Really Great Book

I really cannot recommend this book enough. It is bound in signatures, parses the most difficult words, in addition to giving a quick definition of all words occurring fewer than 30 times in the NT, has non-italic Greek font (large!), has footnotes that are easy to find (contrary to the first edition) because they are listed in a footnote fashion rather than paragraph format, lists parallels in the Gospels at the beginning of each pericope, and has a handy dictionary in the back for all words that occur 30 times or more. If you want the easiest way to improve your Greek, while learning vocab in context, this is the book for you. You can even read the Greek NT as your devotions.

    [...] such a beast existed before then.  Ironically, once I found out about this edition, Lane Keister blogged about a new edition produced by the Bible [...]
