Learn to Read New Testament Greek is a user-friendly introduction to the Greek New Testament which offers insight into the language and thought of the New Testament writers. In this volume, David Alan Black provides tools and exercises for bringing readers to the experience of reading from the Greek New Testament after just seventeen lessons.

The goal of Learn to Read New Testament Greek is two-fold: to give students an insight into the language and thought of New Testament writers, and to prepare them to read and understand the original Greek text of the New Testament. Whether you are trying to write a solid expository sermon, prepare an accurate Sunday School lesson, or translate the New Testament, Learn to Read New Testament Greek is an essential guide.

The principles and methods used in Learn to Read New Testament Greek will enable rapid progress in Greek study. New information is introduced in small, manageable units, and points of grammar are fully explained and illustrated. After seventeen lessons you will begin reading selected passages from the Greek New Testament, and by the end of the course you will be able to read the entire New Testament with minimal reference to a lexicon. You will also acquire an understanding of the structure of the Greek language, an ability to use commentaries and other works based on the Greek text, and a growing capacity to plumb the depths of God’s revelation for yourself.
