A Graded Reader is designed to help students with little Greek to begin working through New Testament texts on their own. The book contains samplings from most books of the NT (it omits James), from the LXX and from the Didache. Each text has an introduction, vocabulary and exegetical discussion followed at the end by a grammatical summary. Students will find this guided approach boosts their confidence. Readers should be aware however that the book contains some peculiar features, such as frequent grammatical questions without any answers. Students are also frequently told to refer to this or that work outside the book to find the answers. Mounce pushes one of his personal methods called "phrasing" which involves breaking the text into phrases and individual units. Personally, I find this method less helpful because it focuses on minutiae at the expense of broader grammatical structures and it conveys the impression everything in the text carries equal weight. If students bear these limitations in mind they have much to gain from this book.
