About-

New Testament Greek Primer has established itself among Greek instructors as a popular and dependable guide to the Greek of the New Testament, appreciated for its accuracy, coverage, and well-designed exercises. Students appreciate easy-to-read explanations, English grammar bridges, user-friendly layout, and copious tables, charts, and indexes. Retaining the basic form and content, the third edition builds on this solid reputation with enhanced discussion, organization, examples, and exercises. The appendix on English grammar aids English-challenged students. Pictures from the author's extensive travel overseas illustrate the ancient Greco-Roman context of the Greek New Testament. Other resources include language lessons elaborating translation and morphology issues, convenient vocabulary reviews anticipating vocabulary exams, an answer key, and indexes of vocabulary, principal parts, paradigms, and subjects.
The method is deductive and the goal focused on grammar and exegesis. An early emphasis on the noun system transitions to the principal parts of the verb, followed by moods, infinitives, and participles. Two lessons on the MI-verb system conclude the work. Examples and exercises are taken directly from the Greek New Testament.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Gerald Stevens' New Testament Greek Primer is a superb textbook for guiding students along the journey of learning Koine Greek grammar . . . Incorporation into the text of material often relegated to a separate workbook enhances the value and usefulness of the Primer, a feature appreciated by my students. With the inclusion of supplementary material in the form of photographs and discussions of archaeological artifacts, Stevens facilitates the employment of the best practices for Koine Greek language instruction, demonstrating how the language 'lived' outside the New Testament text."
--Richard Warren Johnson
East Texas Baptist University

"In this latest edition, Stevens advances his work still further in providing a solid foundation for anyone seeking to learn Koine Greek. Clearly written and accessible at every point, the text teaches itself. A masterful text by a master teacher!"
--Robert A. Bryant
Presbyterian College

"In this third edition, Gerald Stevens has produced a beginning Koine Greek Grammar that continues to be stellar with regard to both content and being user friendly. The copious tables, charts, listings, graphs, and photos make this one of the premier New Testament Greek grammars in terms of usefulness for both students and instructors. The organization is easy to follow and works through the various elements of Greek grammar in a manner that students can grasp and at a pace that they can handle."
--Bill Warren
New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
