Basics of the Biblical Greek is an entirely new, integrated approach to teaching and learning New Testament Greek. It makes learning Greek a natural process and shows from the very beginning how an understanding of Greek helps in understanding the New Testament. Basics of Biblical Greek: combines the best of the deductive and the inductive approaches, explains the basics of English grammar before teaching Greek grammar, uses from the very beginning parts of verses from the New Testament instead of "made-up" exercises, includes at the beginning of every lesson a brief devotional, written by a well-known New Testament scholar, that demonstrates how the principles taught in the lesson apply directly to an understanding of the biblical text, is the most popular first-year Greek course used in colleges and seminaries today, comes with an interactive study aid CD-ROM, containing an eight-minute greeting from the author and the fun, helpful, and graphical vocabulary-memorizing program "Learning the Basics of Biblical Greek" (runs on Power Mac and Windows 95), where you can hear Greek words pronounced and sung in more than 200 familiar hymns. The CD-ROM also contains the powerful Greek vocabulary-drilling programs Flashworks and Parseworks from Teknia Language Tools (runs on Macintosh and Windows 3.1 and 95). A separate workbook is also available.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“As a linguist and former Wycliffe translator, Mounce’s Basics of Biblical Greek has been my preferred textbook for 15 years, both in the classroom and online. His systemic, morphological approach helps students visualize important elements that parts of speech share, instead of merely struggle with how they differ. Consequently, he has somewhat reduced rote memory work. His (optional) separation of the noun system from the verb system reduces confusion on key endings. His workbook is equally impressive, quickly engaging and motivating students with translating actual Bible verses---even some of the LXX and the Fathers. I highly recommend it!' Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary---Charlotte -- Joel Harlow

“One factor that makes Basics of Biblical Greek a superior textbook for teaching the elements of Greek is the additional resources that are available to accompany the textbook. I have found that for students learning Greek for the first time the companion resources become essential tools for learning. Additional resources such as the workbook, vocabulary cards, pronunciation assistance, laminated study guide, and free mini-lectures by Bill Mounce---just to name a few---support what I am doing in the classroom.” North Park University -- Joel Willitts
