For more than fifty years Summers’ book has been a classic textbook and essential tool for students of New Testament Greek. Thomas Sawyer has updated this time-honored classic to make it even more effective for today’s students. The book’s major features are: a step-by-step approach to guide students through the learning process; clear explanations of the Greek language and how it works; extensive appendices with paradigms, indexes, and verb list; high-frequency Greek vocabulary, presenting every word used 50 times or more in the New Testament; numerous examples from the Greek New Testament to illustrate grammatical points; translation exercises which use nearly 300 New Testament verses; and an expanded, easy-to-read verb chart. Essentials of New Testament Greek, Revised is an exceptional textbook for college and seminary students, an effective resource for ministers, and an efficient guide for self-study.
