Conspicuously absent from Mr. Woodruf's list is "Sit, Walk, Stand" by
Watchman Nee. He doesn't appeal to the Greek much but the tiny book speaks

As to the Greek, this seems a good time to bring up Eph 2:8


These are some common renderings:

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from
yourselves, it is the gift of God--
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own
doing, it is the gift of God--
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is
the gift of God:
For ye are saved by grace, through faith; and this not of yourselves; it is
God's gift:
for by grace ye are having been saved, through faith, and this not of you --
of God the gift,

It seems to me that it ought to read:

   "In grace are you, having been saved through faith"
