Only a relatively recent grammar will provide the sort of overview and
evaluation that you are requesting.

"Koine," "hellenistic," and "biblical" Greek are essentially synonymous.
There are precious few non-biblical koine grammars that I'm aware of, so it
depends on what grammar you have. Those intermediate grammars that I listed
would be well worth owning. For biblical studies, I'd prefer Wallace and
Porter, with Young a close third. There are other major grammars (Robertson,
BDF, Moulton, etc.), but they are somewhat dated (though still serviceable
for many purposes).
