Item description for Greek for Preachers by Joseph M. Webb & Robert Kysar...
Overview "This dynamic book will help you bring the New Testament to life in your sermons by alerting you to pulses of meaning that are lost in English translation. The heart of the book is ten clear, practical, and well-illustrated principles for uncovering dimensions of significance of the greek text. Designed for beginners and pastors with little experience, the authors introduce readers to the alphabet, to Greek words, and to making use of Greek through an Interlinear Greek/English New Testament."
Publishers Description A knowledge of basic Greek grammar can illuminate scripture passages for preachers seeking a better understanding of the Bible and fresh perspectives for faithful sermons. Joseph Webb and Robert Kysar review rudiments of New Testament Greek with specific attention to how preachers can use their growing knowledge of Greek to integrate linguistic and exegetical insights in ways that are faithful to the sermon without overwhelming the listeners.

Reviews - What do customers think about Greek for Preachers?
great guide and review Oct 29, 2002
Webb and Kysar provide an excellent review for preachers who have some basic background in koine Greek. However, no prior knowledge of Greek is required. The authors lead the reader through step-by-step basics, as each chapter builds skills and knowledge. The volume is not intended to make scholars out of neophytes. However, Kysar and Webb do a very admirable job of equipping the preacher to mine the many riches of the New Testament. Sample sermons are provided, as well. Various cautions and encouragements are candidly described. This book may well turn out to be a modern standard for the worthy challenge of preaching the Christian Scripture.
