Here are all the tools pastors and teachers need to mine the Greek text and other language resources for the enhancement of personal study and sermon content. Using New Testament Greek in Ministry focuses on the transformation of exegesis into exposition, of studies into sermons. To prepare students toward this end, David Alan Black explains the process of using the Greek text and linguistic resources to study the New Testament and he recommends useful reference books for further study.

As I teach Greek to students preparing for ministry, I have to primary objectives of virtually equal importance: to give them adequate skills to exegete the New Testament and to mount a propaganda campaign on the relevance of Greek for preaching and teaching. For the latter objective I have been left almost entirely to my own powers of persuasion. Now Black’s book fills this gap. I intend to make it a mandatory textbook.
