In Discourse Grammar of the Greek New Testament, Steve Runge introduces a function-based approach to language, exploring New Testament Greek grammatical conventions based upon the discourse functions they accomplish. Runge's approach has less to do with the specifics of language and more to do with how humans are wired to process it.

This volume does not reinvent previous grammars or supplant previous work on the New Testament. Instead, Runge reviews, clarifies and provides a unified description of each of the discourse features. Each of the 18 chapters contains:
- A complete discourse explanation
- An introduction and overview for each discourse function, and an explanation of that function in easy-to-understand language
- Numerous examples of how that particular discourse function is used in the Greek New Testament
- A section of application
- Suggested reading list for continued learning and additional research
- Careful research, with citation to both Greek grammars and linguistic literature
