"Gerald Stevens' 'New Testament Greek Intermediate' follows the time-honored deductive approach to learning second-year Koine Greek. In addition to reviewing morphology, Stevens introduces the student to second-year syntactical issues without overwhelming him with third-year, exegetical concepts. His explanations are exact with copious examples from the New Testament that underscore the concepts. The self-contained homework exercises from the New Testament eliminate the need for purchasing an additional workbook. Stevens' intermediate grammar is a natural sequel to his Primer, also published by Cascade Books. For the professor looking for a true, intermediate Greek grammar, Stevens' will not disappoint your expectations."

Stevens meets a special need with his New Testament Greek Intermediate grammar. The field is replete with introductory and advanced texts but few have addressed the needs of students in the middle. Stevens' text addresses that void, and no one has done it so well. This volume presents a readable, comprehensive overview of Greek grammar arranged topically, utilizing the latest research in linguistics, and there are ample exercises drawn from biblical texts marked by Stevens' pedagogical deftness. I highly recommend this text for students and teachers alike.

This student-friendly grammar masterfully guides students beyond basic Greek proficiency to translating an entire New Testament book. Students will welcome Stevens' clarity of presentation and his ability to engage them in the text. This volume both facilitates students' thorough review of Greek grammar as well as propels them forward to mastery of relevant nuances in translating the lingua franca of the early Christians.

The author's characteristic thoroughness is evident throughout. Integration of student assignments with the primary text ensures that students will apply the concepts as they are introduced, greatly enhancing student learning. The content and organization of the material ensures that students will continue to use this text as a reference as they pursue more advanced studies.
