This book does a good job of hitting the sweet spot between too wordy and too brief. In the first part of the book each usage of the substantive is given a succinct but complete & useful explanation, which is followed by several scriptural examples in both Greek and English.
For example, the "Adverbial Accusative of Measure" has a six sentence explanation followed by ten subcategories such as "The Substantive with the Preposition epi [Greek epi]" and a total of 25 examples from the New Testament.
Part II covers "The Verb" with the same type of information.
Part III of the book discussed "Aspects of Greek Sentences", including phrases and some diagramming.
The target audience is first or second year students of Greek and the purpose of the book is "to introduce the student to Greek syntax with maximum exposure to examples in the New Testament". In my opinion the authors have done a good job of achieving that goal.
This is not intended to be a student's one and only grammar. It is a great book to have on the shelf, a tool to easily understand the main grammatical categories. The old saying is true, that an example is worth a thousand words.
For instance, Brooks and Winbery define terms such as "substantive," "number," "gender" (as it pertains to grammar) and "case" before they explain Greek cases such as nominative or the accusative case. The genitive case is classified into such categories as "Genitive of description" (that is, the genitive attributes a quality or relationship to the substantive), "Genitive of relationship" (this category is actually an extension of the genitive of possession), and "adverbial genitive."
Examples that illustrate these types of genitives (along with helpful translations) are given. E.G. the words LOGOIS THS XARITOS (Luke 4:22) illustrate the "genitive of description." The authors render these words thus: "words of grace." And there are five other scriptural examples provided for the genitive of description.
The foregoing is only part of the helpful material contained in this work. I would highly recommend this book, although there are certain ideas presented that I would not accept uncritically. But this book serves a very useful purpose. It will remain a classic for students of Greek syntax.

I found that this book does a great job of summarizing grammer elements in a short but pithy fashion. Its treatment of participles was worth the price alone. Read morePublished on September 13, 2006 by Randall P. Bachman
