Constantine R. Campbell continues the work begun in his previous volume, Verbal Aspect, the Indicative Mood, and Narrative: Soundings in the Greek of the New Testament. In this book, he investigates the function of verbal aspect in non-indicative Greek verbs, which are of great significance for the translation and exegesis of Biblical texts. Campbell demonstrates that the model developed in his first volume provides strong power of explanation for the workings of non-indicative verbs, and challenges some of the conclusions reached by previous scholarship.

«Campbell’s lucid volume explores the various ways in which verbal aspect functions outside the indicative mood within New Testament Greek. Together with his earlier work on verbal aspect and the indicative mood, this companion volume provides an innovative paradigm for understanding the verbal system of the Greek New Testament. Interpreters will find that this approach challenges and reassesses earlier explanations and conclusions, provides fresh insights into many New Testament texts and often presents firmer grounds for making exegetical decisions. This is an important tool for serious students of the Greek New Testament.» (Peter T. O’Brien, Senior Research Fellow, Moore Theological College, Sydney, Australia)
«As with his previous book, ‘Verbal Aspect, the Indicative Mood, and Narrative’, Campbell has placed students of the Greek of the New Testament in his debt. His current study, complementary to the earlier volume, traces the significance of verbal aspect in the non-indicative moods, here demonstrating that aspect in these forms functions primarily at the clause level. The clear differentiation between semantics and pragmatics, avoiding the illegitimate attribution of pragmatic ‘Aktionsart’ values to semantic aspect features, is a distinguishing feature of this study. I commend it highly for careful study.» (Rodney J. Decker, Professor of New Testament and Greek, Baptist Bible Seminary, Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania)
