We are excited to release the Essential Greek New Testament (thank you, James, for the title).
This book represents a new approach to the study of the Biblical Greek by allowing an absolute Greek beginner to start “reading” the Greek New Testament from the first day. As such, it will establish itself as an indispensable resource for those who would like to get a glimpse of the New Testament in the original. The compilation of resources will also be useful to those who have some knowledge of Biblical Greek.
For a limited time only, we set the introductory price to $4.99. Get your copy.
It was suggested that the working title for the upcoming publication (i.e. Greek NT for (Absolute) Beginners; see previous post) is somewhat bland. We need a title that would convey to people that this is the publication that they absolutely must have and can’t live without (which it is, of course :)).
Our own brainstorming has come up with:
- Ultimate Greek New Testament for Absolute Beginners
- Greek New Testament for the Rest of Us
- Practical Greek New Testament (subtitle: “Read this Greek NT even if you don’t read Greek” or “Learn Koine Greek with Us”)
- and … The One Greek New Testament You Must Have
Well, what do you think? Would you share your ideas about the title? If we select your title, we’ll give you any book in the OSNOVA Store for free.
We are putting finishing touches on the Greek New Testament for Absolute Beginners (a working title). It was done for personal reasons. We don’t read Greek. We made it as useful as possible for ourselves, in other words it will be a useful tool for those who don’t know Greek but want to read the NT in its original. It will combine parallel Greek and English texts, will link each Greek word with a code identifying its grammatical categories and the included Greek lexicon. This new e-book will contain many more useful features for those who don’t read Greek but want to study it or simply “read” the Greek NT (I know one of my friends would say it’s a dangerous thing). Screenshots after the cut. Let us know what you think.
This Kindle edition from OSNOVA includes a number of navigational aids such as Direct Verse Jump and hyperlinked table of contents; short instructions on their use are included in the book itself with more detailed instructions available here. Available only from the OSNOVA Store because Amazon has rejected the submission (reason: “unsupported language”).
THE NEW TESTAMENT was written in Koine Greek during the first century AD. From the time of its original revelation, handwritten copies continually were prepared in order tomaintain and preserve that original text into the modern era. All copies made prior to the invention of movable-type printing were made by hand, resulting in various scribal alterations, most of these being of a minor nature. Although the autographs no longer exist and no two manuscript copies are completely identical, sufficient evidence exists by which one can produce an accurate representation of the original text by comparing and evaluating the overall manuscript consensus. Robinson and Pierpont have taken the utmost care in preparing that text for this edition.
