It’s Greek to Me! An Easy Self-Study of the New Testament Language. Volume 1. By John Hart. Chesterton, IN: Hart and Home Publishers, 1993. 97 pp. Paper, $20.95 (includes shipping and handling).
This is a fun book. A middle school or high school student could realistically learn the basics of Koine Greek, the Greek found in the NT, by working his or her way through this book. If the student is guided by a parent, progress would be even more assured. (And, mom or dad would learn the basics of the language of the NT as well!)
The book is filled with clever illustrations, excellent exercises, and simple yet clear explanations.
After reading and working through this book, one should be able to say and write the Greek alphabet, identify several hundred Greek words, and translate simple phrases and sentences from the Greek NT.
By the way, the author is a solid Free Grace proponent and a longtime member of GES. I recommend this book highly for anyone wishing to learn more about the language of the NT.
