Reviews - What do customers think about A Concise Exegetical Grammar of New Testament Greek?
Very clear and concise Aug 13, 2000
As a teacher of Latin and Greek at a German high school I cannot recommend this grammar strongly enough to anybody who wants to read the New Testament.It is reliable, clearly structured and focuses very precisely on all the aspects of the system of Greek morphemes that a student needs to know. I have recommended this book to my students of New Testament Greek and they agree.May it help to spread His word.
this book is awful! Jul 23, 2000
like the other person said it looks like the first draft right out of the guys typewriter! i took a year of greek and this isnt helpful-the way its organized you cant use it for fast reference. the guy cant even write complete sentences.
The right book for the right job Jul 11, 2000
The previous reviewer misunderstood the purpose of Greenlee's book. This purpose of this grammer is to serve as a quick reference for those who are already properly trained in Greek, not to train those who are not.
If you have already studied Greek for at least one year, I think you will find this book to be an excellent resource when you are trying to remember the various aspects of the Genative case or the uses of the prepostion "epi."
I keep this book with my Greek NT and find it to be invaluable. I recommend it highly
Concise isn't quite the word Jun 14, 2000
This book will not serve you well, even as a quick reference.Being designed (according to the publisher) "for the needs ofstudents who have completed a course in elementary New Testament Greek," it assumes too much knowledge on the part of the reader. So much so, in fact, that should one possess the knowledge this book assumes, one would not have need of the book at all. It is concise to the point of being obscure on points that are really quite simple. To the uninitiated, most of the book will be gibberish. To the specialist or advancing student, it will be inadequate. Page layout and type quality are less than agreeable to the eyes. The Greek typeface is a thin typewriter (monospaced) script not unlike Courier New, with accents, breathing marks, and iota subscripts typed over with a different script entirely. Grave accents look like ink blots, and all of the underlining in the book seems to have been done by hand. All in all a highly unprofessional text. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra money for John Wenhams superb "The Elements of New Testament Greek." It is more complete, more sound, and much more lasting. The introductory refresher on English Grammar is very helpful.
