Ten techniques for keeping your knowledge of Greek fresh long after college.
Seminarians spend countless hours mastering biblical languages and learning how the knowledge of them illuminates the reading, understanding, and application of Scripture. But while excellent language acquisition resources abound, few really teach students how to maintain their use of Greek for the long term. Consequently, many pastors and other former Greek students find that under the pressures of work, ministry, preaching, and life, their hard-earned Greek skills begin to disappear.
Constantine Campbell has been counseling one-time Greek students for years, teaching them how to keep their language facility for the benefit of their ministry. In Keep Your Greek, he shows how following the right principles makes it possible for many to retain--and in some cases regain--their Greek language skills.
In Keep Your Greek, you will acquire strategies such as,
- How to wisely use Bible software tools so that you don't become dependent on them.
- How different methods of reading practices can assist your memory and keep you from becoming discouraged.
- How to make time to keep up on your language skills for the sake of your busy ministry.
Pastors will find Keep Your Greek an encouraging and practical guide to strengthening their Greek abilities. Current students will learn how to build skills that will serve them well once they complete their formal language instruction.
Loosing a skill or knowledge set is always discouraging, but with a little guidance, you can dust off your Greek and continue making linguistic insights a regular part of your study and teaching.
