BIBLE and INTERPRETATION
VOICE AND MOOD A Linguistic Approach David L. Mathewson ESSENTIALS OF BIBLICAL GREEK GRAMMAR Stanley E. Porter, series editor
This ideal textbook for the intermediate Greek classroom exam- ines two features of the Greek verb: voice and mood. Drawing on his years of teaching experience at a leading seminary, David Mathewson examines these two important topics in Greek gram- mar in light of modern linguistics, especially Systemic Functional Linguistics, and offers fresh insights. The book goes beyond the typical treatment of voice and mood in modern-day Greek gram- mars and is illustrated with numerous examples from the Greek New Testament. This is the first volume in a new series on Greek grammar edited by Stanley E. Porter of McMaster Divinity College. Series volumes offer short, linguistically informed introductions to key concepts in the study of New Testament Greek.

He is the author of Verbal Aspect in the Book of Revelation and has written commentaries on Revelation and the Septu- agint text of 1–2 Kings.

In the field of the role of verbs in the Greek grammar of the New Testament, there is definitely an old and a new wisdom. Mathewson judiciously blends the best of each and pro- duces a remarkably user-friendly synthesis of the two. An excellent inaugural volume for this new series, which may
