Product Description

Many students have forgotten, or never learned, the basic grammatical concepts needed for studying Biblical Greek. Explanations of these concepts in Greek grammar textbooks are either too skimpy or too complex. This book fills this gap. In this complement to standard classroom grammars, veteran language instructor and scholar Gary Long revisits English grammar in order to teach more effectively concepts that are specific to biblical Greek. Arranged to supplement teaching grammars, each chapter takes up individual concepts, first explaining how the concept works in English, then illustrating its use in koine Greek. Abundant English and Greek examples illustrate each concept, most of them visually analyzed. Glosses and translations help students grasp the Greek examples.

Publisher's Description

Bridging the Grammar Gap

Voice, tense, mood, participles . . . learning biblical Greek is tough enough with a firm grasp of the building blocks of English and daunting to those without. But that's just where many first-year students are. Through many years in the classroom, veteran language instructor Gary Long has learned that it's in the first semester that many students get bogged down in grammatical basics. Soon confidence, morale--and then grades--start to slip.

A growing number of students have forgotten, or never learned, the fundamental grammatical concepts needed for studying Biblical Greek. Explanations of these concepts in standard Greek textbooks are either too skimpy or too complex. This practical resource will help.

Written for learners with little or no formal study of grammar, this invaluable complement to standard classroom textbooks clarifies English grammar in order to more effectively teach concepts that are specific to New Testament Greek. Arranged to supplement teaching grammars, each chapter takes up individual concepts, first explaining how the concept works in English, then illustrating its use in biblical Greek.

Abundant English and Greek examples illustrate each concept, most of them visually analyzed. Glossaries and translations help students comprehend the Greek words in each example.
