Item description for New Testament Greek: A Beginning and Intermediate Grammar [With CDROM] by James Allen Hewett, C. Michael Robbins & Steven R. Johnson...
Overview Since its publication in 1986, the first edition of James Hewett's New Testament Greek: A Beginning and Intermediate Grammar has been a mainstay for students in their first year of biblical Greek study. With the revised edition, this trusted resource has just gotten better. Thoroughly rewritten by scholars currently teaching beginning and intermediate Greek courses, this grammar systematically lays out the fundamentals of Greek grammar and syntax in understandable language. Complex Greek concepts are explained in terms of familiar English grammar. Each concept is then illustrated with multiple examples directly from the New Testament text. Vocabulary lists based on New Testament word frequency enable students to learn the most commonly used words first. Helpful translation exercises at the end of each chapter enable teachers and students to gauge progress in learning the language. Optional advanced sections take students a step beyond the concepts typically learned in first-year Greek. Other new features in the revised edition include: * a chapter introducing students to the basic components of language; * a chapter orienting learners to discussions in contemporary linguistics and how languages communicate meaning; * revised Greek-to-English exercises supplemented with optional English-to-Greek exercises; * expanded reference appendices that include summary word charts, complete Greek-to-English and English-to-Greek vocabulary lists, and a list of principal parts of common verbs; * a CD-Rom providing a searchable PDF of the entire book, a password-protected key to the exercises, and a package of Greek software tools designed to assist with reading and pronouncing Greek words, vocabulary mastery, and verb form identification.

Reviews - What do customers think about New Testament Greek: A Beginning and Intermediate Grammar?
Certainly One of the Best Mar 19, 2010
I have had almost all of the modern grammars and some old ones too, and this one is one of the best. There is no need to get bogged down with these series (or sets) that teach NT Greek. A decent grammar like this one, A Greek NT, a Bauers Lexicon, and a few other reference books is what you need, not a relatively endless dependence on teaching materials published by you know who. Get a good grammar like this one, some reference books, and dig in. Dealing with the NT text is the way to learn NT Greek.
Excellent text! Nov 20, 2009
I've had 2 years of Homeric Greek and 1 of New Testament Greek. I completed my schooling in 1996 and have not kept up with my studies until recently. I am reading this book as a refresher and I am astounded at how well it helps me to bring together what I learned in the past. It focuses on grammar and how to pull together all the little 'rules' into a holistic survey. I would recommend it to any serious student of the Greek language. A key to the exercises is also available so that a student, studying on his/her own, can check his/her work for accuracy.
