Here's what other professors have to say. . .

Going Deeper with New Testament Greek is certain to become a standard among intermediate Greek grammars. . . . It is up to date, built for the classroom, and aimed at careful exegesis of the Greek New Testament. While I differ on some points, it is my first choice for the classroom.” 

—Constantine R. Campbell, associate professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

Going Deeper with New Testament Greek is the best intermediate Greek textbook I have ever used in over twenty-five years of teaching Greek, primarily because it was written by and designed for those of us who labor in the classroom. . . .”

—J. Scott Duvall, professor of New Testament and J. C. and Mae Fuller Chair of Biblical Studies, Ouachita Baptist University

“. . . The book is a ‘one-stop shop’ so that everything students need to know in a second-year Greek course is contained here.”
