The Abridged Version Of Beyond The Basics Shines May 10, 2006
Daniel Wallace, by his own admission is a little bit long-winded. Peruse his articles on bible dot org and you will see that his footnotes often contain more text than his actual articles. So to shorten up the basic points of his 800-page second-year Greek grammar, Wallace cut it by about two thirds into this nice little book.
It is excellent for those who already have a working knowledge of Greek, and it can be used with the other Grammar if you get confused. A five-star job by a five-star theologian.
This book is great Aug 18, 2005
Daniel Wallace is a well known Greek scholar in the Christian world. This book is one that will show you why. I was recommended this book by my Greek mentor and I find this book very helpful. It's a concise version of his big grammar. I glad this book was recommed to me. I never thought of buying it. I thought it was going to be to advance for me, but instead it has advance my learning of Greek. But you should have at least a year of Greek under your belt.
Great Job Dr. Wallace
The Basics of New Testament Syntax Nov 5, 2000
Having studied in detail the New Testament Greek syntactical the classical New Testament works of Dana and Mantey and A. T. Robertson's Grammar of the Greek New Testament in the Light of Historical Research I have found that Wallace has done an excellent job of simplifying the complexities of the Grammar of the New Testament and has written a book that has `re-worded' complex grammatical terms into language that will make it much easier for the serious Greek student to understand the original text. I especially recommend this book to students who have at least one year of basic Greek grammar on the college level. It will greatly aid in the study of the text.
