I did a thread some time ago on Greek lexicons that was well received, so I thought I'd do a similar one, this time on Greek grammars and helps. Of course, anyone is welcome to add their own reviews. First of all, let me mention the classic beginning grammar by J. Gresham Machen, the great Presbyterian Greek scholar, New Testament Greek for Beginners. You can find a PDF here: http://www.churchlivinglord.com/NT_Greek_Grammar_by_J_Gresham_Machen_1_.pdf. When I first took Greek in the early '70s this was the standard beginning grammar. Then when I taught Greek in Japan at a couple of different Bible schools it was the only one available in Japanese, except for one year when I had to use a handwritten, self-published grammar by a Japanese man, which met the need but barely. Machen's grammar is quite well done, which explains its longevity. (It was first published in 1923.) It goes to 221 pages of instruction and 33 chapters, meaning you have to double up some of the chapters to finish in two semesters if you are teaching it. In the back of the book (pp. 225- are some very handy resources: all of the paradigms (including a luo chart and a -mi verb chart), Greek-English and English-Greek vocab dictionaries, and a good index. There are a couple of weak points. First of all, there has been a lot of research done since Machen was published, both lexical and grammatical. So Machen doesn't have the latest on verbal aspect (the point of view of the writer) and aktionsart (the kind of action the verb portrays). Secondly, there is not a key to the exercises, though one may be bought here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0024206504/?tag=baptis04-20.
