Keep the old one (I am Dutch myself
The cover page on Costas' product page is identical to the new edition, besides he mentions a liberal slant in the content, so it came with caution ("Modern Scholarly" one and does not attempt to be faith-based.)
The BDAG is not a paraphrased or dumbed-down version. The price is very high (150 USD), and it states that it is the 3rd Ed, published in 2001. The reviews are pretty good. I do not have it for TheWORD but it was included in my LOGOS package. I have both programs, one is free, and the other was a gift. Unfortunately for the giver I use TW daily, and LOGOS only once or twice a month.
