The Pastoral Letters: A Handbook on the Greek Text
offers teachers and students a comprehensive guide to the grammar and vocabulary of the Pastoral Letters. A perfect supplement to any commentary, this volume’s lexical, analytical, and syntactical analysis is a helpful tool in navigating New Testament literature. Larry J. Perkins leads students toward both a greater understanding of the Greek text and an appreciation for the textual and rhetorical intricacies not available in English translations.
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 volume is part of the Baylor Handbooks on the Greek New Testament Series. You can purchase the entire New Testament Set here or a set of both Old and New Testament volumes
on this page.
"Larry Perkins’ grammatical, linguistic, and rhetorical analysis will be helpful to advanced Greek students who seek to compare their own analyses with a careful Greek scholar. Claiming to analyze, not interpret, the Greek text, Perkins cautiously stays on the middle path as to authorship and issues related to women and ministry."
—Aída Besançon Spencer, Professor of New Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"This is a valuable series for those students of the New Testament who want a comprehensive and reliable guide to the Greek text of individual New Testament books."
—Donald Senior, CP, The Bible Today
