Thursday afternoon at ETS was much more relaxed for me. I spent the better part of the time at the book tables, looking for new commentaries and notable works on biblical studies. I also connected with a DTS ThM student who was really encouraged by the atmosphere of dialogue and exchange at the conference. Two books that caught my eye:
Greg Beale's new biblical theology of the New Testament, published by Baker. This looks comprehensive and deep, a solid contribution to the topic.
Steve Runge's Discourse Grammar of the New Testament, published by Hendrickson. This appears to make discourse grammar more readily accessible than other works.
