Item description for Development of Greek and the New Testament, The: Morphology, Syntax, Phonology, and Textual Transmission by Chrys C. Caragounis...
Overview Provides a wealth of historical data about the Greek language that is not otherwise readily available.
Publishers Description Languages inevitably evolve, and our understanding of texts from particular times and places must be illuminated by an awareness of changes and continuities in linguistic usage over time. "The Development of Greek and the New Testament "explores the relationship between the developing Greek language and the body of writings in Greek that make up the New Testament, arguing that the history of Greek is vitally important to New Testament interpretation. Caragounis provides a wealth of historical information not otherwise readily available to students of New Testament Greek. Extensive tables, indices, and bibliographies aid further study. An essential resource for advanced students of New Testament Greek, this unique work is highly valuable for all Hellenists, Byzantinists, and students of Greek patristics.

I Thought So! Feb 18, 2007
This book is an extremely valuable discovery. It does have plenty of material that cannot be rushed through, though my temptation is to fly through it to see what's next. One should already have some sort of background in Greek (as well as Latin, German, and French) to get through it. That being said, my thoughts as I scanned through the book were, "Aha! Just as I thought!" And then, "I wish I had picked up more on this 20 years ago." If you are studying any period of Greek literature, especially the New Testament, get this information and run with it. Learn Greek the proper way and throw out the Erasmian pronunciation and the ancient versus modern dichotomy that have been forced on us.
