The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament: Colossians and Philemon is the first book in a projected series of twenty volumes that seeks to bring together classroom, study, and pulpit by providing the student or pastor with the information needed to understand and expound the Greek text of the New Testament. Author Murray J. Harris aims to close the gap between grammatical analysis and exegesis, leading the reader into an in-depth understanding of the New Testament Greek text by guiding him or her through the processes of thorough exegesis flowing into sermon construction.

For every pastor and Bible teacher who remembers the countless hours spent learning all the interpretive categories in second year Greek, this exegetical guide is a dream come true. Harris skillfully applies this knowledge to provide parents with a helpful treatment of the details of the Greek text of Colossians and Philemon.

Regarding the first edition of this book (1991): The Exegetical Guide takes the student by the hand and leads him or her expertly through every word and nuance of the Greek text, with ample bibliography. It is a miracle of painstaking thoroughness: a boon both to every beginning and to every polisher-up of past beginnings.
