Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Basics of New Testament Syntax provides concise, up-to-date guidance for intermediate Greek students to do accurate exegesis of biblical texts. Abridged from Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics: An Exegetical Syntax of the New Testament, the popular exegetical Greek grammar for studies in Greek by Daniel B. Wallace, The Basics of New Testament Syntax offers a practical grammar for second-year students.

The strengths of this abridgment will become quickly apparent to the user: • It shows the relevance of syntax for exegesis and is thoroughly cross-referenced to Exegetical Syntax. • It includes an exceptional number of categories useful for intermediate Greek studies. • It is easy to use. Each semantic category is discussed, and a definition and key to identification are provided. • Scores of charts and tables are included to enable the intermediate student to grasp the material quickly.

Having studied in detail the New Testament Greek syntactical the classical New Testament works of Dana and Mantey and A. T. Robertson's Grammar of the Greek New Testament in the Light of Historical Research I have found that Wallace has done an excellent job of simplifying the complexities of the Grammar of the New Testament and has written a book that has `re-worded' complex grammatical terms into language that will make it much easier for the serious Greek student to understand the original text. I especially recommend this book to students who have at least one year of basic Greek grammar on the college level. It will greatly aid in the study of the text.

Although the content of the book is good, the Kindle conversion was done very poorly. All the Greek text is grainy, blurry, and hard to read. The accents and breath marks are impossibly to make out. This makes it almost useless.

Daniel Wallace is a well known Greek scholar in the Christian world. This book is one that will show you why. I was recommended this book by my Greek mentor and I find this book very helpful. It's a concise version of his big grammar. I glad this book was recommed to me. I never thought of buying it. I thought it was going to be to advance for me, but instead it has advance my learning of Greek. But you should have at least a year of Greek under your belt.

Great Job Dr. Wallace

I actually have both versions of Wallace's book, Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics as well as this abridgment of it and the companion workbook. I am learning Greek on my own so I will be reviewing it based upon that. This book is terrific! As far as my initial question (the title of my review) I would have to answer, "Both!" When I start a new section it is helpful to try and get the brief version of it so as to not be overwhelmed, then (since I am not taking a class and am self teaching) if I need more info or something is not quite clear I reach for the unabridged volume Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics. Both books I would highly recommend, and get the workbook too (http://www.amazon.com/Workbook-New-Testament-Syntax-Companion/dp/0310273897/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_y) as it really helps challenge you at the right pace as far as increasing difficulty.

Its abridged. So some concepts are hard to grasp with just 3 examples. It should have more--maybe I will buy the unabridged.

By far this is the best written book on NT Greek syntax at the intermediate level. I have read the book twice. If any comment I could make, I would say the book is slightly too rigid and a bit long-winded with the definition and identification sections. David Alan Black's It's Still Greek To Me would provide a simpler and shorter treatise. Wallace's text is a must read in the end.

This a very detailed book, and a great reference, but it is not bedtime reading. Every Greek student needs this book.
