Request for information
Sorry to interrupt y'all... I'm not a Greek scholar, but I thought this group
would be an excellent place to get some information. I want to learn to read
Greek for a Greek New Testament. My problem is that there are so many books
out there that will supposedly help me learn, but I have a finite budget. I
have received a couple of recommendations and have access to several from the
CBD, but wanted to know if anyone here had any recommendations or input. Here
is what I have considered so far:
_The Language of the New Testament_ by Eugene Goetchius
_New Testament Greek for Beginners_ by J. G. Machen
_Learn to Read New Testament Greek_ by David Alen Black
_New Testament Greek: A Beginning-Intermediate Grammar_ by James A. Hewett
_A Beginner's New Testament Greek Grammar_ by Sakae Kubo
_Reading NT Greek: Complete Word Lists and Reader's Guide_ by Bernard B. Scott
The first two were recommended, the last four I found in the CBD catalog.
Has anyone here read, reviewed or heard about any of these?
Your help would be greatly appreciated!
PS I'm also looking into obtaining a Greek New Testament. I am currently
leaning towards the _UBS4_ and _Nestle-Aland 26th_. Any comments on
these, or others, would also be appreciated.
