Back Cover Blurb
- An introduction to New Testament Greek, which replaces "Nunn (H.P.V.) - The Elements of New Testament Greek" as the standard textbook for theological students. Mr Wenham includes everything that a beginner needs to know and leaves out everything of secondary importance. There are forty-four lessons and many exercises.
- Mr Wenham has paid particular attention to the clarity of presentation, and to the choice of vocabulary and grammar which will be the most helpful in reading the New Testament.
- Those who have used Nunn’s book will find that Mr Wenham has left out a few of the reading exercises and the rare forms and constructions, but that the main change is the omission of accents, which hinder the easy mastery of the language, and are only really necessary to distinguish between a few pairs of words (and here they are retained).
- The additions are mainly the making good of certain deficiencies. Mr Wenham has also revised the vocabulary so that it includes almost every word which appears more than 30 times in the New Testament.
- A key to the exercises in the book is also available: "Wenham (John) - Key to the Elements of New Testament Greek".
