A Primer of Bibilcal Greek with CDROM
N. Clayton Croy
From The Publisher:
Though there are currently a number of texts for teaching biblical Greek, most of them are plagued by various deficiencies. Written with these flaws in mind, this new primer by N. Clayton Croy offers an effective, single-volume introduction to biblical Greek that has already been tested - and proven successful - in classrooms around the country.
This volume takes a primarily deductive approach to teaching biblical Greek and assumes that students have no prior knowledge of the language. Divided into 32 separate lessons, each containing a generous number of exercises, the text leads students from the Greek alphabet to a working understanding of the language of the Septuagint and the New Testament.
Special Features of A Primer of Biblical Greek:
Designed to provide students with the skills necessary to handle biblical Greek with confidence, this volume will become the text of choice for colleges and seminaries.
This may be the best introductory text published in recent years. In terms of progression through the material, quality of explanatory examples of verbal constructions, and usefulness of the homework exercises, this book is unsurpassed.
—Review of Biblical Literature
For the serious student of the New Testament, learning some amount of biblical Greek is a necessity. This new textbook is a very helpful tool for that task. Designed for beginning students in biblical Greek at the college or seminary level, it offers in a clear and effective manner a step-by-step procedure for learning the language. Vocabulary lists and exercises are drawn from the New Testament and the Septuagint so that from the outset the student has the satisfaction of reading from the biblical texts themselves.
—The Bible Today
Divided into thirty-two lessons (with vocabulary and exercises), this introductory textbook seeks to lead college and seminary students from the Greek alphabet to a working knowledge of the language of the Septuagint and the NT. Paradigms and vocabulary lists are included. The book is adaptable for use in full-year, semester-long, and summer intensive courses, chiefly by selective assignment of exercises.
—New Testament Abstracts
This new textbook provides a traditional presentation of beginning Greek grammar ideally suited for college and seminary courses…. The abundance and variety of exercises provide flexibility for use with different class formats and teaching styles and prevent students’ familiarity with the NT from becoming a hindrance… A strong contender for instructors unhappy with outdated and idiosyncratic grammars.
