Publisher's Description

A Grammar for New Testament Greek will serve as a concise, authoritative introduction to the study of the language in which the New Testament was written. Written with a variety of learning contexts in mind, this volume will be an essential tool to those whose study of Greek will take place in the classroom, and to those who wish to refresh their knowledge of the language by private study.

This book has many invaluable features. The arrangement of the chapters was designed to introduce students to the distinction between the present and the aorist tenses, as well as acquaint them with special forms such as the "-mi" verbs, early on in the grammar. The vocabulary has been oriented more closely to the frequency with which words appear in the New Testament, highlighting certain common New Testament terms. A thorough reference section at the end of the book makes the book helpful to those who wish to look up grammatical forms as they read and translate the Greek New Testament. There is a complete discussion of the different elements of Greek grammar, and how they convey meaning. The exercises draw closely on the Greek text of the New Testament in their choice, not only of vocabulary, but of word order and phrasing as well. The purpose is to acquaint students, as early as possible, with the kind of vocabulary and sentence structure that they will encounter in the Greek New Testament.

    I'd rather recommend David Allen Black's Learn to Read New Testament Greek. It's just a better text.

    Overall, this text is sufficient in teaching the skills and tools necessary to understand and read New Testament Greek. I was actually instructed using James Efird's text (with the same title). So I was able to make a few comparisons. In Adam's text, all of the info needed to read Koine Greek is there, but it is not always presented in the best manner or order. Some irregularities(for instance - of verbs) are presented too early and my friends & I found that confusing. At times, too much information is crammed into a chapter. And more often than not a sufficient amount of examples are not present in each chapter. There are plenty of exercises, which provides a benifit, and then again does not. For a Pre-Seminary student (or any other student for that matter) who is not only studying Greek, he/she may have many other subjects to prepare for and the abundance of exercises may be too over-whellming as a homework assignment. I did like the idea of taking exercises straight out of Scripture, but the extra vocab and difficulty was too much at many times. There also is no vocabulary section in the book. To wrap this up, I always wanted to state that there was a lack of emphasis on accents...of course many teachers don't stress that in class. Even though I've been harsh, the book does provide the necessary means to learns New Testament Greek and read the original text. From my experience as a student, tutor, and teacher, I've had the opportunity to compare and contrast. I prefer Efird's text and wish it had not gone out of print. But this text will suffice.
