Dodson has produced the ultimate GNT Reader's Edition, with several features not found in Zondervan's or UBS's. The basic format of all three books is the same, the Greek text with the rare words defined in footnotes right underneath the text, so you don't have to flip to a dictionary. But this book includes all words that occur 50 times or less, whereas Zondervan and UBS only include those that occur 30 times or less. Plus, Dodson includes the number of times each glossed word occurs in the GNT. This not only helps you decide which words to commit to memory, but also allow you to chart your progress. (If you don't know a word that occurs 2 times in the NT you are okay. If you keep forgetting words that occur 45 times, you know you have some work to do.) Zondervan contains no parsing info at all on verbs; UBS has some, but this book parses EVERY verb in the GNT, but, unlike, UBS, it separates the parsing info from the glosses. This makes sense, because many people don't need much help with parsing, but will need help with the vocab for a long time to come.

But what really makes this the best Reader's NT out there are the glosses. UBS generally just gives a one word gloss for the meaning of the word in that particularly passage. Zondervan is much better, listing all the meanings of the word found in the GNT, forcing the reader to decide which meaning applies. But the glosses in The Greek New Testament for Beginning Readers are even more complete. They are concise, but over and over again Dodson includes interesting information that will delight the reader. I read through the entire book of Hebrews in this book, and even though I know the GNT pretty well, I found all sorts of useful stuff.

I would guess that many, if not most, pastors dig into their Greek New Testaments less and less as the years go by. The busyness of the ministry, and the inevitable grammatical rustiness that set in, often lead to dusty Greek Testaments (don't even get me started about Hebrew!!!).
I would also guess, that many, if not most, pastors don't even know that there is such a thing as a readers edition of the Greek New Testament. If they did, books like this would fly off the shelves. I stumbled across a review of The Greek NT for Beginning Readers: Byzantine Textform on the internet, and found it on Amazon and bought it immediately.
When I got it in the mail, I started reading it, and before long I had made my way through a chapter without consulting any other book. I've done (several times) something I've never done with a Greek Testament: took it to bed and read it before going to sleep. This book helps you do the thing that will increase your Greek skills immeasurably: Read!! The more you read, the stronger is your vocabulary and recognition of grammatical forms.
Readers' Greek New Testament is far more helpful than an interlinear, because unfortunately, with an interlinear, most people can't avoid looking at the translation below the word. With a Reader's Edition, the definitions and parsing info are separated from the text as footnotes, which causes your eye to stay with the Greek text. The result is that you get more and more familiar with the text the more you use it. My copy has been constantly at hand since I got it, and will be for a long time.
There are Reader's Gk Testaments based on the NA27 text edition, and before I found this, I was thinking of buying one of those. But once I discovered this edition of the Byzantine Textform it was no contest for me.

I highly recommend this for anyone who is in the process of learning Biblical Greek or for anyone who may just like taking a look to see what Greek word was used in a particular place in scripture. This is an invaluable tool for someone making the tough transition from just studying Greek to actually reading it. I recommend buying this and taking it to church with you for a faster transition. Another reason I recommend this particular product over some from other publishers is the fact that this is based on the Byzantine Majority Text which takes into account several hundred texts, some of which include the oldest known complete New Testament and goes with the majority of what's there. There are some other similar products but as far as I'm aware they are based on the Critical Text which only takes into account a few texts and these text are edited or "critiqued" for content. No matter how good the intentions may be, a process like this will end up with a document that is influenced by the doctrinal beliefs of the people performing the criticism.

I thank God for this book! Other reviewers have very clearly pointed out how helpful it is as a reader. It has been almost 30 years since I studied Greek in seminary. I've kept it before me over the years, but could never seriously use a GK NT alone. Now, I've been reading this Greek NT daily for about two months, and for the first time, I can actually read and follow the text. I am convinced that this is an excellent method to truly getting the Greek committed to memory, far more effective than trying to memorize vocabulary words. I use a similar method in teaching English to foreigners, with excellent results. I am amazed at my progress in Greek, using this method. This is encouraging.

I usually read a chapter (or a part thereof) repeatedly two or three days in a row, and then move on. As I progress, (I am in 1John), I find that I am using using the helps less on less, and can simply follow the text, and see nuances. This is greatly encouraging.

Regarding the Majority Text: I've been examining the arguments regarding Greek texts for over ten years, reading from all sides, and I have come to believe that the Majority Text is indeed the most faithful. I thank God for the vision of both Maurice Robinson, and John Dodson to release this into public domain.

I can strongly recommend this book to anyone who has studied Greek but would like to improve in actually using it. May it help us to more deeply know God through more clearly knowing his Word.
