Charles Irons’ book is another one of many resources available to help guide both clergy and layperson alike as they read the Greek New Testament. His book is not intended to replace existing books, but to supplement these tools by offering suggested translations and occasional parsing for intermediate and advanced Greek syntax, and to save time from having to look up advanced Greek constructions in a Greek Grammar book. When necessary he offers sources that can be cross referenced to support his translations and serve as a guide for more detailed exegetical studies.

Whether doing a pericopal study for Sunday’s texts or simply doing some leisurely reading of the Greek New Testament, Irons’ syntax guide is a convenient resource to have.
