Reviews - What do our customers think?
New Testament Greek  Jul 5, 2007
One has to be a student of New Testament Greek to find this book useful. It is helpful because it groups families of Greek words---a lot of verbs especially---to enable the memory to learn their meanings and hold onto them when reading N.T. Greek and translating.
A very useful tool for learning Koine Greek vocabulary through roots  Feb 15, 2007
To master a good vocabulary in Koine Greek, there are two methods, i.e. by roots and by domain. If you are pursuing the method by roots, this is a very good book to take on after you have mastered the renowned and basic text in lexical aid written by Metzger. The basic 1,000 words have been covered by the book and highlighted as >10 times. Words are given under a common root. The book enable the reader to broaden his vocabulary after having mastered the high frequency words and relate them to the low frequency words with the same root.
Confusing approach to Greek vocabulary  Apr 17, 2006
Each student of Greek, as with any language, will find certain aspects of the language frustrating and difficult to master. For me, the morphology and grammar were not terribly difficult, but vocabulary is an endless source of frustration. As Robinson points out in this book, there are around 5000 unique words in the New Testament, so a large vocabulary is essential to reading the Greek New Testament with ease.
In his book "Mastering Greek Vocabulary," Robinson has managed to make Greek vocabulary considerably more frustrating and hard to learn than previous books. His idea is to arrange vocabulary according to roots and frequency. More frequent roots occur higher in his list, and beneath the root are various vocabulary words derived from the root. Robinson breaks down words where possible, showing the prefixes and suffixes attached to the root to form the new word.
The problem with this approach is that it is actually more confusing to study words derived from a single root all at once, as opposed to studying them in isolation. If you learn that the root 'echo' means 'have or hold', and then successively learn the words 'anechomai', 'apecho', 'katecho', 'parecho', and so forth, you are bound to get them mixed up with one another. Robinson, I suppose, would answer that if you learn your prefixes and suffixes well, it should be easy to derive the meanings of words without rote memorization and to keep their meanings straight. But, e.g., he gives the meaning of the prefix 'par' as "beside, disordered, negative." The meaning of the root 'echo' is have/hold. He gives the meaning of 'parecho' as "cause." Beside + have = cause? No, the only way to learn this word is via rote, and when you learn it with five other 'echo' words you can be guaranteed confusion and frustration.
A better approach, I think, is Bruce Metzger's "Lexical Aids for Students of New Testament Greek". Robinson's book was meant to be an improvement on Metzer, but why tamper with a classic? Although he also has a separate section on roots, Metzger orders words according to their frequency regardless of roots, and is much easier for students. My only complaint is that he doesn't use a two-column format for the Greek and English words, which makes it hard to cover the page to test oneself. Bill Mounce also has a useful set of flash cards ordered according to word frequency. Either of these tools, in my opinion, would be better than the confusing approach of the Robinson book.
Nothing but praise for this small book...  Feb 5, 2004
This little book exceeds the value of its purchase price. Its excellent organization of Greek vocabulary by root and other study aids will vastly encourage and develop your Greek word power. It is dynamite! "auton estin agathon!"
Excellent Approach to Memorization  Nov 26, 2001
Two key techniques of this book that make it stand out from the others I have used are: 1) with each word is listed how many times it is used in the NT (so you are able to pay particular attention to the most common ones), and 2) all words of the same family are listed together. Robinson's quick-start list of words that have identical or almost identical equivalents in the English language gives the student courage that this memorization is do-able. Great for someone who is afraid (or not) of Greek vocabulary. Great for someone who wants to get up and running quickly.
