Overview

An academic staple updated for the first time in fifteen years, David Alan Black's user-friendly introduction to New Testament Greek keeps discussion of grammar as non-technical as possible. The simplified explanations, basic vocabularies, and abundant exercises are designed to prepare the student for subsequent practical courses in exegesis, while the linguistic emphasis lays the groundwork for later courses in grammar. Revisions to this third edition include updated discussions and scholarship, further back matter vocabulary references, and additional appendices.

"A streamlined introductory grammar that will prove popular in the classroom."

Murray J. Harris, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"Clear charts, clear examples, clear discussion—what more could one want from a beginning grammar!"

Darrell L. Bock, Dallas Theological Seminary

" . . . combines the strengths of a fairly traditional sequence of topics, in generally manageable chunks with clear explanations fully abreast of modern linguistics."

Craig L. Blomberg, Denver Seminary

"Pedagogically conceived, linguistically informed, hermeneutically sensitive, biblically focused—unique among beginning grammars. It sets a new standard."

Robert Yarbrough, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

This user-friendly introduction to New Testament Greek keeps discussion of grammar as non-technical as possible. Black provides tools and exercises for bringing the student to the experience of reading from the Greek New Testament after just 17 lessons. Valuable for Bible students and pastors.

    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.

    Greek fonts to small to see

    The greek fonts are way to small to see in fact on my Nook you cannot make some of them out period. Publisher needs to fix this, Barnes and Noble needs to refund my money.
