What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

There is simply no better place to start learning Greek accentuation than right here with this book. -- Constantine R. Campbell, Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Greek accents are a seemingly impenetrable haze to most students of the New Testament. John Lee's Basics of Greek Accents cuts through the fog in a pedagogically humane way. Well laid out and easy to digest, this book offers a straightforward, step-by-step approach to the acquisition of Greek accentuation for any who want to master this language. I recommend it even for the beginner because knowledge of the accents is essential for learning the language properly from the get-go. It is much easier to have good habits of pronunciation from the start than to unlearn bad habits later on. -- Daniel B. Wallace, senior research professor, New Testament, Dallas Theological Seminary

In G. K. Chesterton's autobiography, he writes, 'As for Greek accents, I triumphantly succeeded, through a long series of school-terms, in avoiding learning them at all.' If many a Greek teacher is honest, his or her knowledge of Greek accents may not be too far behind Chesterton's. Thankfully, in this compact and well-written new book, John Lee guides both professors and students to a competency in Greek accents. Thanks are due to Dr. Lee for producing a resource that has been needed for generations. -- Robert L. Plummer, professor of New Testament interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

From the author of the magisterial History of New Testament Lexicography, here comes an eminently useful and practical tool on Greek accents and ndash; for students, teachers, and editors alike. Highly recommended! -- Andreas J. Köstenberger, senior research professor of New Testament and biblical theology, Southeastern Baptist Theological Sem
