Publishers Description Description: New Testament Greek Intermediate is the companion volume to New Testament Greek Primer. The Intermediate text reviews grammar, expands vocabulary, and exposes the student to more New Testament context. Grammar review intends to consolidate gains from the Primer, but deepens the discussion, adds more illustrative paradigms, and includes more syntax. Vocabulary acquisition expands the Primer's frequency base of 50 or more times down to a frequency of 15 or more times, including second aorist forms. This vocabulary acquisition is divided by frequency into seven vocabulary lists ready for seven vocabulary exams. The exercises have longer passages both to increase the student's translation stamina and to bring more contextualization to bear on the act of translation. In addition, the text includes informative illustrations and graphics, beautiful layout, full indexes, a glossary, charts, paradigms, and principal parts for even more usability. By the end of this text, the student is thoroughly prepared for Greek exegesis and advanced courses on Greek syntax. Endorsements: ""Gerald Stevens' 'New Testament Greek Intermediate' follows the time-honored deductive approach to learning second-year Koine Greek. In addition to reviewing morphology, Stevens introduces the student to second-year syntactical issues without overwhelming him with third-year, exegetical concepts. His explanations are exact with copious examples from the New Testament that underscore the concepts. The self-contained homework exercises from the New Testament eliminate the need for purchasing an additional workbook. Stevens' intermediate grammar is a natural sequel to his Primer, also published by Cascade Books. For the professor looking for a true, intermediate Greek grammar, Stevens' will not disappoint your expectations."" --CRAIG PRICE Associate Professor of New Testament and Greek, and Associate Dean of Online Learning, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary Stevens meets a special need with his New Testament Greek Intermediate grammar. The field is replete with introductory and advanced texts but few have addressed the needs of students in the middle. Stevens' text addresses that void, and no one has done it so well. This volume presents a readable, comprehensive overview of Greek grammar arranged topically, utilizing the latest research in linguistics, and there are ample exercises drawn from biblical texts marked by Stevens' pedagogical deftness. I highly recommend this text for students and teachers alike. -Robert A. Bryant, author of The Risen Crucified Christ in Galatians This student-friendly grammar masterfully guides students beyond basic Greek proficiency to translating an entire New Testament book. Students will welcome Stevens' clarity of presentation and his ability to engage them in the text. This volume both facilitates students' thorough review of Greek grammar as well as propels them forward to mastery of relevant nuances in translating the lingua franca of the early Christians. -Renate Viveen Hood, Associate Professor of Biblical Studies LeTourneau University Gerald Stevens' Greek Intermediate text provides a valuable bridge that enables students to make the transition from introductory Koine grammar to the more detailed study of New Testament syntax. The author's characteristic thoroughness is evident throughout. Integration of student assignments with the primary text ensures that students will apply the concepts as they are introduced, greatly enhancing student learning. The content and organization of the material ensures that students will continue to use this text as a reference as they pursue more advanced studies. -Richard Warren Johnson Associate Professor of Greek and New Testament East Texas Baptist University About the Contributor(s): Gerald L.

Reviews - What do customers think about New Testament Greek Intermediate: From Morphology to Translation?
A very readable grammatical book in biblical greek Dec 16, 2008
This is a book that bridges the gap between introductory Biblical Greek grammar and intermediate level. The title from morphology to translation is an appropriate one. Presentation is clear and the content is very readable. So, don't be scarred by the size of the book. Its two chapters in participles are excellent. Participles form a difficult subject acknowledged by all. The two chapters in participles covered by the book could well be described as the best among the intermediate level texts. Owning this book just for those two chapters pays back the purchase cost not to mention the good handle on the subject you will get after careful study of them.
