"Dobson's text is quite accessible to the self-taught student. There are extensive translation exercises with the answers on the right side of the page (which makes checking one's progress a simple matter). There are progress tests with answers in the back. . . . For a person learning on their own, or intimidated by grammar, or looking for a tasty introduction, it may fit the bill nicely."

Charles K. Telfer,

Mid-America Journal of Theology

"Greek teachers who employ the classic method of teaching Greek--using ending charts and paradigms--can benefit from using exercises from this book as well as Dobson's clever Word Fun sections. . . . Dobson gives a good emphasis on translating the meaning of the Greek phrase or sentence rather than striving for a simple word-for-word correspondence. . . . His hints for teaching biblical languages are insightful and helpful."

James R. Wicker,

Southwestern Journal of Theology

"A complete course in beginning Greek. It contains 52 lessons that take the beginner from an introduction to the language to translating the New Testament from Greek to English. . . . The lessons are well written and very easy to follow. . . . When you complete the course you'll be able to read the entire Greek New Testament and translate it into English. . . . I highly recommend Learn New Testament Greek by John Dobson to anyone that wants to learn New Testament Greek quickly and easily. This course is well-suited for laymen, students, and preachers and teachers that want to incorporate Greek into their lessons and sermons."
