Product Description

Synopsis

For seminary students, the goal of studying Greek grammar is the accurate exegesis of biblical texts. Sound exegesis requires that the exegete consider grammar within a larger framework that includes context, lexeme, and other linguistic features. While the trend of some grammarians has been to take a purely grammatical approach to the language, Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics integrates the technical requirements for proper Greek interpretation with the actual interests and needs of Bible students. It is the first textbook to systematically link syntax and exegesis of the New Testament for second-year Greek students. It explores numerous syntactical categories, some of which have not previously been dealt with in print. Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics is the most up-to-date Greek grammar available. It equips intermediate Greek students with the skills they need to do exegesis of biblical texts in a way that is faithful to their intended meaning. The expanded edition contains a subject index, a Greek word index, and page numbers in the Syntax Summary section.

Format: Hardcover
The frustrating thing with starting to learn NT Greek is that it takes a while to be able to do anything with it. Once you have completed a basic grammar (I recommend Mounces's Basics of Biblical Greek in the same series), you should buy yourself this as a reward. At last you can put your hard work to good use!
Main reasons to choose this grammar above any other:
1) It is incredible readable considering how in depth it is. Never has a book so scholarly, been so accesible. 2) It is thoroughly evangelical, yet honest - not afraid to challenge traditional evangelical interpretations. 3) It shows the huge difference that knowing NT Greek makes to understanding & teaching the Bible, without ever over-stating the case - it clearly shows the limitations of Greek grammar too. 4) It is so practical! Nobody who teaches the Bible regularly will fail to read more than a few pages without seeing how the grammatical point they are studying will affect their teaching. The emphasis on the exegetical applicability of the grammar is second to none.
No one who teaches the NT should be without a copy - even if you don't read Greek you can glean much and you will be reminded of why you should.
(Final note: this book is ideal for reference purposes, but there is an abridgement of this book (Basics of NT Greek Syntax?) which would perhaps be better for the intermediate student working through from cover to cover)

I self-taught Koine greek from Mounce's book Beginner's Basic Greek in this same series. At the end of that I knew I needed something that went into the nuances more but, for a long time, couldn't find what a book I could afford that looked like it would work for an interested amateur like myself. This book (which I found through Mounce's website) hits the spot perfectly. Clear and lucid, it gives me the sort of help I need.

Be warned if you also come from Mounce's textbook, that this is a longer work and not as easy to work through as Mounce. But well worth the effort.
