Drawing from his long teaching experience, Gerald Stevens has successfully produced a comprehensive and clear Biblical Greek grammar for beginners and students of the New Testament.
The book presents a practical format for learning, with full indexes and a number of illustrations. Exercises are included within the text, and the answer key is followed by indexes that include vocabulary, principal parts, paradigms and subjects. An appendix of English grammar helps the student link the two languages.

... a highly effective way to teach Greek to beginning students. Stevens once again accomplished his goal, even with a sense of humor along the way. I highly recommend this Greek Primer for all beginning Greek students. Renate Viveen Hood, LeTourneau University
Stevens's Primer sets a new standard for Greek grammars and will richly reward anyone who uses it. Robert A. Bryant, Presbyterian College
For students who struggle with the foundations of grammar in English even before starting to study Greek, the chapters that review English grammar concepts will be a welcome aid that most Greek grammars fail to offer. William F. Warren, Jr., New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
