Exploring New Testament Greek A Way In (with Peter Kevern; SCM Press, 2004)
his practical textbook for undergraduate students and serving ministers is specifically designed to teach the reader about New Testament Greek, and to enrich the readers understanding of Scripture. Exploring New Testament Greek aims to cultivate a ‘feel’ for the Greek language and give insight into some central issues in New Testament study without a heavy investment of time and energy. Its priorities are accessibility and relevance for Bible study: it is set out in ten short chapters that encourage learning through a variety of practical exercises, and concentrates on those aspects of the language that lead directly to increased understanding of the text. Rather than overwhelming the student with tables of grammar and vocabulary, the book directs students in the use of free websites, interlinear translations and other readily-available language tools as a means of making a little knowledge go a long way. The first guide to New Testament Greek to assume no prior knowledge of the language and prioritise quick and effective means of learning. Peter Kevern is a theologian and educationalist, currently Director of Studies at the Queen’s Foundation, Birmingham. Paula Gooder is a freelance biblical lecturer and writer. She has extensive experience teaching both Greek and Hebrew at higher education level.
