Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

If you think that . . . • Aorist is a major artery of the heart • Clause is the surname of the fat guy in the red suit • Syntax is Uncle Sam’s slice of alcohol and tobacco sales

. . . then you need English Grammar to Ace New Testament Greek. It’s designed to help you get a quick brush-up on the English grammar you’ve either forgotten or never quite learned, in a way that ties directly to your first-year Greek studies.

With chapters such as "You Ain’t Nothing but a Noun Dog" and "Inflection: Trouble Understanding Yoda You Have, Yes?" this colorful, entertaining book compares elements of English grammar with similar elements in Greek grammar. It can either be used as a one-week intensive study to prepare for Greek grammar, or be readily incorporated into actual Greek studies.

English Grammar to Ace New Testament Greek features: • A brief summary of the scope of English grammar • Short, easy-to-read chapters • An introductory devotion in every chapter • Lessons coordinated with Mounce’s Basics of Biblical Greek • Tips for vocabulary memorization and sentence diagramming • Glossary

This is a very handy reference for those who are trying to learn biblical Greek but need an instant refresher of the parts of speech in English and don't have much time to get up to speed. Very helpful. If you need to learn how to diagram sentences, you'll need an additional resource for that. This one includes only the most cursory review of that topic. I still recommmend it for students of biblical Greek.

Only Sam Lamerson could have written a grammar that brings humor to English grammar, but he does so with a sharp, captivating style that makes his lessons stick to the mind and touch the heart. This book is a joy to read, even if you are not trying to Ace New Testament Greek, and it will be a life saver if you are.

The short and sweat: if you do not really know basic English grammatical terms--adjective, adverb, infinitive, direct/indirect object, etc.--and what they mean in English, than this book can help you out. If you do know them, then unless you have to buy this book for class, it won't really help you.

The premise of Lamerson's book is that in order to effectively learn the grammar of Greek you need to have some idea of the grammar of your own language, in this case, English. Since learning to read Koine is learning to read a dead language you can't really go about learning it by immersion into a culture of native speakers. At some point you need to interact with grammatical concepts, which is the main function of Greek grammars (along with expanding your likely non-existent Greek vocabulary and introducing the basics of Greek morphology). The issue occurs, as I can testify through watching others, when you read through a Greek grammar but have know idea what the grammatical concepts, such as a direct object, actually correspond to in English.
Lamerson's goal is to give a quick refresher on English grammar so that the student of Greek can have some mental 'hooks' on which to hang Greek grammatical concepts, to aid the learner in the beginning stages. This will really prove helpful at the beginning of learning the language as the reader is first beginning to slog through the cases and verbal system.

I enjoyed this little power packed book. Straight forward with a little humor. Understand English, then you can understand Greek. This book helps you with both.
