At the heart of this collection is the Grammar of New Testament Greek, begun by J.H. Moulton in 1906 and finished by Nigel Turner in 1976. In four volumes the authors have covered every aspect of the Greek language as it applies to the New Testament. Their thought-provoking analysis is supplemented by a multitude of invaluable charts and indices.
Together with the grammar is Turner’s Grammatical Insights into the New Testament. This volume covers a number of controversial subjects that were beyond the scope of the grammar. It demonstrates the theologically vital information one can garner by applying knowledge of Greek to the study of the New Testament.
This collection represents over seventy years of New Testament Greek scholarship. Each included work is characterized by solid erudition and innovative thought expressed in enjoyable prose. As compelling as it is comprehensive, the Moulton-Howard-Turner Greek Grammar Collection is an invaluable resource for advanced students of New Testament Greek. As useful as it is readable, it takes its place by the side of Blass-Debrunner-Funk and Robertson as a necessary tool for the exegesis of the Greek New Testament.
