Review quote

I have learned lots from this book myself - it is extremely detailed and Prof. Betts is clearly extremely knowledgeable about this particular form of Greek. -- Cressida Ryan, Instructor in New Testament Greek, Faculty of Theology and Religion, University of Oxford I find the book excellent... This book would most certainly be a very good choice for any introductory module. I found it very easy to read. The author has a very pleasant and down to earth manner. The fact that most examples are taken directly from the New Testament makes the study very interesting and encouraging. -- Dr Georg Walser, Senior Lecturer, University of Gothenburg
