A Grammar for New Testament Greek will serve as a concise, authoritative introduction to the study of the language in which the New Testament was written. Written with a variety of learning contexts in mind, this volume will be an essential tool to those whose study of Greek will take place in the classroom, and to those who wish to refresh their knowledge of the language by private study.
This book has many invaluable features. The arrangement of the chapters was designed to introduce students to the distinction between the present and the aorist tenses, as well as acquaint them with special forms such as the "-mi" verbs, early on in the grammar. The vocabulary has been oriented more closely to the frequency with which words appear in the New Testament, highlighting certain common New Testament terms. A thorough reference section at the end of the book makes the book helpful to those who wish to look up grammatical forms as they read and translate the Greek New Testament. There is a complete discussion of the different elements of Greek grammar, and how they convey meaning. The exercises draw closely on the Greek text of the New Testament in their choice, not only of vocabulary, but of word order and phrasing as well. The purpose is to acquaint students, as early as possible, with the kind of vocabulary and sentence structure that they will encounter in the Greek New Testament.
