New Testament Greek for Preachers and Teachers is neither a grammar nor a handbook of forms. It is a book about exegesis and, to a lesser degree, exposition, and is designed for the Bible college student or seminarian who has a beginning-level knowledge of Greek. Windham provides a basic introduction to five areasótextual criticism, morphology, word and phrase studies, syntax, and discourseówhere the study of Greek plays a significant role in the interpretive process.

Greece sits at the center of a geopolitical storm that threatens the stability of the European Union. To comprehend how this small country precipitated such an outsized crisis, it is necessary to understand how Greece developed into a nation in the first place. Enlightenment and Revolution identifies the ideological traditions that shaped a religious community of Greek-speaking people into a modern nation-state--albeit one in which antiliberal forces have exacted a high price. Paschalis Kitromilides takes in the vast sweep of the Greek Enlightenment in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, assessing developments such as the translation of modern authors into Greek; the scientific revolution; the rediscovery of the civilization of classical Greece; and a powerful countermovement. He shows how Greek thinkers such as Voulgaris and Korais converged with currents of the European Enlightenment, and demonstrates how the Enlightenment's confrontation with Church-sanctioned ideologies shaped present-day Greece. When the nation-state emerged from a decade-long revolutionary struggle against the Ottoman Empire in the early nineteenth century, the dream of a free Greek polity was soon overshadowed by a romanticized nationalist and authoritarian vision. The failure to create a modern liberal state at that decisive moment is at the root of Greece's recent troubles.
Such was the greatest plague of Greek society—one hundred thousand of them. Their hundreds of monasteries and shrines ... In his earnestness, the enlightened patriot expected the Orthodox clergy to become preachers of republican values.
