Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics is the best, most up-to-date, and most popular Greek Grammar available. The principles of grammar are thoroughly explained and easy to understand. One of the greatest strengths of this grammar are the in-depth discussions of the grammatical principles to specific passages throughout the New Testament. As a result, perhaps the most popular feature of the book has been the scripture index which lists all the places in the grammar where a specific passage is discussed or is given as an example of a particular grammatical principle. It's one of the first places you will want to look when studying a passage because you will want to see if the grammar affects your translation and interpretation.
