For many years, first-year Greek students have relied on James Allen Hewett's New Testament Greek: A Beginning and Intermediate Grammar for its straightforward approach to the fundamentals of language study. Now this trusted grammar will continue to provide beginning scholars with a solid foundation for doing translation, exegesis, and biblical interpretation.
New Testament Greek 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 biblical text instead of artificial sentences created by grammarians. The CD-ROM included with the textbook contains powerful learning tools for vocalizing Greek, mastering new vocabulary, and identifying verb forms.
· chapters providing a foundational understanding of the basic components of language
· a linguistically informed chapter on how languages communicate meaning
· detailed explanations of complex grammatical constructions that shed light on biblical meanings
· grammatical discussions that reflect recent advances in the understanding of Greek tense and case
· vocabulary study lists based on NT word frequency
· Greek-to-English translation exercises that help students quickly build competency and confidence
· optional "Step Beyond" advanced grammar sections and English-to-Greek translation exercises
· expanded reference appendixes, including summary word charts, vocabulary lists, and a list of principal parts of common verbs
· a dictionary of all the Greek words used in the text
· a complete answer key to the translation exercises on the CD-ROM

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
