Start your review of Basics of Biblical Greek Grammar. 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. Div , which took about half a year to complete.
Having a good working knowledge of basic New Testament biblical Greek has strengthened my understanding of exegesis immeasurably. 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. Truly grateful. 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. View 2 comments. I feel like I deserve a medal for finishing Mounce, but I think that will have to wait to see if I pass the final exam in a couple of weeks. Jan 08, Corey Decker rated it really liked it Shelves: greek-grammar.
This is, in my humble opinion, the best Greek Grammar for first year students. Unlike many other grammars, Mounce does not give information without explaining its purpose. Instead of listing all of the exceptions to a rule, he gives a simple, concise summary of the rule and seeks to explain the irregularities. You will not feel as though you are reading a bunch of paradigms chapter after chapter. It is well organized and has a very encouraging practical example of the new material being propose This is, in my humble opinion, the best Greek Grammar for first year students.
It is well organized and has a very encouraging practical example of the new material being proposed for each chapter. The accompanying workbook is a 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: greek. 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 "Basics 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 so 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. Gresham Machen. 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 whenever I get stuck. This is not a criticism of the book, but something that you might consider if you can't learn it his way.
Feb 15, Nile rated it it was amazing Shelves: own-it. 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 book 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.
This is a really stellar introduction to koine Greek. I like the way Mounce breaks down the rules to how words conjugate, so you can figure things out instead of memorizing a million forms. I didn't find out until Greek 3 that there's an answer key online! That's helpful.
