Product Description

Black's classic 17-lesson introduction, now updated for the first time in fifteen years enables beginning students to understand New Testament Greek, use commentaries and other tools based on the Greek text, and discover the scintillating life of study in the Greek New Testament. Black does an oustanding job of describing and teaching the reader about technical elements without assuming they are understood. Revisions include updated scholarship, enhanced vocabulary references, and additional appendices. Ideal for classroom or, unlike most grammars, for individual use.

Publisher's Description

An academic staple updated for the first time in fifteen years, David Alan Black's user-friendly introduction to New Testament Greek keeps discussion of grammar as non-technical as possible. The simplified explanations, basic vocabularies, and abundant exercises are designed to prepare the student for subsequent practical courses in exegesis, while the linguistic emphasis lays the groundwork for later courses in grammar. Revisions to this third edition include updated discussions and scholarship, further back matter vocabulary references, and additional appendices.

"A streamlined introductory grammar that will prove popular in the classroom."

Murray J. Harris, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"Clear charts, clear examples, clear discussion—what more could one want from a beginning grammar!"

Darrell L. Bock, Dallas Theological Seminary

" . . . combines the strengths of a fairly traditional sequence of topics, in generally manageable chunks with clear explanations fully abreast of modern linguistics."

Craig L. Blomberg, Denver Seminary

"Pedagogically conceived, linguistically informed, hermeneutically sensitive, biblically focused—unique among beginning grammars. It sets a new standard."

Robert Yarbrough, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

    I cannot recommend David Alan Black's "Learn to Read New Testament Greek" highly enough! This textbook is designed for those without prior linguistic training and is a truly no-nonsense approach to learning Koine, the language of the New Testament. The content is equivalent to a 1st year Greek course and by the end of the book you'll be able to read and understand the entire Gospel of John on your own. I also found it so encouraging to be reading and writing Greek sentences (albeit very simple ones) by just the fourth chapter.

    A workbook is also available, but it's not of much use since the publisher seems to only give the answer key to institutions. With the key, it would provide valuable extra practice in applying each lesson.

    The entire course is available as DVD lectures taught by Dr. Black himself from his website.

    I have been studying with this text on my own and have found it perfect for self-study. A good friend of mine has also used it to teach Greek classes at his church.

    If you want to learn NT Greek and have no prior knowledge of the language, or even of how foreign languages work, then this book will suit your perfectly. At the same time, the linguistic lessons are dispersed in short and practical explanations throughout the book, so someone with a linguistic background won't get bored and will be able to learn even faster as they connect his terminology with things they've already learned.
