“Just what serious students of NT Greek need: a real confrontation
with contemporary Hellenistic discourse that’s meaningful and comparable to NT
parenetic texts, accompanied by helps that force thinking about Greek in Greek
terminology and listening to Greek the way it really sounded.”

Carl Conrad, Associate Professor of Classics Emeritus, Washington University, St. Louis, MO

“As a linguist I appreciate the skillful and reasonable reconstruction of the ancient
sounds and the accuracy and clarity of these readings. The smoothness encourages
repeated listenings. I cannot recommend this approach highly enough for students
of first-century Greek.”

Chet Creider, Professor and Co-Director, Linguistics Program, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada
