In Philippians: A Handbook on the Greek New Testament, Lidija Novakovic provides a foundational examination of the Greek text of the Letter to the Philippians. The analysis is distinguished by the detailed yet comprehensive attention paid to the text. Novakovic’s exposition is a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Greek text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Philippians also reflects the most up-to-date advances in scholarship on Greek grammar and linguistics. This handbook proves itself an indispensable tool for anyone committed to a deep reading of the biblical text.
This excellent handbook admirably accomplishes its goal: to comment concisely on all of the grammatical, syntactical, and important text-critical features of the Greek text of Philippians, provide a fresh translation of the letter, and guide the reader to further reference tools for Greek New Testament study and to secondary literature on some debated issues. Highly recommended for use in intermediate and advanced Greek courses or as a supplement to the standard commentaries.~Judith Gundry, Research Scholar and Associate Professor of New Testament, Yale Divinity School
