A practical introduction for teaching and exegesis . Traditional approaches typically do not lend themselves to adequate explanations of such mismatches. I will not ask you to throw out all that you have known to be true about Koine Greek in favor of a brand new linguistic analysis. The writers of the New Testament used different devices to communicate prominence and to create contrast.

Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament : A Practical Introduction for Teaching and Exegesis. With examples taken straight from the "Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament," this volume helps readers discover a great deal about what the text of the New Testament communicates, filling a large gap in New Testament scholarship.

In Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament, Steve Runge introduces a function-based approach to language, exploring New Testament Greek grammatical conventions based upon the discourse functions they accomplish. Runge's approach has less to do with the specifics of language and more to do with how humans are wired to process it.

The approach is cross-linguistic. Runge looks at how all languages operate before he focuses on Greek. He examines linguistics in general to simplify the analytical process and explain how and why we communicate as we do, leading to a more accurate description of the Greek text. The approach is also function-based--meaning that Runge gives primary attention to describing the tasks accomplished by each discourse feature.

This volume does not reinvent previous grammars or supplant previous work on the New Testament. Instead, Runge reviews, clarifies, and provides a unified description of each of the discourse features. That makes it useful for beginning Greek students, pastors, and teachers, as well as for advanced New Testament scholars looking for a volume which synthesizes the varied sub-disciplines of New Testament discourse analysis.

With examples taken straight from the Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament, this volume helps readers discover a great deal about what the text of the New Testament communicates, filling a large gap in New Testament scholarship.

Each of the 18 chapters contains:

* An introduction and overview for each discourse function * A conventional explanation of that function in easy-to-understand language * A complete discourse explanation * Numerous examples of how that particular discourse function is used in the Greek New Testament * A section of application * Dozens of examples, taken straight from the Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament * Careful research, with citation to both Greek grammars and linguistic literature * Suggested reading list for continued learning and additional research

Words can't express how great this book is. I began reading this over Christmas break while teaching through Galatians at church. I can tell the exact week I started applying it because I was suddenly reading and teaching Paul with far more clarity. It's the single most important book I've read in the last 20 years. If you really pay attention to the "de"s, "gar"s, "kai"s, etc., it completely unlocks Paul's arguments. So many of the big debates among scholars on the particular meanings and connections in Paul are resolved. So many translations are seen as misleading/wrong/unhelpful. If you combine this book with logos software's discourse sets on the NT he made, you will find yourself becoming a far more capable reader and teacher. It's completely changed how I teach and work through a passage. It will help you be far more discerning in how you read commentaries. I told my sister, who has let her Greek lapse, that his book by itself makes relearning Greek worthwhile. I'm not sure how else I can gush about it. Runge has done the church a huge service. If you know Greek, and you're too short on cash to buy the book, sell anything else in your library to buy it.

With a ThM (Master of Theology) from Dallas Theological Seminary, one would think that I would have been taught all the major approaches to Bible interpretation. My professors tried hard! But new stuff has come along.

Linguists have developed an interpretive process known as Discourse Analysis. This approach covers a lot of textual features not well addressed by traditional interpretation. Take the "redundant quotative frame" (you know, those silly "He answered and said" couplets). Why the repetition? "He answered" would have served the point. No, it is redundant for a reason! The author is showing by the "unnecessary" repettion that what follows is a change in direction or an unusually important point. We might underline the text or put it all in capitals.

Runge introduces one to tens of features like this. He does it in a clear and compelling way. You will never read your NT or OT the same again! Some of the features require the original languages and some are quite clear even in a literal English translation.

I cannot too highly recommend this book. Yes, it is a lot of work reading but it is very much worth it. I suggest studying it in half hour chunks to avoid burnout. One really cannot absorb much more than this anyways.

This grammar is basically PHENOMENAL in it's approach to discourse analysis and linguistics and I was just FEASTNG on this book and I wanted to share some of the reasons why I loved it.

1. Runge makes discourse analysis very accessible and approachable and this book is excellent in the way that it approaches discourse analyltical linguistics and explains things very clearly and I have to say that Runge is a comedian and he relates the Greek concepts to English.

2. Runge explains why Greek sentences are constructed the way that they are and offers other explanations as to how the Greek sentence could have been constructed and show the exegetical and rhetorical signifcance of this.

3. Best of all the climax is that the first two items explain the place of linguistic prominence and emphasis and how to find it and he does an excellent job explaining it.

I highly recommend that you in addition to purchasing this grammar that you purchase the Lexham discourse Greek NT and Lexham discourse Hebrew Bible (which is still being worked on) where all the discourse devices mentioned in this book are marked out. It is my dream to memorize the Bible in it's original languages and I believe that this approach to exegesis will help me get there. I pray that this work is made a requirement in upper division Greek courses at colleges and seminaries.

Get this grammar it is worth it!

Loved this book! It has helped me take my biblical studies to the next level! Runge puts out other material through Logos Bible Software, and I own many of them as well! Especially check out his "High Definition Old and New Testaments!"
