Bill MounceBBG has become the most used English-Greek textbook around the world. When it was first released, it introduced many innovations that are now common place in Greek classrooms. Over 250,000 students have used BBG to move past their English Bibles and into the Greek of the New Testament. It makes learning fun (almost fun for some), reduces memory work to a minimum, and is constantly reminding students why they are learning New Testament Greek.

First published in 1993, Basics of Biblical Greek is the most popular introduction to the field, used in universities and seminaries around the world. Over 200,000 students have learned biblical Greek under its guidance. This significant third edition has been carefully developed in consultation with instructors, students, self-learners, and homeschoolers.

Users can now take advantage of the many improvements made at this website, where they will find — for free — an online course, walking students through every chapter; vocabulary flashcards; video and audio helps; Greek font; quizzes for each chapter; fun songs and games; and much, much more.

Now in a larger size, with an attractive two-color design, the third edition adds an element of fun, with encouragement, songs, and more, which appear in the margins. Chapter 35 has been split in two chapters, "half-time review" sections have been added to every chapter, and new exegesis sections are now included. These and other improvements serve to enhance the learning experience and will continue BBG's legacy as the premiere introduction to biblical Greek.
