Basics of Biblical Greek Grammar by William D. Mounce
The accompanying workbook is bibllcal must if you are doing this on your own rather than with a class. The great thing about this book is that it affords the Greek neophyte to study on his own without the need for a formal course.
However, if you are serious about pursuing New Testament Greek, I would highly recommend going through a reputable college or University. The correction and insight gleaned from a knowledgeable professor is priceless. One of my only gripes is that Mounce does not make good use of the on-going developments in linguistics and verbal aspect theory. Granted, the issue is still being worked through, but many things, such as the nature of aspect in contrast with tense and tense-form and the difference between semantic encoding and pragmatic effect, would greatly help the new student.
Without taking advantage of these modern insights, Mounce puts the reader at a disadvantage and into the dangerous place of oversimplifying matters. However, having said this, it is still the best Greek Grammar available today. Buy it and learn Greek! Feb 08, Robert Schut rated it it was amazing Shelves: I was not able to learn NT Greek though the traditional manner of teacher-led classes so I had to resort to self-help.
Mounce provided excellent descriptions of what he is doing and why he does it. He also provides many helps such his workbook wilkiam of Biblical Greek. My thinking process works better when my hands are doing something so I think it was great.
The only problem that I have with Mounce’s t I was not able to learn NT Greek though the traditional manner of teacher-led classes mojnce I had to resort to self-help. The only problem that I have with Mounce’s technique is that he doesn’t recommend learning the verb forms by memorizing paradigms, but by memorizing tables and Master Verb Charts.
I’m sure that this is a better method for some people, but I did not find it very useful. In this method you simply memorize the paradigm for each tense using the word luw loose. It’s a lot of work, but once you get the rhythm of the paradigm it sticks with you. I still forget Mounce’s tables and return to the paradigm ggeek I get stuck. This is not a criticism of the book, but something that you might consider if you basicd learn it his way. Mounce really has created a fantastic resource, as I worked through this textbook in two of my Greek courses in my masters degree program M.

Not only am I able to interact exegetically with critical commentaries, but being able to open up my Greek New Testament and read and translate the text myself is invaluable. Truly Mounce really has created a fantastic resource, as I worked through this textbook in two of my Greek courses in my masters degree program M. My wife and I have been doing our devotionals nightly by me reading, parsing, translating, then exegeting it from my Greek New Testament.
We are going through 1 John. I plan on making it a habit to do my devotionals in Greek the rest of my life. I am also planning on going through Wallace’s more advanced Grammar book later this year. Feb 15, Nile rated it it was amazing Shelves: I spent three years going through this book on my own. I am no expert in Biblical Greek and cannot just released the Bible in Greek, but I am able to effectively use tools to understand the original language if I take the time to study a short passage.
I am very thankful for this resource and feel like it was a great help to me in my studies. I have not looked at any other books, but I would recommend this for someone that is not a seminary student and has no prior exposure to Greek. There are a I spent three years going through this book on my own.
There are also some resources on the authors website in the form of recorded lectures, answer keys, summary sheets, etc. Jul 29, Jeff rated it liked it. Hard to review a textbook. Years ago I used Machen’s grammar for a greek course and found it much simpler and easier to work with. But Mounce’s bazics has it’s strengths and was helpful in many areas as well.
When all was said and done, though, I found myself reverting back to Machen’s methodology for learning and memorization more often than not.
Jun 11, Steven Long rated it really liked it. The must-have primer for learning Koine Greek! If you’re a student of Greek or plan to be I would highly recommend this book. Mounce goes into great detail of certain morphological peculiarities rather than just spewing them from memory. His discussion on 3rd declension nouns was the reason I was finally able to learn the paradigm.
Understanding why they declined the way they did was helpful for me to finally grasp the concept. Dec 25, Lori L. Awesome for the study of Biblical Greek, particularly when studying the New Testament.
Great resource – Silliam learned a lot! Mounce is definitely an authority on this topic, and he makes it VERY easy to comprehend if you are willing to put in the study time.
