Description

Learning Greek is one thing. Retaining it and using it in preaching, teaching, and ministry is another. Greek for Life offers practical guidance, inspiration, and motivation to help readers learn, retain, and use Greek for ministry, setting them on a lifelong journey of reading and loving the Greek New Testament. The book also surveys helpful resources for recovering Greek after a long period of disuse and includes devotional thoughts from the Greek New Testament.

"Merkle and Plummer have written a charming and immensely practical book on how to retain and even regain knowledge of Greek. I am thrilled to recommend this book, which so effectively instructs and motivates us to continue studying the Greek New Testament."
--Thomas R. Schreiner, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Clearheaded, relevant, and oh so timely! Merkle and Plummer provide a compelling case for Greek and a surefooted guide to retaining it. Greek for Life has the potential to pull us back from the brink and to silence those who suggest, either explicitly or implicitly, that the rules have changed and that the study of the Greek New Testament is passé. It is not time to give away the game, and Merkle and Plummer show us why and how to persevere."
--Jay E. Smith, Dallas Theological Seminary

"Merkle and Plummer have produced a very practical and useful book for beginning and returning students of Greek. Learning and retaining the language can be an intimidating prospect, but they show us that being lifelong students--even when we are convinced that we do not have the time--is important, rewarding, and definitely doable. By providing constructive tips, encouraging words, and examples of how knowing Greek makes a difference in our understanding of the Word, these experienced teachers make their case that every student can learn the language and apply it profitably in life and ministry."
--Michelle Lee-Barnewall, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
