"This text is written for the person who seriously wishes to learn Greek and to read intelligibly a Greek New Testament. Whereas it is expected that the volume will be primarily used in classroom settings, the text was written with the intention that a person, using the Translation Key to evaluate his or her exercises, could readily progress to competent exegetical studies without professorial help.
"Experience has shown that the most significant stumbling block to learning Greek is an inadequate knowledge of English grammar. Hence, while the text assumes that a person does know English grammar. Hence, while the text assumes that a person does know English grammar, it also includes explanations and illustrations of each English grammatical counterpart as new Greek materials are introduced.
"The text proceeds from the basic structures of the verb and noun to the more complex constructions. Forms and vocabulary are introduced at a rate such that by the end of two semesters (30 weeks) or an intensive summer program (e.g., eight 40 hour weeks) the student will have covered all the grammar and vocabulary necessary to enter basic Greek exegesis courses."

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
James Allen Hewett is a pastor with a strong background in language education, having taught Greek courses at Uganda Christian University, Oral Roberts University, and Asbury Theological Seminary.
