Publisher's Description

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.

    I am not a Greek scholar,nor well versed in Greek, yet I still find this book extremely helpful,and I get the concepts of what Dan is discussing. Everything is transliterated,and it is cram packed with scripture; I would give it a 5 out of 5. Before I forget it is also very useful to use with the Net Bible because much of the reference notes refer to pages in this book. It is an excellent work!

    I have all the reference grammars (BDF, Roberston, Moulton, Moule) and this is more useful than any of them. It is supposed to be an intermediate grammar, but it is in a category way above the traditional intermediate grammars (e.g., Dana & Mantey). I've been reading this cover to cover and enjoying it immensely. Generally, he explains things very well. I gave just shy of 5 stars because in several places, he uses terms that he doesn't define or used more complicated phrases. But it is still much clearer than the others (BDF is too densely packed and Robertson too wordy). He gives many examples which makes the learning process more clear (others provide examples but citing texts that you then have to look up - Wallace prints out the examples for you to see, with an English translation).Also, he's ahead of the classic grammars because he wrote in the age of the computer grammatical concordance (Gramcord & Accordance). Thus, he has to correct many of the statements of earlier grammarians whose cases were based on manual searches or memory of constructions here and there.I highly recommend this for anyone who has completed at least one year of Greek.

    You survived your first year Greek course. Congadulations. Now it's time to start having fun. This book is well written and well orginized and fun.(Fun next to 1st year studies) A little advice, start reading your Greek NT while you go through this book. You will learn a lot about the nuances of NT Greek from reading the text of the NT. Wallace gives many examples from the NT text so you completely informed.

    This is the definitive Greek Grammar for students of N.T. Greek. It was recommended in Gordon Fee's Book "New Testament Exegesis" (revised ed.). It is lucid, clear, and is also available on cd through Logos (Libronix). This book is a "must" for anyone who wants a better understanding of Greek grammar and syntax and how those matters are important to the proper interpretation of the New Testament. Outstanding book !!!
