I wish he'd aped Heb. 1:1,2 a little more carefully -- "Lots of folks have said lots of stuff, but let's get to the point." Allen's tedious exposition of what "all the other guys" said is good scholarship, but boring reading.
The issue I find REALLY off-putting? His exclusive use of transliterated Greek words, rather than The Real Deal. IMHO, it's safe to assume that anyone interested in this topic would have at least a semester of NT Greek under his belt.
SO -- what is the value of transliterated Greek words? Being able to pronounce the sounds of the words, while not knowing the meaning, can help an uneducated pulpiteer pose as an erudite scholar, perhaps. Readers who love the New Testament enough to read it in the Greek find the labor of reverse-translating english phonemes back into the more familiar Greek words really annoying, and irksome.
