The Handy Guide to Difficult and Irregular Greek Verbs is a learning aid for anyone wishing to master New Testament vocabulary, especially those transitioning from beginning courses in Greek to regular reading of the New Testament. By listing irregular verb tenses from most to least frequently used, it fills an empty niche in the student's toolbox. No other such list exists in published form though the necessity of learning irregular verbs is universally recognized. Irregular verbs in Greek are equivalent to the English verb "go" and its past tense "went." The two words aren't intuitively connected, but must be memorized, and the user must know the words are versions of the same verb to find the full entry for "went" in the dictionary. This resource helps students learn those irregular Greek forms that are otherwise difficult to place. This is an excellent resource for pastors, biblical scholars, and anyone who learned Greek years ago and wants to improve their ease of reading the New Testament.

About the Author

Jon C. Laansma is associate professor of ancient languages and New Testament at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. His previous books include 2 Timothy & Titus and Christology, Hermeneutics, and Hebrews. Randall X. Gauthier is an independent researcher living in San Antonio, Texas. His writings include "Examining the 'Pluses' in the Greek Psalter: A Study of the Septuagint Translation Qua Communication" in Septuagint and Reception.


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. Carson, Research Professor New Testament"Trinity Evangelical Divinity School" (08/01/2017)
