Discourse Grammar a top-seller at major Christian conferences and Amazon.com
BELLINGHAM, WA—January 20, 2011—Steve Runge's Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament turned heads at the nation's most prominent conferences for biblical scholarship, outselling every other book from Hendrickson Publishers.
Given the number of books and papers presented at the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) and the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) annual meetings, Discourse Grammar's performance highlights the impact Runge's approach is having on biblical scholarship.
Discourse Grammar shot into Amazon.com's top 100 Christian reference works in two categories immediately following the conferences, proving its value for biblical interpretation. It remains among the top 100 best sellers in both categories today.
"The book’s reception has surpassed all my expectations," says Runge. "This project has been years in the making, taking the best of the latest discourse-based research and applying it to biblical exegesis. I had known that there was a void to be filled here, but had no idea it was so large."
Discourse Grammar is focused on exegesis, helping readers understand the highlighting devices used by Scripture writers to more clearly convey their message. Runge moves readers beyond simply translating the text by helping them understand what the highlighting devices do and why they were used.
"Runge has made discourse analysis accessible, systematic, comprehensive, and meaningful," says eminent Greek scholar Daniel B. Wallace in the book's foreword. "I have learned a great deal from this volume and will continue to do so for many years."
