Hmmmm.... ok interesting. No I am not familiar with the content. I am using another work which refers to it on a frequent basis and that's why I am interested. I do have a number of general intermediate grammars already.

 

Thx

Ok to clarify a point Ryan and I discussed the other day. "Idioms" in the title of this work ought not to be read to literally, or at least not as one might commonly do. Porter says this at the start of the introduction :

 

Idioms of the Greek New Testament, the title of this volume, may arouse some curiosity. The term 'idiom' is not being used in the technical sense of set phrases in the language; rather, it is being used after the fashion established by C.F.D Moule, in his extremely helpful work, An Idiom Book of NT Greek to refer to the various patterns of usage of the Greek of the NT.

 

So there you go, I was misled rather by the title. Not that it's a bad work but it's not specifically concerned with NT Greek idioms as one would commonly understand the term.

 

Thx
