Professor Frederick William Danker on
Greek Verbs in the New Testament and Their Principal
why things happen is half the solution in finding the path to knowledge. In this
book, Laurence Vance takes the wraps off much of the mystery surrounding the
many forms that Greek verbs undergo while donating meaning to a literary text.
Any language exhibits amazing fidelity to certain rules. Vance identifies many
of these to put an end to agonizing frustration in connection with clarification
of verb forms, especially those of the so-called irregular kind. Frequently
lexicons seem to close their doors to searchers of a main verb entry. With the
help of Vance's book, sentences will begin to make more sense and lexicons will
open their doors to the once-hapless searcher."
