After searching my Basics of Biblical Greek by Mounce recently to review myself on some basics, I came across this item on sale with CBD. Exceeded my expectations from the size, protective cover and content. Love it!
Greek does not come entirely natural to most of us. Even the late scholar, Robert W. Funk, the translator/reviser of the incredibly detailed Blass-Debrunner grammar, in the beginniing of his own "Beginning-Intermediate Grammar" descrbed his own need to typically have to review this or that element of biblical Greek when looking at a text. A compendium of basic grammatical and other information is a valuable thing and this is it.
For those of you who studied Mounce's "Basics of Biblical Greek," you will enjoy this text - it's exactly what I was looking for. It's a pocket size book with most of the contents of BBG condensed into a small, easy to read, and accessible reference grammar. Mounce's charts and paradigms from BBG reappear in this text, including his chart of tense forms. This compact guide has a lexicon which is colour coded which indicates words that appear fifty times or more in the NT. The book does not include an index, but you can easily find what you're looking for in the Table of Contents. Highly recommended only if you don't want to lug around BBG.
