For people who want to keep and improve their knowledge of Greek, integration into some part of daily life is vital. What better way to incorporate this principle than with a devotional book. A brand new work, Devotions on the Greek New Testament fills the gap for ongoing language study, offering both instruction and inspiration. This 52-week devotional was written by 31 Greek scholars, three of whom are women. Each reading is focused on a particular passage from the Greek New Testament. The Greek text is at the top of the first page of each one, followed by an explanation of how understanding the day’s passage in Greek matters for your life and ministry.
Based on a careful reading and study of the Greek New Testament, this exceptional work encourages pastors, teachers and students to continue to use their Greek Bibles beyond their seminary years.
Contributors include Scot McKnight, Daniel B. Wallace, Craig L. Blomberg, Mark Strauss, and William D. Mounce, among others. The main point each devotion offers comes from a careful reading of the passage in the Greek New Testament, not from the English Bible. These authors use a variety of exegetical approaches in their devotions: grammatical, lexical, rhetorical, sociohistorical, linguistic, etc. Each devotion closes with a practical application. Even if you don’t know Greek but want to benefit from those who have an expertise in the language, this is a great book to have in your Accordance library.
