Dr. Barclay M. Newman was Chair and Chief Translator of the Contemporary English Version (CEV) of the Bible, first published in 1995 by the American Bible Society, then in 2006 by G.P. Putnams Sons (Penguin Books) as Seek Find: The Bible for All People. He was a member of the Old Testament Committee for the Good News Bible (Todays English Version) published in 1976 by the American Bible Society (ABS), and he chaired the revision that was published by the ABS in 1992 as the Good News Translation.
Dr. Florian Voss is senior editor at the German Bible Society with responsibility for the New Testament scholarly editions. He is especially involved in the preparation of revised editions of the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece (NA28) and the UBS Greek New Testament (UBS5). After his studies of theology at the universities of Münster, Zürich, and Tübingen, he worked as a teaching assistant at the University of Saarbrücken. His doctoral thesis is about the relationship of faith and human reason according to the First Letter to the Corinthians.
Cleveland Dawsey5 Stars Out Of 5June 14, 2013Cleveland DawseyQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4The best edition of a UBS Readers Greek Testament I have found. The soft leather is the best cover I have ever had on a Greek testament. I wish the textual notes were more extensive, but this is a reader's edition, so I don't mind. Makes for excellent practice in rapid reading the Greek New Testament.
catdoctorNew AlbanyMSAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5The BestJuly 25, 2011catdoctorNew AlbanyMSAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The bridge between greek class and being able to make good use of the GNT is lots and lots of reading. This is also the nearly impossible part. I won't say that some additional resouces would not be helpful but you can get the job done with this book alone. I appreciate the limited apparatus which is not in my earlier edition. Also the soft cover makes it nice for lap reading and to me is worth the extra bucks. This is a far better choice than the Zondervan or the Perchbacher, both of which I have struggled through. You will never "outgrow" it.
Frank Hamlett5 Stars Out Of 5Best Reader's Greek NT AvailableMarch 8, 2011Frank HamlettQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the most complete Reader's Greek NT available to date. I don't know how it could be improved upon (other than using a genuine leather cover). The content is great. It gives you not only the definition of the Greek words, but also Greek phrases are explained. I love this book. I think it is impossible to improve it so it will never become obsolete or superseded.
The resources available to the Greek student today are just absolutely wonderful.
Dom5 Stars Out Of 5BeautifulDecember 23, 2010DomQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I'm in the process of learning Greek, so don't look to this review for thoughts regarding that or the textual critical notes. What I will say is this: the product is beautiful. The flexisoft is nice and thick, the pages aren't too thin, and the construction seems very sound. The notes with words that occur less frequently take up on average about half the page. The text is a good size and very readable. There's an abbreviations list in the front (defines parsing abbreviations like aor, plpf, sup, etc.), a list of manuscripts referenced w/ a short description of the contents and date, and a dictionary in the back for the more frequent words. Very satisfied. I thought the price was a bit steep, but it literally just came out (I preordered) so I guess that is to be expected.
Q: What is the cover like? I have the UBS Greek Reader Hardcover, great quality and product, cover is thick and hard. What is the quality of this Flexisoft Leather? Any response would be helpful. Thanks.
The cover of this Greek Reader is soft and supple, with the look and feel of genuine leather. The binding is double sewn for durability and lays flat when open.
