He is coeditor of numerous books including The Sermon on the Mount Through the Centuries, Reading Romans Through the Centuries: From the Early Church to Karl Barth and The Decalogue Through the Centuries: From the Hebrew Scriptures to Benedict XIV. Greenman is a member of the Society of Christian Ethics and the American Academy of Religion.

Review:

"This volume offers a readable and well-rounded treatise on Christian spiritual formation from many perspectives and faith traditions. In a world awash with confusion related to authentic spirituality and the church divesting its voice in the discussion, Life in the Spirit provides a refreshing call to renew our Christian roots, recommit to spiritual formations, and prepare for our unprecedented mission in the world." (Diane J. Chandler, Pneuma, 33 (2011))

"A good starting point for opening up the very relevant issue of where does spiritual formation fit within the evangelical church and the church at large." (Peter Bentley, CMS-Victoria Inc., 2010)
