Reboot Your Greek: A Forty-Day New Testament Greek Refresher rekindles the reader's love of reading the Greek New Testament through a step-by-step presentation of basic concepts in easy-to-understand language. Designed to be read in fifteen minutes per day for forty days (thirty minutes per day, counting time for Greek exercises), Reboot Your Greek offers simple explanations of key topics necessary for reading the Greek New Testament with enjoyment. Vocabulary is reintroduced through exposure, not through memorization. The book also introduces helpful tools for maintaining a commitment to regular Greek reading. A glossary offers clear definitions of important terms, and appendices display essential paradigms.
""Reboot Your Greek is for me, and for all who took NT Greek classes in college or seminary . . . and who, upon graduation, promptly forgot most of the Greek once learned. Through gentle nudging, simple explanations, and touches of humor, Darin removes the barriers and provides a forty-day pathway to regain much of what was lost over time. I highly recommend this book!""
--G. Roger Schoenhals, College Prof and Retired Pastor
""Short and easy to read, forty daily reviews of the basics of biblical Greek. Reboot Your Greek will rekindle your passion for learning Greek and the New Testament toward a better and deeper understanding of the word of God. This book is a welcome aid for all at-one-time students of Greek.""
--Jason Valeriano Hallig, author of We Are Catholic (Wipf and Stock, 2016)
""Learning Greek seems like climbing a mountain. Those who struggled through the pain of taking a class on Greek fear climbing the mountain again. Dr. Land provides a pleasant and doable way to review and stay fresh in Greek. No longer do we have to panic but actually have some fun and feel like we are making progress! The simple exercises progress the reader towards a sense of genuine accomplishment.""
--David Ackerman, Field Education Coordinator for the Philippines/Micronesia Field, Church of the Nazarene
""Darin Land shows us in this book that rebooting knowledge of New Testament Greek need not be daunting. . . . In forty 'days' of 45-60 minutes each, Land helps readers reclaim all the hard work they did in Beginning Greek long ago. This book will be of interest to anyone who learned Greek in the past but lost it through the vagaries of life and ministry.""
--Mitchel Modine, Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary
""Nothing quite matches the joy and payoff of being able to read the NT (and Septuagint) in Greek. If you are one of the majority of seminary graduates who have sadly let their Greek lapse, but wish they hadn't, this is the ideal book for you. In a cleverly conceived, pragmatic, and painless way, Dr. Land leads the reader through forty days of a rebooting process that will resuscitate one's Greek and renew access to the original documents.""
