“A brilliant idea, successfully executed! Anyone interested in grasping key issues in the modern study of New Testament Greek can do no better than read this clear and excellent survey.” -- Moisés Silva, Retired professor of New Testament, author, and editor
“Want to get up to speed on recent research in New Testament Greek? There is no better book (in fact, this is the only book!). Con Campbell leads you expertly through the complexities of advances in scholarship so you can be a better teacher, preacher, and student of the Word. Highly recommended!” -- Andreas J. Köstenberger, Professor of Biblical Theology and New Testament, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
“Students --- and even some professors! --- whose experience with Koine Greek has been limited primarily to standard elementary and intermediate textbooks, would be astounded to know the height and breadth and depth of work that has been accomplished on the original language of the New Testament in recent years. We live in a time in which great advances are taking place in a variety of directions, but both the specialized nature of the discussions and their relegation to stuffy conference rooms and technical journal articles, have limited the needed impact on frontline Greek pedagogy. Enter Con Campbell, who has provided us with a helpful overview of the history and most salient aspects of paradigm-shifting discussions.” -- George H. Guthrie, Benjamin W. Perry Professor of Bible, Union University
