Primer of Biblical Greek
Though there are currently a number of texts for teaching biblical Greek, most suffer from assumptions that directly impact the student. Written with these flaws in mind, Primer of Biblical Greek by N. Clayton Croy offers an effective, efficient, single-volume introduction to biblical Greek that has proven successful in classrooms around the country. This volume takes a primarily deductive approach to teaching biblical Greek and makes its own foundational assumption that students have no prior knowledge of the language.
Divided into 32 separate lessons, each containing a generous number of exercises, the text leads students from the Greek alphabet to a working understanding of the language of the Septuagint and the New Testament.
Special features of A Primer of Biblical Greek:
- An abundance of exercises--Each lesson includes practice sentences taken from the Septuagint and the New Testament as well as original sentences, and very challenging English-to-Greek translation exercises.
- Concise but accurate grammatical explanations: Great care has been taken to insure that grammatical explanations are clear, correct, and succinct. In particular, the Greek participle receives a fuller-than-usual treatment.
- A natural flowing order of presentation: Material is presented according to the natural structure of Greek and the traditional terminology of grammarians. Declensions and principal parts, for example, are presented in numerical order.
- Inclusive language: The book uses inclusive language for human beings throughout.
- Helpful appendixes for quick reference: Included at the back of the book are the Greek paradigms, Greek-to-English vocabulary, English-to-Greek vocabulary, and a bibliography for further study.
