Reading the New Testament in its original language is one of the most effective ways to gain a greater understanding of the message of the Bible. Yet many who are called to ministry will not be able to dedicate years of study to master the language. Greek for Everyone allows pastors, Bible study instructors, Sunday school teachers, and serious lay students of the Bible to learn the basics of biblical Greek at their own pace. It explains how the Greek language works and introduces the Greek alphabet, pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar. By focusing on the takeaways that most impact interpretation, this book provides a working knowledge of biblical Greek for in-depth study of the New Testament.

Amos Professor of New Testament for Doctoral Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary;doctoral faculty emeritus, University of St Andrews, Scotland

"From participles to prepositions, from nouns to verbs, Greek for Everyone keeps it simple and clear. Students will love it."-- Craig A. Evans, John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins and dean of the School of Christian Thought, Houston Baptist University
