Overview An understanding of the New Testament's original language pays rich dividends to those who want more out of the Bible. But few laypersons have a spare year or more to learn Greek in a formal academic setting. In this study guide, Macnair uses the same innovative, non-technical methods that successfully jump-start today's "English as a Second Language" learners.
Begin reading biblical Greek from the first lesson using lively, contemporary methods. This tool emphasizes developing reading skills rather than mastering technical grammar.

A Great Aid for Beginning and Furthering Greek Study Mar 20, 2000
I love this instructional book. MacNair is both sagacious and cunning in his prolific instruction on everything from learning basic pronouns and the 4 cases, to actually translating Biblical phrases. All the while, he intermingles a likeable sense of humor in a didactic way! I recommend this to everyone who wants to make their latest pursuit the learning of the Greek language and it's peculiarities. On a critical note, I do not approve or accept the way that MacNair still attaches the disgusting, yet traditional doctrine of the trinity on certain areas in the book. Why, when one closely examines the sentence structure in the original Greek, such things have to be dismissed. Such things were not the thoughts that Bible writers wanted to convey.
Oh yes you can! Jul 23, 1998
I have tried 4 other books on Koine Greek (New Testament Greek) before. I continued in my persuit to find a book like this. Ian McNair does an outstanding job of teaching the lanuage fast and understandably. Now I can't say 'It's Greek to me.'
Thinking that a second lanuage is to hard to learn is no longer a valid excuse. Ian says, Oh yes you can! And to prove it, he wrote this book.
