A Summer Greek Reader is the first practical text specifically designed to help students of introductory Greek Strengthen their grasp of the essentials over the summer. By spending just twenty minutes a day, students not only maintain when they've learned in their first-year class, but will also build their working vocabulary and gain practice with extended Greek New Testament passages.This volume is perfect for students who want to begin reading complete passages of the Greek New Testament while avoiding the complexities encountered in intermediate and advanced studies.

This is a book designed for students who have just completed first year Greek to maintain their Greek over the summer. They will not build their knowledge of Greek grammar as taught in Mounce, only keep using it. The only new thing they will do is learn vocabulary words (those that occur 20 to 49 times in the NT and are not footnoted in the Graded Reader). Each of twelve sections (all from the Gospels and 1 John) are divided up into six smaller units for daily working on the text; students are encouraged to parse several words in each section. By the time they return to school in September, they will be ready for the Graded Reader, without the professor having to do remedial Greek first.
