Learned SO much from this book. Sep 03, Cynthia rated it it was amazing. I’ll be honest, I have a huge bone to pick with this book and this is partly because I read Biblical Greek as a hobby but I digress that I consider myself quite capable at it, my vocabulary is in the ‘s and so is the time of hours I have put into the language. It often takes the meaning of words out of their historical context, it often takes a word that has a broad semantic domain and it takes that word at only one of its many possible meanings and teaches it as though it only has that one meaning however, in some cases he does handle the semantic domain of a word to an acceptable level , it also often jam packs as much meaning into a word as possible the word for ‘many’ a common and unemphatic word becomes ‘a huge number or to an enormous degree’ a reading that simply isn’t implicit to the word. I suspect there is a fair bit to be gained from reading this book, but there are also far too many opportunities for the unsuspecting reader to be lead astray. I found I didn’t enjoy that as much because it was overkill.
