The frustrating thing with starting to learn NT Greek is that it takes a while to be able to do anything with it. Once you have completed a basic grammar (I recommend Mounces's Basics of Biblical Greek in the same series), you should buy yourself this as a reward. At last you can put your hard work to good use!
Main reasons to choose this grammar above any other:
1) It is incredible readable considering how in depth it is. Never has a book so scholarly, been so accesible. 2) It is thoroughly evangelical, yet honest - not afraid to challenge traditional evangelical interpretations. 3) It shows the huge difference that knowing NT Greek makes to understanding & teaching the Bible, without ever over-stating the case - it clearly shows the limitations of Greek grammar too. 4) It is so practical! Nobody who teaches the Bible regularly will fail to read more than a few pages without seeing how the grammatical point they are studying will affect their teaching. The emphasis on the exegetical applicability of the grammar is second to none.
No one who teaches the NT should be without a copy - even if you don't read Greek you can glean much and you will be reminded of why you should.
(Final note: this book is ideal for reference purposes, but there is an abridgement of this book (Basics of NT Greek Syntax?) which would perhaps be better for the intermediate student working through from cover to cover)

great for 1st year students at undergraduate level, you set the pace on this home study course. It is without any doubt beneficial for those who wish to advance there degrees further by reading ancient languages specifically when it is to compliment Theological degrees. This little treasure will advance your studies even further.

I self-taught Koine greek from Mounce's book Beginner's Basic Greek in this same series. At the end of that I knew I needed something that went into the nuances more but, for a long time, couldn't find what a book I could afford that looked like it would work for an interested amateur like myself. This book (which I found through Mounce's website) hits the spot perfectly. Clear and lucid, it gives me the sort of help I need.

Be warned if you also come from Mounce's textbook, that this is a longer work and not as easy to work through as Mounce. But well worth the effort.

I recoommend this book for all people interested in New Testament Greek. It's very easy to follow, very well-structured and has a great amount of info.

Helpful summarising under different groupings than most Greek grammars have. Good indexing so easy to find stuff, or a verse that's dealt with.

I've used this text for many years and have now purchased it as a gift for a friend. Very helpful.
