RBL Review of Porter (2015)

Last year I reviewed Porter’s collection of essays: Linguistic Analysis of the Greek New Testament: Studies in Tools, Methods, and Practice (Amazon).

SBL’s Review of Biblical Literature has now also published a review of Porter’s book by Héctor Martín. The author finds the book helpful and concludes:

“Porter’s work is extremely useful from the point of view of theorizing, approaching, and doing linguistic analysis. The book is also stimulating, innovative, and well-illustrated. Porter has the ability to anticipate questions inside a reader’s mind. Those who had been around text-linguistic analysis of the New Testament for some time will remain indebted to Stanley E. Porter for this outstanding work. I recommend it to anyone interested in laying a solid linguistic foundation for doing New Testament exegesis.”

My own review can be found here: Review Part I: Porter (2015) Linguistic analysis of the Greek New Testament.

And I must confess that my review of Charles Ruhl’s monograph on monosemic semantics is still in progress. I was pulled away from working on it by another project over the past six months. I hope to return to it soon.
