Verbal aspect is a significant element to be considered when interpreting a number of New Testament texts. This book surveys ways in which verbal aspect has been treated in the past century, and discusses what aspect is and how it functions in New Testament Greek. It provides a comprehensive, up-to-date analysis of the aspects of present, aorist, and perfect in New Testament Greek, and pulls together the results of research from a wide variety of linguistic studies. In his study Dr Fanning analyses the specific ways in which the aspects combine with linguistic and contextual features to produce various secondary meanings. He cites extensive sections of New Testament Greek as illustrative evidence, thus presenting a new approach which is a significant improvement on previous treatments and which will prove invaluable to interpreters of New Testament texts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It is obviously a work for specialists, clearly written, and could be followed by anyone interested in the grammatical details of the Greek New Testament. The wealth of excerpts make it a useful reference work in New Testament exegesis. * Robert Morgan, Linacre College, Oxford, Theological Book Review, Vol. 3, No.2, January 1991 *
He has produced an outstanding account of aspect in New Testament Greek; those who agree with him are encouraged to refine his analysis; while those who desagree are challenged to produce an alternative that is as rich and insightful. * Bernard Comrie, University of Southern California *
Dr Fanning has placed us in his debt with this masterly study... of what he prefers to call `verbal aspect'... F. exhibits exceptional thoroughness. The book is pleasing in both English and Greek type-founts, misprints are few, the bibliography is impressive, the indexes are good, and, happily, the footnotes are footnotes. * A.R. Birley, The Classical Review, vol XLI, no 2, 1991. *
For his having revitalized New Testament grammatical study in one significant area we express our admiration and thanks. I suspect that once the general theme of the book has been understood, it will be used as a reference book by those who are attentive to aspect and tense in their reading of the Greek text. The index of Biblical passages will therefore be the main entree to the rich discussions and descriptions preceding it. * J.K. Elliott, Novum Testamentum XXXIV, 1 (1992) *
A comprehensive study of aspect based upon a large corpus of evidence and taking account of the extensive modern literature that has accumulated on the topic is highly welcome. A brief summary of this nature cannot do full justice to the rich collection of material and the comprehensive nature of the discussion found in this book. Particularly worthy of mention are the discussions of the lexical nature of certain verbs. * David Bain, University of Manchester *
This book contains much to interest and instruct. Dr Fanning gives expert guidance through a maze of technical terms in at least four languages ... the argument and presentation are clear and systematic throughout the book, and the way is enlivened by stimulating comments on illustrative passages. * G.M. Styler, Journal of Theological Studies, Vol. 44, No. 1, April 1993 *
invaluable to teachers of Greek NT ... This highly technical book belongs in reference libraries wherever Greek is taught. * Robert F. Hull, Jr. Emmanuel School of Religion, Johnson City, Religious Studies Review, Volume 19, Number 3 / July 1993 *
