A beginner's textbook which presents all of the grammar necessary for a person to begin reading the Greek New Testament, and which makes the fullest use of the insights into language function and language learning which have come from the development of Linguistic Science. Special features of this approach to learning New Testament Greek:
The aim throughout is to prepare a person to be able to actually read the Greek New Testament as distinct from merely learning enough Greek to pass an examination. Therefore the emphasis is upon gaining an understanding of the basic functional grammar of the language, rather than upon the memorizing of irregular verb forms or the rote learning of lists of vocabulary- vocabulary is indeed to be learnt, but in context, at the point of use
The necessary grammar is divided into ten units, in which it is presented in a systematic way that enables the student to proceed from the introductory to the more difficult. These units or lessons can be taken at the rate of one per day in an accelerated, two-week fulltime course, or at the rate of one per week over ten weeks, or one per fortnight over twenty weeks, according to the tutor's choice and the time which the students have available. This approach allows for maximum flexibility in how, and how quickly, the material is presented in a classroom situation - if adequate time is provided each week, a class can reach the point of commencing work on straight-forward New Testament text (such as Mark, John, or 1 John) after one semester's work.
