The Book I Wish I Had Read In Seminary

August 13, 2012

Keep Your Greek: Strategies For Busy People by Constantine R. Campbell (Zondervan, 2010) is the book I wish I had read in Seminary.The basic principles and practical suggestions layed out in the book would have been very helpful in developing habits to keep my Greek fresher over the years of ministry and teaching. The 10 chapters cover real issues like interlinear, software, vocabulary and getting your Greek back. Each chapter includes blog responses from both students and teachers responding to the advice originally spelled out in Dr. Campbell’s blog which make the book easy to read and apply. Of particular interest was the chapter on helpful tools and resources including both books and websites which was a goldmine of usable tools to use immediately. Dr. Campbell is a bit hard on interlinear Greek New Testaments but other than that looking back over 30 years of Greek study he gets everything exactly right. I just wished I had had the book to earn from decades ago and not learned things through the school of hard knocks ( and forgotten vocabulary) 🙂
