Customer Reviews for Zondervan A Reader's Greek New Testament, 2nd edition - Italian Duo-Tone, Burgundy

Zondervan A Reader's Greek New Testament, 2nd edition - Italian Duo-Tone, Burgundy

This Greek text uses the Greek text underlying the NIV as reconstructed by John Kohlenberger and assigns footnotes providing translation glosses to Greek words occurring 30 times or less. Richard Goodrich and Albert Lukaszewski's singular study tool will allow you to focus on parsing and grammatical issues rather than spending valuable time looking up vocabulary words. This text is beautifully bound in the Italian Duo-Tone binding.

Based on customer feedback, this revised edition offers the following features:
  • New Greek font which is easier to read
  • Footnoted definitions of all Greek words occurring 30 times or less
  • Mini-lexicon of all words occurring more than 30 times
  • Greek text underlying Today's New International Version
  • Footnotes offering comparisons with UBS4
Albert Lukaszewski (Ph.D., New Testament, University of Saint Andrews) is general editor of the Lexham Syntactic Greek New Testament project and author of the forthcoming Grammar of Qumran Aramaic.

Richard J. Goodrich (Ph.D., University of St. Andrews) is research fellow in the department of classics and ancient history, University of Bristol, England.

This book is great! RGNT is the best book I've ever been reading. By using this helpful resource I can now read Greek New Testament freely and learn vocab inductively wile reading . The Fonts used is great because they elegant in design and simply to read-I just like it! The appearance is very Great too. The binding is strong and cover is soft and you are able just to put Bible anywhere and book lying flat.I give it fife star and praise GOD for this helpful resource! Every one student of Greek New Testament Should have it!

When you take this out of the box and hold it in your hands it is sweet! The Italian duotone has a great feel and the gold edging adds that dash of elegance. The thinness also adds a measure of tactile delight.But I was disappointed when I opened it up. It is true: the font is really hard to read. An elegant font (although the kappas are horrible) but so thin it is difficult to discern the letters.The last thing I want is another impediment to my reading but the printing is indeed a hinderance.The UBS Greek Reader is far easier to read and the vocabulary notes are arranged in two separate columns making things easy to find. The Zondervan runs all the notes horizontally with no separation creating difficulty locating a reference.IF ONLY we had a Greek Reader's Edition beautifully bound like the Zondervan with the readability of the UBS! I would buy it!

As somebody who enjoys and appreciates the study of New Testament Greek, I am very excited about this updated edition of A Readers Greek New Testament. It will be a good fit for those who are new to the study of New Testament Greek and those whose Greek has gotten a little rusty. Students and scholars pursuing more advanced studies will still have need of an edition containing a more extensive critical apparatus (UBS4 or NA27). If you are somebody who has struggled to learn new languages with memorization and flashcards, the possibility of inductive learning should especially be appealing. In a publishing space that has often had very expensive resources, this new edition of A Readers Greek New Testament comes at a bargain of a price. Many thanks to Zondervan for making this entry point into to the study of New Testament Greek more accessible and more affordable!
