Biblical Greek: A Compact Guide offers Greek students a one-stop guide for the grammar, morphology, and vocabulary of biblical Greek. This resource follows the organization and format familiar to the hundreds of thousands of students who have used Basics of Biblical Greek Grammar in their first-year Greek courses, but it is also usable by students who learned with a different grammar. By limiting its discussion to the Ônuts and bolts,Ö Greek language students working on translation and exegesis will more quickly and easily find the relevant grammatical refreshers.Students can, for example, check on the range of meaning for a particular word or make sure they remember how aorist participles function in a sentence. The paradigms, word lists, and basic discussions in Biblical Greek: A Compact Guide point students in the right direction and allow them to focus on more advanced Greek study.Biblical Greek: A Compact Guide will become a valuable addition to the reference library of seminary students and pastors.
