As I mentioned in a recent post I am taking Intermediate Greek in a summer module. The module starts in the middle of May. As with all classes there are a variety of required texts (see below). However, the syllabus from previous years has the ominous warning, “Students are expected to consult works beyond the required textbooks in the completion of assignments.” I’ve no reason to believe that this expectation will change this year. As I result, I’m putting out a call for recommendations on books beyond the required texts for the course that I might want to have on hand. Some I may buy, but I really want to get an idea of what I should be looking for in the reference section of the library.
NA27 or UBS4
Lexical Aids for Students of New Testament Greek by Metzger
Idioms of the Greek New Testament by Porter
A Grammatical Analysis of the Greek New Testament by Zerwick and Grosvener
Greek Grammar: Beyond the Basics by Wallace
Those are the required texts. They aren’t too horribly priced, but BDAG made me gasp the first time I saw the (for me) very high figure. Still, I’ll need that book in more than just this class, so it’s worth it. Beyond these, any recommendations regarding other works on Greek syntax, grammar, morphology, or what have you?
