In this volume Culy provides a basic lexical, analytical and syntactical analysis of the Greek text of 1, 2, and 3 John--information often presumed by technical commentaries and omitted by popular ones. But more than just an analytic key, I, II, III John reflects the latest advances in scholarship on Greek grammar and linguistics. The volume also contains recommendations for further reading and an up-to-date bibliography. A perfect supplement to any commentary, I, II, and III John is as equally helpful to language students, of any level, as it is to busy clergy who use the Greek text in preparation for proclamation.
This handbook is an excellent study tool, providing depth in analysis of the Greek text not often provided even in technical commentaries. In it, Culy shows his familiarity with the current state of linguistic analysis of New Testament Greek, and where appropriate, points readers to relevant secondary literature. All in all, this book is highly recommended.~Kenneth Litwak, The Covenant Quarterly
