Fantin - The Greek Imperative in the New Testament

Post by Matthew Longhorn » January 3rd, 2018, 4:24 pm

I am just about to start reading Joseph Fantin - The Greek Imperative Mood in the New Testament. I was wondering what the general consensus on this book is (if there is one) amongst the the scholarly community? Is there anything that I should be wary of here?

Concise review - glad to hear it. Thanks, just always aware that I come to these books without the danger of uncritically accepting things that may be largely viewed as inaccurate.

If Mike says it's superb, then superb it is. However, a slightly more detailed review:

Thanks for that link - interesting read. I was glad to see that it makes use of relevance theory, if only so that I can dig more into it. Since reading Margaret Sims book on ina and oti I have been slowly trying to improve my knowledge of this theory.
Out of interest - I think I read somewhere that this series is no longer being published, is that correct? There was meant to be an upcoming book on the perfect tense form which I cannot find info on publication date.
