Great for English grammar
5 stars By Eric, Apr 03 2017
Often before we learn a foreign language (either living or dead) we need to be familiar with grammatical concepts in our own language. Once upon a time students had grammar drilled into them and had to parse sentences correctly to get a passing grade in English but these days grammar isn't taught as it once was. Without knowing verbal differences (intransitive, transitive, reflexive etc) it's extremely difficult to diagnose and correctly parse sentences in a foreign language. This is where this book comes in handy. It's not a book of biblical Greek as such but mainly a book about English grammar which uses very small amounts of Koine Greek to help the student understand the similarities and differences between the grammar of English and the grammar of New Testament Greek. If you're about to start studying Koine Greek but grammatical terms such as "infinitive" and "split infinitive" are beyond you then I'd suggest buying this book in addition to a book about New Testament Greek. If you're well acquainted with grammatical principles andor have learnt a foreign language before then you might want to give this book a miss. The caveat here is how well acquainted you are with grammar. If you're not a master of grammatical concepts then this book will bring you up to speed and facilitate second language learning. I think it's worth the investment personally.

4 stars By Tim, Oct 03 2016
I read this before coming to college to review my english grammar and begin to get my head around the terms and ideas in Greek grammar. I found it so helpful. It mean that things weren't so foreign when I stepped into the classroom. I have also been referring back to it for help throughout the year when I have been finding particular subjects hard. Its a great little book.
