Overview

Designed as a textbook for teaching introductory Greek grammar and syntax, Greek Is Good Grief: Laying the Foundation for Exegesis and Exposition uses a graded database, beginning with the simpler Greek of John 1, moving to Mark 8 as an example of middle level Greek, and concluding with 1 Thessalonians 1–2 as representative of Paul's style. Working from that database, the chapters introduce first those forms which occur most frequently. Translation of the Greek New Testament itself can begin as early as Chapter 5 because translation helps are provided for those words and forms not yet encountered.

The practice sentences in each chapter are, to the greatest degree possible, based on sentences taken directly from the Greek New Testament. Form identification exercises afford you the opportunity to drill on forms specific to the content of each chapter. Each new grammatical concept is introduced by a discussion of English grammar, and each chapter begins with a “Grammar Grabber" which highlights an aspect of the chapter's content by explaining how that aspect of grammar is important for understanding a portion of the Greek text of the New Testament. Field tested in both face-to-face and distance learning course formats, Greek Is Good Grief lays the foundation for a smooth transition to the study of Greek exegesis and exposition.

When he completed his studies in 1986 he remained in Columbia for two years to work at CIU as a Faculty Assistant. He later served as a Teaching Fellow at CIU’s SSM for one year immediately prior to joining the faculty. Dr. Harvey is a member of the Evangelical Theological Society, the Institute for Biblical Research, the Society of Biblical Literature, and the South Carolina Academy of Religion. He has written book reviews for the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society as well as contributing articles to a number of theological dictionaries. Dr. Harvey is ordained as a teaching elder in the Presbyterian Church in America. During 1998-99, he and his wife, Anita, lived in Germany, while he served as Interim Dean of the SSM Branch Campus in Korntal, Germany.
