The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament (EGGNT) series closes the gap between the Greek text and the available lexical and grammatical tools, providing all the necessary information for greater understanding of the text. The series makes interpreting any given New Testament book easier, especially for those who are hard pressed for time but want to preach or teach with accuracy and authority.
Each volume begins with a brief introduction to the particular New Testament book, a basic outline, and a list of recommended commentaries. The body is devoted to paragraph-by-paragraph exegesis of the Greek text and includes homiletical helps and suggestions for further study. A comprehensive exegetical outline of the New Testament book completes each EGGNT volume.

"The EGGNT series is a must-have addition to the library of pastors, faculty, and students. These volumes present the reader with excellent exegesis of each particular New Testament book. The work on Romans is provided by John D. Harvey, whose highly competent exegetical skills are well-known in evangelical circles. Harveys analysis of the Greek text of Romans is superb, contemporary, and clear. He discusses the sacred text word by word, phrase by phrase, and sentence by sentence, producing an illuminating outline of the Greek passage under consideration. The exegesis is all there at the fingertips of the reader: vocabulary, syntax, grammatical outline, as well as further resources for advanced study on that particular passage in Romans. Add to this a very practical section on homiletics in terms of possible outlines for sermons, and the reader has at his or her disposal an invaluable commentary. At the same time, Harveys objective exegesis grants readers the opportunity to develop their own respective theological messages and applications to todays world. John Harveys work is a masterful study of Romans that will endear itself to readers for years to come!"
C. Marvin Pate, chair of the department of Christian theology and the Elma Cobb Professor of Christian Theology, Ouachita Baptist University
"In this volume on the Greek text of Romans, John Harvey provides an excellent guide for anyone wishing to work their way through Paul's epic epistle. Harvey strikes just the right balance between giving readers insights and information on Greek forms, grammar, and syntax and leaving ample space for readers to consider interpretive options for themselves. For students ready to take the next step in Greek exegesis, pastors who want to make good use of the Greek text for sermon preparation, and scholars needing a compendium of the major issues in the Greek text of Romans, this book is a must-have."
Brian Vickers, professor of New Testament interpretation and biblical theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Angelo5 Stars Out Of 5Very helpful in Greek just like the rest of the guides in the seriesMay 12, 2017AngeloQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Not by a well known author (as far as I know) but a great and helpful resource in Greek, particularly in grammar. This is one of the "must haves" in teaching/preaching through Romans.
This is a good Greek exegetical guide for the following reasons.
1) The grammatical and syntactical notes are very helpful in understanding the Greek text (in detail & structure) though as before, Greek knowledge beyond the basics is needed to make the most out of this guide.
2) Each section has a brief but helpful discussion of the structure and flow of that section. This is helpful to see what is in that section.
3) The diagrams showed the relationships of the clauses and phrases whether they are independent and dependent. I assume the diagrams included almost all of the Greek words. I looked at chapters 1-2, 5-6, 12-13 and 16 and only 5 words are missing in 5 and 8 words are missing in 6 and these missing words are almost the same and located in parallel format.
4) Each clause or phrase (not every word though) in Romans was analyzed just like the other guides in the epistles.
5) The exegetical outline is very helpful in seeing the overall as well as the sectional structure of the book of Romans.
6) The Homiletical Suggestions are helpful in providing a template to use in making your own (if deciding not to use these suggestions).
7) The Further Studies section is very helpful in providing additional resources to pursue / look at if needed. The references cited in the discussions themselves are also helpful in case of the need to look it up for the discussions.
8) Though the various options were not presented in numerical form with the preferred option with asterisks just like the rest of the guides (at least one did use numbering, 11:26), options were mentioned in the discussions and the choice was stated (though there are a few asterisks I noticed in the discussions).
Some content information for what are in the guide.
From Introduction to Exegetical Outline is about 407 pages (pp.3-409). There is about 5 pages of Grammar Index that covers grammatical terms only (plus a few literary terms), no Greek words. There is a Further Study section and Homiletical Suggestions after every section though for the former, sometimes there is a just a referral statement which sections to look at that deal with subjects under the current section. The Homiletical Suggestions stick close to the Exegetical Outline, sometimes exactly the same (except for subpoints in the Homiletical Suggestions) and if not, very similar. There are a total of 49 preaching sections with about a third having 2 Homiletical Suggestions, one is always based on the exegetical outline, the other can be thematic or something from parts of the text.
There is a possible error in p.337. Point "1) Reason" should be indented more so it is under subpoint "c." While "2)" should not have a closed parentheses, just "2."
The Table of Contents outline of Romans is the same as the main points and major sub points of the Exegetical Outline but the latter has more details by having points under main points and major points. The outline in the introduction is exactly the same as the outline in the Table of Contents as expected. So, maybe, take out the outline in the introduction that took about 2 pages.
The author has thought (and studied) about Romans for 5 years. He takes Paul as the author who wrote in Corinth around 57 AD to a mixed Jewish and Gentile Christian audience. Paul has cluster of purposes for writing, missionary, theological and pastoral concerns.
