Words arc fascinating things, particularly when they are Greek words - for Greek is one of the richest of all languages. Here are seventy key words of the Greek New Testament, with their background and significance expounded by a master in the art of teaching. 'Dr Barclay's enthusiasm is infectious, and he gives to the layman an interesting introduction to the Greek language,' as the Times Literary Supplement has said. Another reviewer (in Theology) has noted the appeal even to those who possess Greek. 'Preachers', he added, 'will find that some very useful work has been done for them,' When some of these studies had been printed in the British Weekly, the editor wrote: 'This particular scholar was so saturated in the things he knew, so excited by them. also, and so in touch with the people to whom he wanted to tell what he knew, that he brought them together with ease.' William Barclay was Professor of New Testament in the University of Glasgow.
