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. K?stenberger, , 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.
