I am considering purchasing this bundle.  I was looking for any feedback from those who have this resource.  How helpful is it?  Does it work well in both Libronix and L4?

Also, should I purchase the Discourse Grammar of the NT: A Practical Introduction for Teaching and Exegesis?

Thanks,

Ron

Ron,

In short Yes, Yes and Yes.

Yes get the Discourse Greek NT

Yes get the Discourse Grammar NT

and Yes get the Discourse Workshop Videos when they go on Prepub

Steve does a great job of help you to identify things aspects of the text you might otherwise miss because you didn't know they were there, or sometimes you overlook because they are so obvious. By helping you to recognise the different devices a writer might use in the text it not only helps you to become a better reader of the text, but helps you to ask better questions of the text and can help you make a better writer because one you understand now these things work you can fine tune your own writing style.

There are a number of blogs which you can read using the following search to get more info:

Also have a look on Youtube as there are so futher videos there worth viewing.  Try the following search:

Ronald,

Absolutely. Here's a short review I wrote about it last year.

Ronald

I have used it extensively in Libronix where it was excellent. It's a marvellous tool. You can even search for the occurrence of a particular discourse device in a particular book or part of a book.

I have used it in Logos 4 Mac, but not as much yet. But it seems to work equally well.

In fact, on the basis of its usefulness in the New Testament, I have signed up for the PrePub for the Old Testament version. You can find it here: http://www.logos.com/products/prepub/details/6786

Alan,

Thanks for the additional information.  I will definitely get both resources.

I had Greek 20+ years ago in college and have forgotten most of what I learned.  I am now in the process of relearning it - but this time with no pressure of a grade - just for my own personal enjoyment.

Ron

Thanks for sharing your review Alan.  If you don't mind I'll keep that bookmarked for future reference.

Andrew, there is an excerpt of the grammar available at www.ntdiscourse.org/publications. If you search the tag cloud you should find some helpful introductory posts as well. Thanks for your interest.
