Beginning Grammars

Has anyone used A. K. M. Adam’s A Grammar for New Testament Greek?

I’m perusing it right now. And while its short on examples (a teacher would have to fill in a lot of examples following the grammar explanations), its discussions of Aspect are excellent:

“The aorist tense indicates perfective or aoristic aspect, which means that it depicts tht action as a unified whole or a complete event rather than as an extended process” (22).

Probably the best I’ve seen in a beginning grammar thus far.

The author also has a blog.
