After reading the reviews of this work, I hesitatingly ordered (fearful that it might be a little too "basic" and perhaps too "elementary" to be of much help). WRONG! This baby is a jewel! Besides providing the basic information concerning tense, voice, mood, etc., it also provides a brief interpretation of figures of speech and other truly relevant information that is either explicit or implicit within the Greek text. For example, in Revelation 1:18 you will find this notation explaining the idiom "keys of death and hades"--here, the power of delivering from or consigning to the lower world." In various genitive constructions, Zerwick provides the relevant possibilities for one to consider. For example, Romans 1:5 the phrase "obedience of faith" (the literal translation of this phrase) is rather ambiguous (as Paul likely meant it to be). But Zerwick shows that this gentive phrase could be understood as (1)a subjective genitive= "obedience that springs from faith" (2) an objective genitive= ("obedience to faith") or (3) an epexegetic genitive= (obedience which consists in faith." In some verses Zewick doesn't give ALL of the possibilities (for that would make the book prohibitively large). But he gives an amazing amount of information in a very small amount of space and with a brevity of words. One note--this work does use lots of abbreviations. But they are pretty self-evident. But for the newbey to greek grammar, there is a brief glossary explaining the abbreviations. The preface speaks of the "purpose" for which this work was produced--" It is hoped that this English revised edition...Read more ›

I took first-year and Intermediate Greek; we used the Lexical Aids for Students of New Testament Greek to get our vocabulary down to 10x word occurrences in the Greek New Testament. Yet doing this, you only cover roughly 99% of all words in the Greek New Testament. There are many, many words in the Greek New Testament that occur quite often, and it's good to have this book to look up what they mean. Alan Wong (one of the reviewers) also told me about this book, and it is fabulous!
Especially when reading Paul where there are many hapaxlegemons, it is essential to have a good dictionary around, and "Max and Mary" (as this is nicknamed) is very good to have around, especially that it is layed out verse-by-verse, parsed. I use this book quite regularly when I'm in the Gospel of Luke or in the Acts of the Apostles, or in the Epistles. (The book of Hebrews is another matter altogether!)
In addition, the book also covers a number of textual variants, grammatical constructs, and idioms, all very helpful. It is bound in vinyl (I think to be lightweight), so unfortunately, if you use this heavily, it may fall apart over the years.
It's worth it for the student and pastor who has learned a good amount of Greek grammar, and wants to do some Greek translation and exegesis, and is a great tool to have when beginning exegesis. In addition, I'd also recommend Daniel Wallace's Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics (which was our Intermediate Greek textbook), which explains a lot of the more advanced Greek constructs and grammar.
However, as a good working translation is important in exegesis, this book is invaluable.

After I finished first-year NT Greek, I used this precious gem of a tool to read Colossians with significant understanding in about four hours! This is better than ANY of the computerized Greek NT study helps.
Use this tool with Zerwick's excellent little grammar book, to which it's keyed. In the few places where I've found that my biases differ from Zerwick's, his have always been easy enough to isolate and think about.
Use this tool for quick reading; don't use it for exegesis papers, and don't let it become a crutch for verb forms.

As a pastor who had all the basic and advance Greek grammar years ago...i try to do a good job of exegesis on each sermon. As I have developed my exegesis process, this book, and it's companion, Biblical Greek (by Zerwick) have helped me expand my understanding of Greek. The little lesson codes in the Grammatical Analysis lead you to more training in Greek. For example, prepositional phrases may have a variety of nuances depending on the shade of meaning that the preposition implies in the context. Zerwick labels these nuances and gives relevant lesson codes tied right into the text. So for a typical passage I'm working on for a sermon, I can often have 4-7 five or ten minute Biblical Greek lessons at my finger tips. That is very cool. Sometimes they are just technical jazz that wastes time....but other times it helps me retranslate the passage or phrase! I always try to check those little fact I have gotten into the habit of highlighting them for the passage I'm working on and zooming in on them while waiting for something somewhere.

The criticisms of this book (don't believe the reviews that say it's has it's flaws too). Sometimes I've seen a catholic bias in the text (it is from Rome you know)....or have been unable to find scholars online who really know what he's referring to...he can be difficult to understand...but that is rare-maybe a couple times per year for me. The more substantive criticism really is that he gives so little information and uses so many abbreviations that you have to be on your toes to know exactly what he means or look up a lot of stuff. Once you start using it all the time, then these problems go away...because your knowledge level should rise.

If you really don't remember your first year greek at all...
