Product Description

Though there are currently a number of texts for teaching biblical Greek, most suffer from assumptions that directly impact the student. Written with these flaws in mind, A Primer of Biblical Greek by N. Clayton Croy offers an effective, effecient, single-volume introduction to biblical Greek that has proven successful in classrooms around the country.

This volume takes a primarily deductive approach to teaching biblical Greek and makes its own foundational assumption that students have no prior knowledge of the language. Divided into 32 separate lessons, each containing a generous number of exercises, the text leads students from the Greek alphabet to a working understanding of the language of the Septuagint and the New Testament.

Special features of A Primer of Biblical Greek:

  • An abundance of exercises--Each lesson includes practice sentences taken from the Septuagint and the New Testament as well as original sentences, and very challenging English-to-Greek translation excercises.
  • Concise but accurate grammatical explanations: Great care has been taken to insure that grammatical explanations are clear, correct, and succinct. In particular, the Greek participle receives a fuller-than-usual treatment.
  • A natural flowing order of presentation: Material is presented according to the natural structure of Greek and the traditional terminology of grammarians. Declensions and principal parts, for example, are presented in numerical order.
  • Inclusive language: The book uses inclusive language for human beings throughout.
  • Helpful appendixes for quick reference: Included at the back of the book are the Greek paradigms, Greek-to-English vocabulary, English-to-Greek vocabulary, and a bibliography for further study.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of Hebrew Scriptures
"Offers stimulating and insightful discussions of various aspects of the study of Isaiah. . . . This collection of essays presents a window into the current state of research concerning Isaiah, particularly with regard to questions of the book's formation, and has much to offer to both students and scholars."

Religious Studies Review
"This new textbook provides a traditional presentation of beginning Greek grammar ideally suited for college and seminary courses. . . The abundance and variety of exercises provide flexibility for use with different class formats and teaching styles and prevent students' familiarity with the NT from becoming a hindrance . . . A strong contender for instructors unhappy with outdated and idiosyncratic grammars."

Review of Biblical Literature
"This may be the best introductory text published in recent years. In terms of progression through the material, quality of explanatory examples of verbal constructions, and usefulness of the homework exercises, this book is unsurpassed."

The Bible Today
"For the serious student of the New Testament, learning some amount of biblical Greek is a necessity. This new textbook is a very helpful tool for that task. Designed for beginning students in biblical Greek at the college or seminary level, it offers in a clear and effective manner a step-by-step procedure for learning the language. Vocabulary lists and exercises are drawn from the New Testament and the Septuagint so that from the outset the student has the satisfaction of reading from the biblical texts themselves."

New Testament Abstracts
"Divided into thirty-two lessons (with vocabulary and exercises), this introductory textbook seeks to lead college and seminary students from the Greek alphabet to a working knowledge of the language of the Septuagint and the NT. Paradigms and vocabulary lists are included. The book is adaptable for use in full-year, semester-long, and summer intensive courses, chiefly by selective assignment of exercises."
