A Primer of Biblical Greek with CD
Though a number of texts for teaching Biblical Greek now exist, most are plagued by various deficiencies that detract from effective instruction within the time limits set by most college and seminary programs. This primer by N. Clayton Croy offers a succinct, single-volume introduction to Biblical Greek that has already been tested in classrooms around the country. Taking a primarily deductive approach to teaching Biblical Greek, this volume assumes that students will have no prior knowledge in Greek. 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 Bible. Special features of this grammar: An abundance of exercises: Each lesson includes practice sentences taken from the Septuagint and the New Testament, as well as sentences composed by the author. Exercises in English-to-Greek translation are also included. Concise but accurate grammatical explanations: Great care has been taken to insure that grammatical explanations are clear, correct, and succinct. The Greek participle also receives a fuller treatment than is usual. * A natural order of presentation: Material is presented according to the natural structure of Greek and the traditional terminology of grammarians. Declensions and principal parts, for example, are presented in numerical order. Helpful appendixes for quick reference: Included at the back of the book are the Greek paradigms, Greek-to-English vocabulary, English-to-Greek vocabulary, and a bibliography for further study. - Publisher.

I've been using this book in my Greek study at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor for the past two years. My Greek professor loves this book, and has stated it is his favorite to use in the past 30 years he's been teaching it. I love how the book is set up with plenty of practice sentences that can be used for practice and review a variety of times. There's at least 12 sentences on average per lesson that focus on the vocabulary for that lesson. I also love how the Septuagint AND New Testament sentences are used for practice as well. I definitely recommend this book if your looking for a thorough explanation of Biblical Greek and practice.
However, I do recognize the need for guidance from someone an expert. I recommend even with the use of this book to seek council in your Greek studies. Translation is best when done in community, unless it's on the test. ;)
