Publishers Description 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

Reviews - What do customers think about Learn to Read New Testament Greek?
this is being updated.. Nov 1, 2007
Dr Black just announced on his blog that he sent in his revision of Learn to Read New Testament Greek to his publisher - he asked for suggested revisions from his blog readers and took them to heart - I trust the new edition will be a great improvement and benefit for those wanting to learn NT Greek! Be on the look out for the new edition in the coming year! Enjoy!
second only to Mounces BBG, but then it might even be just as good. Oct 25, 2007
Next to Bill Mounce's BBG, this has to be the best learning aid I have found to date when it comes to it's topic. It is fairly easy for the GED class individual. In other words, those of us with degrees from the school of hard knocks and who can't necessarily afford or don't have the time for formal schooling concerning such.
Totally Excellent Oct 25, 2005
This book is Excellent as an aid in learning NT Greek. Coupled with an excellent prophessor, one will be reading and writing NT Greek in no time!!
good Oct 3, 2005
It is a good source with which to learn Greek, but the author makes up his own sentences to give examples of the material being learned...it might be better to find a source that uses examples straight from the Biblical text instead
Fast shipping....Nice Book...No Problems. Sep 17, 2005
