    1. "Those within Greek scholarship often lament that students, pastors, professors, and New Testament commentators seem out of touch with what is going on in Greek studies." (from the Introduction, 20). Thus begins this important work by Constantine Campbell and after reading this book, it is no wonder we seem out of touch. It seems to me that ignorance might just be bliss. I jest, of course, because this is a very important book and I hope it receives a wide audience, future updates, and reprints. [...]


    2. Not exactly a page turning bestseller, but nonetheless a very important resource for the student of the Greek NT. Campbell discussed and highlights various issues in Greek studies including linguistics, lexicographer, aspect, Aktionsart, deponency, discourse analysis, and more. The key strength to this book is the clarity with which difficult issues are handled. What is also helpful are his background information on why certain things were discussed, are important etc. Some of this will no doubt [...]


    3. This book is the first non-fiction I've reviewed, and let me tell you how glad I am to have picked it up. With my background in Archaeology, ancient languages has always fascinated me. While I studied Biblical Hebrew, my husband studied Classical Greek for his four years of undergraduate study and during his two year master's program in Classical Studies. Armed with this, and with my own studies of the New Testament via word studies (and with the memorization of the Greek alphabet for my sororit [...]


    4. Campbell’s Advances in the Study of Greek offers a helpful and user-friendly introduction to the many contemporary issues in the world of New Testament Greek scholarship. Overall, the book brilliantly executes what it sets out to address, for the type of audience he had in mind (namely, those uninitiated in the world of Greek linguistics). In the process, he has provided a good overview and carefully explained a select few major topics found in recent advances or debates in the study of Koine [...]


    5. Constantine R. Campbell is Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Theological Seminary in Deerfield, Illinois. Campbell received a PhD from Macquaire University and is author of numerous books, including Basics of Verbal Aspect in Biblical Greek (Zondervan, 2008), Keep Your Greek: Strategies for Busy People (Zondervan, 2010), and Reading Biblical Greek: A Grammar for Students (with Richard J. Gibson, Zondervan, 2017). Still, one of the most important resources that Campbell has writte [...]


    6. It has been some 4o years since my formal study of Greek in college and seminary, and this book did a great job in catching me up to some of the exciting developments in Greek studies since then. Of particular interest is the increasing consensus that the concept of deponent verbs does not belong in Greek (they are true middle voice verbs), and the clearer understanding of aspect in the understanding of verb tenses. I very much appreciate (and agree with) the author's conviction on the critical [...]


    7. Great introduction to current issues in the study of Koine GreekThe chapters are short and adequate. You will understand what the issues are and the path ahead. A fair and balanced treatment is provided in every chapter. Representatives on each side of a debate or school have a voice. The recommended reading list at the end of each chapter is worth the price of the book. You will know the resources to acquire to advance in your study of Koine.


    8. A helpful summary of recent conversations about NT Greek. The chapter on deponency and "laying it aside" was particularly useful, and I'm now convinced: no more deponent in my NT Greek class. Campbell's best virtue in this book: concision. Recommended for all those looking to refresh their teaching and study of the GNT.


    9. The author combines key concepts in linguistic theory with insights about the Greek language. It is an interesting book for those interested in the New Testament, Bible translation or biblical Greek.


    10. With so many advances in the various fields, one might ask whether there have been any advances in the study of greek that should affect the way we understand the study of greek? Constance Campbell argues there have been much advances and he wants more preachers and scholars to be aware of them.A note before I start, I read this book with an extremely weak knowledge of greek. I can do only simple transliteration and has some knowledge of greek vocabulary. My greek grammar is almost non-existent [...]


    11. This book is about, well, what it says it's about. If you think about when you learned your Greek, then think about when your teachers learned their Greek, it's easy to see how you could be several decades behind the curve (for instance, I was recently trying to tell a coworker that there was no such thing as "deponent" verbs in Greek; I think he glazed over). Anyhow, it is Campbell's task to get us up to speed, or at least to direct to the right place in order to read up and, hopefully, catch u [...]


    12. A useful overview of some recent developments and studies in Koine Greek that have important implications for Greek Exegesis. Chapter 2 is very useful as it surveys the different schools of though for linguistic theory and Campbell makes the important argument that we cannot ignore linguistics since we all have linguistic presuppositions when we interpret Scripture, so we should strive to refine our thinking and accuracy in order to sharpen our exegetical abilities. The two chapters on Discourse [...]


    13. Excelente Livro! Clareza, humildade e profundidade, desde parte histórica, a familiarização dos termos linguísticos, lexografia e semântica, o capítulo sobre deponência (ele propõe abandonar o termo,fala dos diversos estudos que estão sendo desenvolvidos e alerta para os reducionismo de simplesmente não considerar a importância da voz média). Demonstra clareza também no capítulo sobre aspecto verbal e Aktiosart, no capítulo seis sobre idiolect (ou "estilo". O resumo do pensamentos [...]


    14. This book has been an excellent overview of some of the more recent advancements in New Testament Greek scholarship. It has deepened my understanding of how far New Testament Greek scholarship has come, as well as which areas are still in dire need of extensive research. I would highly recommend every seminary student in their second year of Greek, as well as professors, pastors, and other biblical scholars wishing to gain a quick survey of recent advancements in New Testament Greek scholarship, [...]


    15. I read this book a few pages at a time in the mornings to supplement my study of Greek. Rating it was a challenge though. Yes it's well written, thoughtful, and insightful, but it's not going to be very interesting unless you really like obscure arguments about ancient greek (like proper pronunciation - yes people really argue about that). So I went with 4 stars, but I suspect most people wouldn't even give it 1 star.




    16. Good presentation overall; simple discussion and really good "Further Reading" sections in the end of each chapter -> Thus functions like an encyclopedia (in case one expects it to be a grammar).
