Editorial Reviews

Review

'“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

From the Back Cover

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.

Great for Greek students or those studying Greek.

I actually found this book years ago when I knew no Greek at all and was looking for grammars of the Attic dialect. I had no idea that I would one day commit myself to the understanding of the bible. It is actually through an advertisement in the back of this book that I found the whole Zondervan line, including William Mounce's fantastic introductory grammar. Now, years later, as I prepare for seminary, I find that I am already equipped with most of the Greek textsbooks that I will need there.
This book is a real treasure. Long before I could read any Greek I combed over the excellent essays at the beginning about the nature of New Testament Greek and the issues of teaching and learning Greek in his "purpose of this book" essay. Also, the book is designed as a reference, giving you everything you ever wanted to know about cases in one swoop, then verbs in one swoop, etc., yet Wallace keeps the various components of the Greek language distinct from one another and is very meticulous in assuming greater knowledge from the student as one works through the book, indicating that it is designed to be methodically worked through from beginning to end in seminary courses. The result is a teaching aid that is a well-indexed reference, usable for one's entire lifetime. Also, Wallace includes a number of examples with each of his paragraphs, and each of the examples is translated from the Greek. This is a wonderful boon for someone like me who, though having started Greek 4 years ago before before learning any foreign language, has since learned to speak German and read Hebrew fluently, but never got the time to acquire great fluency in New Testament Greek.

Wallace's grammar is excellent! It is very thorough and very detailed, but also very understandable and readable. (If you disagree, just try reading through A. T. Robertson's grammar to compare!) It is full of illustrations and charts and contains detailed explanations and offers many examples of syntactical categories. He also discusses many debatable and exegeticaly significant passages, giving the eveidence for different positions. To make it even more useful, there is an index of subject, one of Greek words and one of biblical passages. It is by far the most user friendly advanced grammar in print. It is part of the same series as Mounce's beginning grammar. (For more reviews on similar books.....

The knock on Wallace has been on the number of categories he uses, and some of the examples. I think that misses the point. Read the book, and begin to extrapolate from his examples an understanding of Greek syntax. His examples are just there for illustration, and I know he would admit they are not gospel.
It is telling that Wallace was asked to serve on the committe that will produce the next revision of the standard for advanced Koine Greek grammar, Blass-DeBrunner-Funk. Get this book, and then get BDF (or AT Robertson's grammar).

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Professor Dan Wallace's "Greek Grammar" not only furnishes an overwhelming amount of information for students, but could also easily serve as a launching pad for multitudes of scholarly work. Unlike the introductory texts that tend to have fixed rules, such as the declension endings, tense formatives or the square of stops (I'm using Mounce's terminologies here) with very few exceptions, "Greek Grammar" is an intermediate text where in some cases, there is no black and white rule of interpretation that perfectly applies to certain difficult passages of the Scripture; for example, the nuance of a train of participles in Eph 5:19-21 (p.651), whether they imply result or manner, and several other cases Wallace places under the heading of "debatable texts."

One of the most brilliant and theologically significant exegesis that I have studied in this text is the analysis of the anarthrous per-verbal predicate nominative "theos" in John 1:1 (p.256-270). Here Wallace shows that this "theos," citing the statistical analysis done by Harner and Dixon, is qualitative, not definite. So what's the big deal? It is a huge deal. An interpretation of definite theos might be the source of the error of Sabelianism or modalism. The error of treating the word as definite is a result of misapplication; the converse application to be exact, which is an invalid use of Colwell's rule. Moreover, even less excusable is the error of interpreting the word as indefinite such as what the New World translators did, that Wallace describes as more of an issue of theological bias toward Arianism (p.267). So the apostle John wasn't arbitrary when he placed an anarthrous pre-verbal predicate nominative theos in John 1:1.

Format: Hardcover
Any student of Koine Greek will greatly benefit from this well-written and exhaustively researched volume. Alongside your BAGD, you will find this text invaluable. Wallace not only shares his considerable knowledge gleaned over decades of teaching, but he manages to keep the content interesting and even (gasp) fun!
Affectionately known as "big green" among my seminary classmates, Wallace's advanced grammar has made our study of the GNT both easier and more complete. Kudos to Dr. Wallace on this fine work.
