Guide to Prepositions in the Greek New Testament
Vance, Laurence†M.

Pensacola, Fla.: Vance, 2007 pp. 31. $5.95

Description: Although every grammar of New Testament Greek has a chapter or section on prepositions, the treatment given to prepositions is in many instances inadequate, confusing, misleading, and, in some cases, incorrect. This is especially true regarding the so-called improper prepositions. Guide to Prepositions in the Greek New Testament is the ideal supplement to any Greek grammar book. It presupposes only a very basic knowledge of New Testament Greek grammar. The book is organized into four parts: introduction to prepositions in general, the description and use of proper prepositions, the description and use of improper prepositions, and the adjectival use of prepositional phrases. It is truly comprehensive, covering each and every preposition in the New Testament. Examples taken directly from the New Testament are provided for each preposition discussed.
