Greek book Jan 24, 2008
Arrived very quickly in wonderful condition. My husband teaches a Greek class and he is happy with the book. I don't understand all this tagging and previewing that is taking up all kinds of my time to figure out. Just be happy that we were happy with the product, for goodness' sake.
My thoughts on Robertson's massice Grammar Nov 25, 2007
There are a lot of opinions on A.T.Robertson's massive Grammar. Let me say that I read every main Greek grammar there is about. I read D.Wallace's Greek Grammar 8 times through and studied thorougly. Dana and Mantey? About 15 times. E.D. Burton's moods and tenses- 9 times. I could go on but I would like to state that I read Robertson's massaive grammar through 5 times in the past 12 years as well as translating his examples. This grammar is not for the average Pastor but belongs to the teacher of advanced greek grammar as well as the scholar. This grammar takes a back seat to Blass's grammar yet I find it far better. D.Wallace often referred to Robertson in his excellent grammar but often does not give Robertson the proper credit. Once one has mastered the vocab of the Greek NT and worked through the basic grammars followed by Dana and Mantey then Richard Young then Wallace and the other intermediate works out there, then they will find Robertson's short grammar a help. This should be followed by the thorough reading of Robertson's large grammar. I think this book while somewhat dated still holds the field of the advanced Greek grammars of the NT. Any quest to master the Greek NT should take about 12 years of exacting work but it is well worth it. I do not see how this can be done without this valuable work of Robertson.
Still a useful book Sep 24, 2005
Even after 71 years, this grammar remains to be very useful. Though many things are ready to be revised, it still is the most elaborated grammar of New Testament Greek. The book provides a large amount of information and examples, referring as well to other major works, such as Blass, Moulton, ... I would not recommend this grammar to a student who starts learning New Testament Greek, since he will feel himself lost within the abiundance of material, but for the more experienced scholar, it still is a valuable tool.
A CUT ABOVE Sep 18, 2002
Very seldom in my life have I used the word genius about anyone, but if anyone deserves the title it is Robertson. This is not a book for beginners, Robertson does not translate his examples, which, by the way are elegant. I can tell from his references to him that Wallace respects his prowess in the Greek language to a great extent. His historical comments are clear, concise, and very infomative. This book is a treasure trove of information about greek and how to fine tune your understanding of every asoect of it. It's a good addition to your library, if for nothing else but to push you to keep learning more.

A treasure for those who study the Greek of the N.T. Jan 30, 2002
This book is recognized as a classic by Greek scholars the world over. This is not a book for someone who has no knoledge of Koine Greek, but is a valuable resource for understandling the grammar of the Koine Greek for those who know the difference between, say, the Present tense and the Aorist tense of a Greek verb. If you have a hankering to know how an infinitive might change a verb tense, then you will probably find it here. For those who do have some Greek background, it will enrich your research and may clarify many a difficult passage for you.
