This work was created by Friedrich Blass, professor of classical philology at the University of Halle-Wittenberg, and was continued after his death by Albert Debrunner, professor of Indo-European and classical philology at the University of Bern until his retirement in 1954. The grammar has passed through ten editions from 1896 to 1960.

Robert W. Funk, in translating this long-established classic, has also revised it and, in doing so, has incorporated the notes which Professor Debrunner had prepared for a new German edition on which he was working at the time of his death in 1958. Dr. Funk has also had the co-operation of leading British, Continental, and American scholars. The translation places in the hands of English-speaking students a book that belongs in their libraries and in the libraries of every theologian, philologist and pastor alongside the Gingrich-Danker Greek-English Lexicon.

This grammar sets the Greek of the New Testament in the context of Hellenistic Greek and compares and contrasts it with the classical norms. It relates to the New Testament language to its Semitic background, to Greek dialects, and to Latin and has been kept fully abreast of latest developments and manuscript discoveries. It is at no point exclusively dependent on modern editions of the Greek New Testament text but considers variant readings wherever they are significant. It is designed to compress the greatest amount of information into the smallest amount of space consistent with clarity. There are subsections discussing difficult or disputed points and copious citations of primary texts in addition to generous bibliographies for those who wish to pursue specific items further.

Accordance's long-awaited release of the BDF Grammar now brings the two most standard reference works (along the BDAG Lexicon) to the fingertips of users. The text of BDF is fully tagged, meaning that users can enter search parameters specifically for titles, section number, English content, Scripture reference, Greek content, Hebrew content, transliteration, page numbers, and even manuscripts mentioned in the Grammar. A sufficient number of hyperlinks is included, meaning that simply hovering over any hyperlink such as an abbreviation, a reference to another section of the Grammar, or a biblical citation allows the reader, via the instant details window, to view the full title of the publication, the referenced section elsewhere in the Grammar, the referenced verse in Greek or Hebrew or English (whichever the user has set in the Preferences menu), etc. This alone saves an immense amount of time in flipping pages of various books/editions or even reading and then typing a reference i ...

It is hoped (and has been hinted at by Accordance staff in the user forums) that hyperlinks to other sources also available in Accordance, such as A. T. Robertson's Grammar, will be added in the future. To users who already own both reference works in print, but especially to those who do not, the benefits mentioned above of owning BDF as an Accordance module far outweigh its cost. The user is immediately rewarded in heightened research productivity and facility.
