About the series:
What distinguishes the Baylor Handbooks on the Greek New Testament from other available resources is the detailed and comprehensive attention paid to the Greek text of the New Testament. Each handbook provides a convenient reference tool that explains the syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, deals with text-critical questions that have a significant bearing on how the text is understood, and addresses questions relating to the Greek text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries, all in a succinct and accessible manner.
"This concisely written handbook is rich with semantic and grammatical insights that will prove very helpful to pastors and teachers who are serious about reading the Greek New Testament carefully and accurately. Readers will also find Campbell's rigorous and sustained application of verbal aspect theory enlightening for understanding how this contributes to a proper interpretation of the verbal elements in the text."—Clinton E. Arnold, Dean and Professor of New Testament, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
