Item description for Interlinear for the Rest of Us: The Reverse Interlinear for New Testament Word Studies by William D. Mounce...
Overview This book makes the Greek New Testament and word studies based on it easily accessible to everyone, all in one volume.
Publishers Description Most interlinear Bibles are superb resources for Greek students. But what about the rest of us who don't know Greek?Here is the answer. While other interlinear Bibles assume that you know Greek. Interlinear for the Rest of Us assumes that you don't, or that you've forgotten much of what you once knew. Designed for busy pastors, Sunday school teachers, and anyone who wants a practical tool for studying the Scriptures, this interlinear makes reading easy by flip-flopping the usual order of appearance. It uses the English text as the main text rather than the Greek, so there is absolutely no confusion about the meaning of what you're reading. Discover the Greek words behind the English translation. Conduct your own word studies using Greek word study books---without knowing Greek.Interlinear for the Rest of Us offers these features: Interlinear passages appear in a 'staff' with four interrelated lines (see excerpt). From top to bottom, the lines are: English text in New International Version Corresponding Greek words Parsing information Goodrick-Kohlenberger numbers Greek text in normal Greek order at the bottom of the page, underneath the interlinear section Mounce's Greek-English Dictionary at the back of this volume, keyed to both Goodrick-Kohlenberger and Strong's numbering systems Ideal for use with Greek for the Rest of Us and other Greek study tools

Dissapointment May 26, 2010
Dont bother buying this book, Its the NIV with Greek below . I was expecting a more literal version of the bible but insted i got This. Dont waste your time with this book. But If NIV is your version of the bible, this might appeal to you
To Learn "KOINE" Nov 11, 2009
I really like this New Testament, Interlinear reversed. I really like the General Guidelines in the front of the book which explains how some words translate, some transliterate and also some of the troublesome constructions (including idioms).
One thing I don't really care for is the author's choice of using the NIV paragraphings and section names, My personal favorite is the NASB.
I do like the explanations of parsing codes, though I still don't fully understand it, It's like piano. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE.
Another dislike is the thin pages, almost like rice paper. This is more than a New Testament, this is a Study Book, and I like to make notes in my books, highlight and write in pen (so I can see it). Several places where I wrote have bled through and as you know, that makes the other side of the page unlegible.
As you can see, I do really like this and it goes well with the text book w/CD I also have. They make a great duo to learn basic greek.
Hope this helps you!
Great Interlinear! May 6, 2009
Dr Mounce just loves teaching greek and this book continues to show it. The size is larger then I expected, but it was very welcome. The type is very clear, most interlinears cheat with small fonts.
I'd recommend this book for all.

Excellent resource for the serious Bible student Aug 26, 2008
This volume is housed in the ESSENTIAL BOOKS section of my library. There are several editions of the Interlinear NT, but I find this book to be one of the best. When making comparisons between the English used and the Greek of the NT times, there are many ways that Greek expounds on key words with greater clarity and meaning not found in the English language. This volume is a great INVESTMENT for the Bible student who desires to see and understand beyond the obvious.
