(1) Black, David Alan Black. Learn to Read New Testament Greek. Expanded edition; Nashville: Broadman & Holman, 1994. Learn. This is our primary text and must be studied with great care. (2) Black, David Alan. It’s Still Greek to Me: An Easy-to-Understand Guide to Intermediate Greek. Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 1998. ISGM. This is our secondary text. It is actually designed as a first-semester, second year grammar. It will be especially important at the beginning and end of the course. Still (191 pages) is concise, easy to use, and has two helpful introductory chapters for those who need a refresher or introduction to basic grammar (English, that is!). (3) Aland, Barbara et al., eds. Novum Testamentum Graece. 27th ed.; Stuttgart: Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft, 1993. NA27. This is your Greek New Testament. (4) Bauer, W., F. W. Danker, W. F. Arndt, and F. W. Gingrich, eds. A Greek- English Lexicon of New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature. 3rd ed.; Chicago and London: University of Chicago Press, 2000. (BDAG). If you already own the second edition (BAGD), this is acceptable; but you are strongly encouraged to buy BDAG as soon as you can, since it is the state of the art in Greek lexicography and is vastly improved over the second edition. (5) Greek Flash Pro 2 (Portland, Ore.: Paradigm Software Development, 1996- 98). GFP. A flexible and powerful Greek flash card vocabulary program. The strength of this program is its audio option that will help distance learners drill cards orally. (6) [This book is only required if you want to learn Greek accents. The learning of accents is not required for this course!] Carson, D. A. Greek Accents: A Student’s Manuel. GA
