    Greek is a robust language, author does excellent job diving in to it

    I've heard the argument for years about which is the better version of the Bible. I still have some folks in my church that think it is sacrilegious to read anything but KJV. Personally I had trouble understanding KJV, and embraced other translations.

    Now in my later years, I have had the desire to go back to the Greek (and Hebrew) and decide for myself what the scriptures say. Our pastor is teaching a 14 week class in Greek, with this as the text.

    The author obviously understands the subject matter. Black dives into all of the ways that the Greeks twist around wording and the endings that go with the base Greek words. However for a beginner, like myself, I feel this book is written on a 20,000 foot level. It would be fine as a refresher for someone who has learned Greek in the past, but quite difficult as a beginner's text.

    It's not a bad book, but any means, just difficult for this beginner. I feel that the beginner needs more exercises and maybe an answer key located elsewhere in the book.

    I have had some issues with the Greek text, on the Nook you can increase the English text size, but the Greek can not, thus making it hard to see. I really wish I had purchased the hardback version.

    To earn a 5 star rating from me, the Greek text needs to be able to be easily increased. I feel there needs to be more exercises with lower difficulty, and answer keys. Don't take out the hard exercises, just add some more simplier exercises to what he has.
