Steven, Dr. Gerald Stevens is a colleague of mine here in the NT Dept. at New
Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, so I'll seek to answer some of your
questions on his grammar. His grammar is geared for use on both the intro
and early intermediate levels of grammar. Also, a workbook accompanies the
grammar. As for the approach, while primarily deductive, some inductive
aspects are included. The grammar was first released around 1994, then
revised a few years after. The book has proven quite effective in numerous
settings. Besides a plethora of grammatical information (often quite
detailed and very useful as a reference for students even at later stages of
learning Greek), the text also includes some introductory syntax work and
even a smattering of TC samples (primarily images with certain details
highlighted) to whet the appetite of students for further study in that

Dr. Stevens is currently working on a new work that will be a simplified
"Greek Basics" type of grammar, but that work will not include nearly the
grammatical information as in his larger grammar work.

I hope this helps you to evaluate the worth of the module.
