Cowboyology: On Teaching Greek To Seminary Students

Cowboyology: On Teaching Greek To Seminary Students
My friend, co-TMC one-time student, and co-worker (although he is full-time and big-time) at TBS, Clint Humfrey has a great little blurb here on "breaking" Greek newbies. I am more convinced than ever of the absolute necessity of knowing the original languages the Bible was written in - especially as more and more folks freely quote "from the Greek" without having a clue what they are saying.
Piper's chapter on using the languages (cryptically titled "Bitzer was a Banker" in Brothers, We Are Not Professionals) is must-reading for every student of the Word - but especially for every pastor and pastor-wannabe!
