New Testament scholar Constantine Campbell investigates the function of verbal aspect within the New Testament Greek narrative.

Verbal aspect in the Greek language has been a topic of significant debate in recent scholarship. The majority of scholars now believe that an understanding of verbal aspect is even more important than verb tense (past, present, etc.).

This accessible and affordable textbook has done the job of simplifying the concept without getting caught up using terms of linguistics that no one except those schooled in that field can understand.

Includes exercises, an answer key, glossary of key concepts, an appendix covering space and time, and an index to Scripture cited.

Professors and students, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, can use this is as a supplemental text in both beginning and advanced Greek courses. Pastors that study the Greek text will also appreciate this resource as a supplement to their preaching and teaching.


"An accessible introduction to the question of aspect and time, comfortably hitting a center position that sees aspect as primary, but time as still important, and yet not oversimplifying the debate. This is an excellent place to start investigating this important issue." --William D. Mounce, author of Basics of Biblical Greek
