It ships in another week from pre-pub.(http://www.logos.com/products/prepub/details/4599)

A while back I bought the Lexham Discourse bundle. (http://www.logos.com/products/details/3887)I think this will be a wonderful addition. I saw the blog today and found myself with a big smile on my face.

Anyone else actively use the Lexham discourse resources? Who else is buying this?

Hi, I have 2 questions concerning this product. If I buy this, does it mean that I must buy "Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament Bundle (6 Vols.)"? It seems so to me, coz this one is just an explanation of the previous bundle, right?

secondly, may I say that this product is somewhat similar to " Idioms of the Greek New Testament" by Stanley Porter? If not, how does they compare?

Thanks..........

Oh yes! This is what will make it all so much easier to get your head round Discourse Analysis. If you follow Steve's own blog on NT Discourse, you will know that he combines serious scholarship with an ability to use mundane situations to illuminate quite technical, even arcane, aspects of Discourse Analysis.

This publication, which is also going to be produced in the Autumn (I think) in print, should unlock Discourse Analysis for people who have wondered if the steep learning curve is worth the effort. Stick out tongue This makes that gradient a lot easier. Smile

I just wish I could make the time (and afford the money) to join his seminar in June, but it's just not going to be possible for me to get to Bellingham, WA from Banff, Scotland. Sad

Scott, Yip:

I've got Porter and it is a good enough book, but Porter operates according to some presuppositions which he doesn't always make explicit.

Porter's good, but Runge's the money! Smile

I hope so. My NT Greek teacher was big on discourse analysis - he had every single page of his NA-26 marked and outlined into semantic clauses a la Beekman and Callow's SSWC, IIRC. I never could quite grasp the terminology, though, even though I read SSWC twice as well as other books on the same. I understand its importance, so I hope this resource makes me more understanding of DA.

I'm excited about it, although I'll probably have to wait a while before I have the money to get it. Glad to know, though, that it will be available when I do have the money to purchase it.
