Very Good Introduction Study to Biblical Greek  Nov 26, 2007
I bought the book a short time ago. I strongly recommend it

It was perfect for me not having any background in languages or linguistics. The subject matter is not easy no matter how it is taught but Croy's book gives you chance to really enjoy learning greek while not being overly intimidated by it. Greek is quite sophisicated and the memory work is intense, and it takes a lot of practice and determination to get a handle on it. With this tho, the book was most encouraging, i have tried other texts but they made the subject pretty dry. This has a more personal touch to it. The exercises do not have translations but this is not necessary since most want to refer to their own favorite versions anyway... also when the translation is not there it more exciting when you can read the greek without the translation there next to it.
This book opened a great and exciting adventure for me

Disappointed  Nov 24, 2007
As someone who has had New Testament Greek many years ago and took this book in a crash course in just what, 6 weeks(?) I found it to be a disapointment. Very little of the vocabulary presented is the actual vocabulary used in the New Testament. If you are just learning Greek, you'd be better off to just stick with the NT Greek and forget the Septuagint. The fact that Croy does not use his own text ought to tell you something. I too, decry the lack of any key to the exercises. I was fortunate that I had an excellent teacher who diligently translated the exercises for us.
No translations of exercises. You can do better.  Oct 17, 2006
Grammar wise, it's not a bad book. It's made up of 32 chapters with extended explanations of the rules of ancient Greek grammar. Very nice, if you like that sort of thing.

Practice wise, it has no readings and only a few translation exercises. The exercises perpetuate the idiocy of not giving English translations, so you can not check your work. This may work in a classroom course, but for self-learners (which I assume you are, since you're shopping on this site) it should be deal breaker. You can do better.

Basics of Biblical Greek Grammar by William Mounce is better for grammar.
Learn New Testament Greek by John Dobson is better practice.
Very good introduction  Sep 10, 2006
I'm using this textbook for my Greek Grammar I class, and I really like it. It gives only what you need to know, which is nice when you don't know what you're doing or anything about the Greek language, and it provides helpful exercises each lesson from the LLX and standard Greek text.

The chapters aren't to intimidating because they're not large. Each chapters slowly builds on the chapter before it, and each chapter follow each other in a logical order.

If you're studying Greek without an instructor and only using this book, one thing that can be considered a downside with this book is there is no answer key for the exercises. This is a good thing if you're taking it at college because you learn alot doing the exercises and it gives you the opprotunity to apply the principles you're learning. My professor goes over the answers in class, but if you don't have a professor and teacher the task can be more time-consuming. But than again, what's the rush?

I love this book and would highly recommend it if you want to get a basic foundation in Greek and a first semester's Greek knowledge. If using this textbook without a instructor you may want to use it with Mounce's Basic's of Biblical Greek. Also this book would also be good for "re-learning" or reviewing Greek (if you don't use it you'll loose it).
Excellent Starting Point  Aug 31, 2006
N. Clayton Croy's grammar for New Testament Greek is a great place to start learning the language. I've just completed the book, which is the standard classroom text at schools such as Princeton Theological Seminary. Croy is quite accessible and lays out the basics of grammar in 32 concise lessons. Vocab is nicely distributed to match the subject of the lesson, and of course there are a lot of paradigms to memorize. Where this book excels is in the excercises provided at the end of every lesson, including 15 or so sentences written by Croy and drawing from only the vocab and grammar learned so far; a section from the Septuagint; and a section from the New Testament.

Unfortunately answer keys are not included, though we had access to them in class -- making me think that the book was written explicitly with the formal classroom environment in mind and that there may be a teacher's edition somewhere. Also, the book is only an elementary beginning; a user would be well-advised to supplement it with the memorization of principal parts for key verbs, additional New Testament vocab, etc.
