About-

Biblical Exegesis of New Testament Greek: James is a workbook designed to guide the beginning- to intermediate-Greek student through the process of biblical exegesis of the text of James. The workbook leads the student through a comprehensive process of grammar review, translation, exegesis, and application of the Greek text. It is based on a deductive pedagogy for learning Greek but follows an inductive approach to grammar review. Students review grammatical, morphological, and syntactical issues arising in the text of James.

The inductive grammar review references Gerald L. Stevens's New Testament Greek Primer as a companion grammar. Analysis of syntactical and exegetical information is presented from major lexicons, critical commentaries, and Greek grammars. Detailed footnotes conveniently present this valuable material. Key questions probe crucial exegetical and theological issues. Special vocabulary aids minimize lexical work, enabling students to focus on exegesis. An optional textual-criticism section is offered for intermediate students.

Each lesson concludes with a practical application for ministry. Students are required to "phrase" a portion of the Greek text. They then construct a sermon or teaching outline based upon the phrasing exercise. Upon completing this book, students will have fifteen biblically based outlines from the Greek text for preaching or teaching purposes. Biblical Exegesis of New Testament Greek: James encourages students and pastors to sharpen their Greek skills and to use their Greek New Testaments in ministry . . . from translation to proclamation.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"In Biblical Exegesis of New Testament Greek: James, Craig Price provides a clear, accurate, and student-friendly approach to learning New Testament exegesis. Using James as the primary field of study, students plow into grammar, translation, exegesis, phrasing, vocabulary review, and application. This trustworthy guide will equip students to know, use, and love the New Testament at a much deeper level."
--J. Scott Duvall, Professor of New Testament
Ouachita Baptist University

"The church is in dire need of pastors who will spend time both exegeting the biblical text and faithfully preaching its content. Craig Price has given pastors and teachers who appreciate the Greek text a tremendously helpful tool-helping them move from the original text to a preaching/teaching outline. Moreover, professors who are looking for a textbook to help Greek students read through James will find this textbook/workbook blend a great pedagogical tool."
--Preben Van
Professor & Chair, Department of Biblical and Theological Studies
Palm Beach Atlantic University

"This work will serve beginning Greek students extremely well in moving from grammar into the use of Greek for exegesis by way of the direct study of a New Testament book. Besides reinforcing their basic Greek skills through a solid grammar review, students will begin to experience what is so often their major goal for studying Koine Greek: learning how their Greek study directly benefits the exegetical process. This tool will further motivate students to continue in their study of Greek as they see the practical implications for interpreting the New Testament."
--Bill Warren
Director of the Center for New Testament Textual Studies
New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
