You'll Want To Read This If You Want Your Greek To Get Better

I have a lot (and I mean a lot!) of love for B and H. (Side note: I wish Blogger would fix the issue with using the symbol for the word "and.") The guys over at B and H are living for the gospel. I'm super thankful for all their work in the gospel. I just had to tell you all that.

Moving on, there is a guest post by Todd Scacewater over at their blog. How can you get better at your Greek? Why even get better? Great questions. At the very least, you'll want to sign up for their weekly email and get signed up to win those books. Five people will get 'em. All of them are in my library. I was on the team that translated Dave Black's Greek grammar into Spanish, which Energion published. Needless to say, I think it is the best introductory Greek grammar available today. Well, they're giving away the English. Then they have three volumes of the EGGNT series. I've worked with B and H in the editing of those manuscripts, so I'm familiar with each of them. That's a great series, folks, especially since it gets you thinking about syntactical issues. Syntax is often the hardest thing to get your brain around unless you're in the habit of thinking through the options. The EGGNT will get you thinking about the different ways syntax can affect the way you interpret a passage.
