Dear Elizabeth,

You said,

"NT vs. OT lexical semantic theory
> Last night I was looking over an article on NT lexical semantics by

> conversant with recent work in semantics. Most of his material
> appeared to be borrowed from books by J.P.Louw, D.Carson, and
> M.Silva.  All of these works are over 20 years old. Why is it that
> the semitic scholars are so far ahead of the NT Greek scholars? Case

Bryant's Response:
Since I have signed up for various notifications from various publishers on new
publications, I thought you might like this new one.
The following book is due out in mid-November, 2007. I attached the URL so that
you can check out the excerpt. The Introduction of the book which is excerpted
for your perusal is very good; and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND that a person read
it FIRST before going into the rest of the book since it gives the information
for the book's outline, arrangement, methodology, etc.

Description: Readers of the New Testament often encounter quotes or allusions to
the Old Testament that may be unfamiliar or obscure. In this volume, G. K. Beale
and D. A. Carson have brought together a distinguished team of scholars to
isolate, catalog, and comment on both the obvious Old Testament quotations and
the more subtle allusions found in the New Testament. The result is a
comprehensive commentary on the Old Testament references that appear from
Matthew through Revelation. It is a vital resource for the reference library of
every student of the New Testament.
