"In preparing the "Key to Exercises for New Testament Greek" I have sought to convey the sense of the Greek constructions (e.g., tense, mood, case, or structure), sometimes with the consequence of awkward English expressions. There are at least a dozen versions of the New Testament which may be consulted for smooth, idiomatic English. The intent here is to provide a translation of Greek that shows how the Greek writers express themselves and that calls to the student's mind some of the possible alternatives conveyed by a given Greek construction."" from the author's preface*See "New Testament Greek: A Beginning and Intermediate Grammar"

This trusted grammar provides Greek students with a solid foundation for doing translation, exegesis, and biblical interpretation. It presents complex Greek grammatical concepts clearly and in terms of familiar English grammar. Each concept is then illustrated using multiple examples from the New Testament, and students apply their learning with translation exercises drawn directly from the biblical text.
Praise for New Testament Greek
"One of the better grammars of New Testament Greek on the market. . . . The material presented is comprehensive in scope and much more detailed than other grammars. . . . An admirable work that would make a good text for a New Testament Greek course."
--Laurence M. Vance, Review of Biblical Literature
"Although we have many introductions to the New Testament and biblical Greek, this work takes us beyond that into the realm of an intermediate grammar. . . . It is hoped that this revised edition will see much use in the teaching of New Testament Greek."
--Francis Dalrymple-Hamilton, Review of Biblical Literature
"The authors take a classic and thorough approach, leading the student reader through the various components of grammar, the mysteries of the alphabet, and a step-by-step acquaintance with the necessary forms and structures of the language--all the while building vocabulary. A CD containing prompts and exercises accompanies the volume and enhances its pedagogical value."
--The Bible Today
"Unlocking the key of any sacred text is challenging. When the sacred text is in a foreign language, the reader either accepts translations or embarks upon learning the language. [This] well-written and easy-to-use grammar enables the reader to undertake the latter. Public, academic, and theological libraries should have this title on their shelves."
"[I] recommend this book for able students and those with previous linguistic experience."
--Ruth B. Edwards, Journal for the Study of the New Testament
"Many who study Greek and then return to the language after a prolonged absence will likely find this text a great help as the quick progression from basic to intermediate concepts is ideal for their situation."
--W. Andrew Smith, Expository Times
"I would recommend this textbook to those interested in the traditional grammar-translation approach, and who are also looking for something fresh but not altogether too different."
--Michael Halcomb, Stone-Campbell Journal
