“Why hasn’t anybody ever written a little book like this before? First-year Greek students should read it. Exegesis students should read it. Preachers who have had a year or two of Greek should read it. And it’s so short and straightforward, the same person should read it in all three capacities. Do what Con Campbell says and you will keep your Greek. But don’t just believe him; read the exchanges from his blogsite which he includes that prove it!” -- Craig L. Blomberg, PhD

Keep Your Greek is a book I wish I had 10 years ago. As much as I appreciated the professors helping me learn Greek and Hebrew they didn’t teach how to maintain those languages nor to develop the habits necessary for maintaining them. But better late than never.
The most important thing as Keep Your Greek reminds is to be in the Greek regularly. Take steps to have it as a part of your life. Build it in to your routine.
And I deeply appreciated the JB Lightfoot quote. Prayer is essential to learning Gods Word regardless of the language.
In his book Keep Your Greek: Strategies for Busy People, Constantine Campbell has done a great service for the minister and layman by writing a book that encourages and motivates the reader to get back into the Greek New Testament on a regular and consistent basis. In a very concise manner-ten chapters, an appendix, and a list of resources-Campbell outlines some practical tips for the person desiring to return to his Greek text. The chapters are as follows:
Read Every day
Burn Your Interlinear
Use Software Tools Wisely
Make Vocabulary Your Friend
Practice Your Parsing
Use Your Sense
Get Your Greek Back
Putting It All Together
What made this book so useful and enjoyable is that it was a great reminder for me to daily read my Greek text. Often times I can go days without cracking open my NA27 or UBS4. Campbell strongly reinforced the importance of daily reading from the Greek, even if it is only for 10-15 minutes at a time. One example that I found so useful was his discussion of a musician and his practice time. Campbell relates his personal story as a musician, and that by practicing for a little each day is far greater than practicing for a long period on one day, to the study of the Greek New Testament.
HAving read Campbell before, I knew that I would find his work enjoyable and insightful, and he did not disappoint. He has taken an important subject and made it accessible and very practical. If you do not leave feeling energized to pick up your game and get back into the Greek New Testament, then you do not deserve to have a Greek New Testament.
