The articles of this volume originated as papers presented at a session from the Society of Biblical Literature. Overall, the articles are uneven. The first section on teaching Greek & language acquisition are excellent and the third section with it's linguistic investigations, looking at the Greek Middle Voice, Relevance Theory, & discourse grammar are fantastic. But the middle section of Prominence is rather lacking. Porter's overview isn't super helpful and makes some incredibly odd claims about the literature on markedness theory -- almost to the point that you wonder if he's read the literature he cites.Nevertheless, the book is worth it for the first and last sections. This is especially true if one orders directly from Sheffield Phoenix and gets their "Scholar's Price" which is roughly 50% the institutional price.
