“As a linguist and former Wycliffe translator, Mounce’s Basics of Biblical Greek has been my preferred textbook for 15 years, both in the classroom and online. His systemic, morphological approach helps students visualize important elements that parts of speech share, instead of merely struggle with how they differ. Consequently, he has somewhat reduced rote memory work. His (optional) separation of the noun system from the verb system reduces confusion on key endings. His workbook is equally impressive, quickly engaging and motivating students with translating actual Bible verses---even some of the LXX and the Fathers. I highly recommend it!' Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary---Charlotte -- Joel Harlow|“One factor that makes Basics of Biblical Greek a superior textbook for teaching the elements of Greek is the additional resources that are available to accompany the textbook. I have found that for students learning Greek for the first time the companion resources become essential tools for learning. Additional resources such as the workbook, vocabulary cards, pronunciation assistance, laminated study guide, and free mini-lectures by Bill Mounce---just to name a few---support what I am doing in the classroom.” North Park University -- Joel Willitts
