- Named as one of the 850 Books for Biblical Expositors by the Master's Seminary
- An advanced Greek grammar
- A classic work on this subject
Originally published in 1900, this highly-detailed grammar, written by a former Professor at the University of Chicago, Ernest De Witt Burton, deals exclusively with the use of the moods and tenses in the New Testament. Grammar is not treated here as an end to itself but rather as an aid to the interpretation of the New Testament. So it is designed to assist students in the task of translating the Greek New Testament into English forms of thought and expression.
Burton's treatment of direct and indirect discourse remains one of the best.
