Laansma and Gauthier have developed a new approach to an old problem--how to parse difficult verb forms. A helpful feature of this book is their treating all compounded forms of a verb in the same list. This will no doubt be a welcome aid to students of New Testament Greek as they learn to identify these forms for themselves.--Stanley E. Porter"McMaster Divinity College" (08/01/2017) Many students of New Testament Greek need help in the leap from basic introductory courses to efficient and enjoyable reading of the text. One part of that hurdle is the mastery of irregular verbs. Here is a set of fine tools to help you overcome the challenge. The key part of this volume is a listing of all irregular verbs, in both their simplex and their compound forms, in decreasing frequency of usage. That means the student can set realistic goals in the pursuit of the mastery of forms, gradually tackling the rarer forms. And if that student is really wise, he or she will use this tool in conjunction with regular reading of the Greek New Testament.--D. A.
