    This is one of my favorite Greek books I've ever read! I recommend that every professor of New Testament Greek assign this book as initial reading for Intermediate Greek classes.

    I would recommend every current and former student of the language to buy and read this book. This is because it motivates the reader so much to read Greek for fluency, meditation, application, and worship. If students take this book to heart, their elementary, intermediate, and advanced classes won't become mere academic exercises for grades. And their knowledge may not lead to an overly critical spirit when it comes to hearing NT sermons or reading books about the NT. Instead, these students might actually be mastered and transformed by the texts in their original language.

    The artistic design of the book is very similar to the beginner and intermediate Greek grammars offered by Baker (Decker and Mathewson/Emig). This is good, because all three have lovely designs. The font is very readable, and there is plenty of space in the margins for notes. Also, the book is very light and easy on the hands.

    Overall, the book was clear, encouraging, motivational, frequently insightful, and also thoroughly practical. One must make sure to read the footnotes for golden nuggets of information, especially resources for future reading. The writer also provides access to online materials that teach what he considered to be the more dense material in the book. Not every reader will agree with the "senses" of interpretation or some of the mystical aspects of meditation in the book, but this doesn't diminish the overall value of the book.

    I received a review copy from Baker, for which I would like to extend my thanksgiving here. It in no way influenced my thoughts toward the book. It really is this good.

    I bought this book from CBD a few months ago, and it arrived after some time. This is a fine book, a fine contribution to the study of Greek, for the Bible student, and for anyone. It is aimed at those who want to replenish their Greek, if it has lain a fallow field for a time, or to further grow it. I have employed the two prongs that he advocates, just plowing ahead and reading, and also taking one's time so that you get as best an understanding as you can from each word in a verse or passage. This book has gold to offer, in that it is much like you have a teacher or knowledgeable Hellophile good friend there to talk with and to offer encouragement.

    When I get further on in this book I will write a more decent review.

    I have to say I like this book a lot. I actually enjoyed the foreword and the introduction. Usually I feel like going to sleep when I read them. It whets your appetite for leaning Greek andfor his helps to come. He .
