Chris Caragounis on NT Greek

What a horrible frigging last day. I tell you, these evil German ‘tummy bugs’ don’t take prisoners; they mercilessly cause you to throw up for the whole night long – literally –, and then wake you up for the next day with the mother of all headaches, and a fever so malicious you could fry eggs on your cheeks.

Thank God that I’m feeling a bit better now.

Anyway, enough self-pity; time for good news. Some of you may remember that I posted about Chrys Caragounis’ excellent and important work, The Development of Greek and the New Testament. Morphology, Syntax, Phonology, and Textual Transmission, last January. The work generated some surprisingly strong debate with Moses Silva, yet Chrys has helpfully detailed the dispute and uploaded his response on his webpage, here.

Chrys e-mailed about a week ago to happily inform me that Baker Academic is about to publish a considerably more affordable paperback edition. It should appear around Christmas 2006.
