Item Description...
Overview
This Greek grammar text 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.

Publishers 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
It's a useful tool!  Jan 30, 2007
As is typical of biblical language grammars, some of the terminology found in Wallace does not reflect the jargon found in other grammars. However, his thorough indices are plus!
 
Portable Wallace  Jan 28, 2007
For those who use this classic grammar for reference, having Wallace available on CD is a welcome alternative to lugging around the 800 plus page hard cover text. Although I travel frequently, with this CD, I can still teach Greek over the internet and do exegetical studies for sermon preperation. Add the CD version of BDAG's lexicon, NA27 Greek NT CD, pack the laptop and leave the library at home.
 
Grammar book  Jan 10, 2007
This grammar book was very helpful with my studies. Although the title claimed to be beyond the Basics, it was more organized and thus helpful to someone new to ancient Greek.
 
inferior to older and cheaper works  Dec 15, 2006
I found this book very disappointing. It goes into much detail about minor points (uses of the vocative!) and ignores (idioms) or is light (prepositions) in others. I found it very unhelpful in unpacking difficult verses; passage after passage I looked up in the index only to find nothing of value.
Here's the real point. After buying this book I read Young's Intermediate Greek and Zerwick's Biblical Greek and found they cover almost everything in Wallace, better, more interestingly and in fewer words. Wallace seems to simply repeat stuff said better and earlier. Zerwick's exegesis is a lot more compelling.
Wallace does make a convincing case for the limits of grammar in exegesis, and it's nice that all his examples are fully translated and that his font is nice and big. But your time and money are better spent elswhere, the former of course in reading the actual Greek New Testament
 
the best  Nov 10, 2006
This is the best I've come across for intermediate/advanced grammar. Wallace picks up where Mounce leaves off and takes you to BDF and beyond. The book is written for clarity and understanding, unlike the reference works of BDF, Robertson, Moullton, etc. These are written for the Greek scholar seeking support for techincal points. This is a great service to scholarship, but how do you get from entry greek to there? Wallace! He takes you carefully through the fine points of grammar, making notes on how to maintain distinction between, say, the gen of material and gen of content. He also gives you plenty of examples, some written out with notes, others simply cited. The samaller works of Black, Brooks-Winbery, etc are too short on explanation and examples. IMO, you can do no better than Wallace.
