Reviews - What do customers think about Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece (Greek Edition)?
Great product Oct 16, 2008
What can I say, it is a strait forward product but a very good one. I enjoy working from the Greek and this is a very good tool.
Completely Satisfied Customer Oct 15, 2008
This is my first purchase of any Greek Bible. I just started learning Greek and am taking a Greek class this Fall 2008. This version of the Greek Bible by Nestle-Aland has really helped me learn my alphabet, nouns, words, verbs and parsing. Also, the book itself is well structured physically with not-too-thin pages, strong spine and dark and legible print. My father is a pastor and also uses this Bible for his sermon preparations and studies. Thank you E. Nestle and B.& K. Aland!!
A good edition, if hidebound Apr 28, 2008
This edition of the Greek New Testament has what I would call a "reasonable text," but not an "excellent text." While the text is about as good as can be expected when following the Aland school of textual criticism, other scholarly approaches (a label which automatically excludes the "Majority Text" and "Textus Receptus" approaches) are possible and in some cases more useful. (See, for example, the insightful article "Remarks of an Outsider about [several Greek lexica] and Their Textual Basis" in the book _Biblical Greek Language and Lexicography_, ed. Bernard A. Taylor et al.) It is the uncritical acceptance of this Aland school that has led to the gratuitous "grade inflation" noted between the 3rd and 4th editions of the UBS Greek NT, which has the same Greek text as the NA 27. The more you gaze at your own navel, it seems, the better it looks, even if it hasn't changed a bit over the years. This hidebound quality of the UBS-NA text has led to some referring to it, tongue-in-cheek, as "the new Textus Receptus."
The Greek font used in this edition (I have the large print one) is easy to read; I have no complaints about it. I find the font of the UBS 3rd edition more beautiful, but that is a matter of personal taste. However, the font used in the UBS 4th edition is criminally ugly and vertigo-inducing. You may need to get it for the critical apparatus, but you will this NA 27 or UBS 3 for continuous reading. (The UBS edition aims to highlight variants significant for translation, while the NA edition aims to cover a larger number of variants with a more complex apparatus.)
If you are a newcomer to New Testament Greek, avoid the UBS 4th edition for continuous reading. If you can, get a used copy of the 3rd edition, which has a beautiful font. Otherwise, get this Nestle-Aland 27th edition. And best wishes in your studies! It _is_ possible to learn to read the Greek New Testament well, so don't lose heart if the early going is rough.
German Bible Society does it again Oct 7, 2007
There is merit in the idea of having a pocket-sized Greek New Testament to tote around with you at all times. Yet, every serious student of the GNT should also consider purchasing this large-print or "Grosdruck" edition. For an office or home copy, you cannot do better. The large print, excellent font, and quality paper make it comfortable to sit and read extended passages without eyestrain. The text-critical notes are also usably sized. Everything about this production speaks of dedication to quality on the part of the German Bible Society.
NA 27-always the best from Deutsche Gessellschaft Jun 7, 2007
The NA27 is exactly the same as the NA26, with one exception, the text is photo-mechanically enlarged. Like always the NA27 has scholia extensive enough to make a philologist drool. This edition has about a hundred pages in the back of minor variants! Highly reccomended over the USB, the American Bible Society is staffed with barbarians that can handle neither scholia nor a greek text without english section headings.
