A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance
Biblical language software has caused an explosion in the original language study that can be maintained beyond seminary, graduate, and post-graduate work. But just as no amount of parsing can make up for excellent, nuanced biblical language instruction, no amount of software can replace the importance of language facility, maintained by practice and review, as users see biblical languages insight in ministry, research, and teaching contexts. This book serves such a purpose. Arranged alphabetically, The Biblical Greek Companion for Bible Software Users presents reminders, examples, and further instruction on the “tags” and terminology software users encounter while using various software platforms, such as Logos Bible Software, Accordance Bible Software, Bible Works, and others. This flexible, scalable, and focused approach will ensure the wide use and appreciation of The Biblical Greek Companion for Bible Software Users.
While Bible software provides users with an abundance of useful information, it unfortunately does not provide them with an explanation of what most of that information means or its significance for understanding biblical texts …. So when a Greek language program informs us, for example, that a word is a vocative, or a genitive, ora subjunctive, or a middle voice, we do not remember (or perhaps have never learned) what these grammatical terms mean.
The Biblical Greek Companion for Bible Software Users provides simple and clear explanations of the basic grammatical terms that [students] are likely to encounter in their Bible software. Each entry provides (1) a description of what the form looks like, (2) a summary of what it does, that is, its main functions (with examples from the Greek New Testament), and (3) an “Exegetical Insight” to show how the grammar will help us interpret the text.
A very useful tool not just for Bible software users – a helpful, quick summary and review for all students of the Greek New Testament.
