Overview

This Greek grammar text 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.

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.

Author Biography: Daniel B. Wallace is professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary and a noted Greek grammarian.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
'“Students in second-year Greek (and beyond) profit immensely from the conception, organization, examples, and discussion of this book. Robertson is prolix and dated. BDF is uneven, great for scholars but not always fruitful for students. Other “second year” grammars are less comprehensive. Students who work through the salient points of Wallace (with an instructor’s guidance on what is salient) gain a grasp of classic categories, a sense for how language works, and a respect for how much more we all have to learn. Is it a perfect resource? No. Can it serve invaluable pedagogical ends? Absolutely!” Covenant Theological Seminary -- Robert W. Yarbrough

“I utilize GGBB in our Biblical Language major, recommending it to our second year Greek students, and requiring it in our third year courses. Teaching grammar can be tough and even boring, so the way I use it in ‘Advanced Greek Grammar’ is in a more inductive manner. As we translate Romans, I ask the students to look up every scripture reference in GGBB and come to class prepared to discuss that usage. The superb Scripture Index (799-827) facilitates their study. There are 600 examples from Romans alone in GGBB, covering virtually every grammatical function.” The Master’s College -- William Varner

    This book is a great tool for any student of Greek. Wallace's grammar is thorough and enlightening. His examination of Colwell's Rule is outstanding. Very well done.
