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 through advanced 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 Greek-English dictionary containing word meanings and sample glosses; ^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. -Publisher.
For those seeking to master biblical Greek, this practical grammar is an ideal text. At an orderly pace, Hewett covers the basics to the complexities of Greek syntax and language rules.
