'Dr McLean's new reader is fantastic; it fills a huge gap in the support material available for intermediate students of Biblical/Hellenistic Greek who have serious scholarly interests. None of the other available textbooks come close in terms of the choice and range of selections, the level of support to the student, and the high level of scholarship.' Lawrence Myer, independent scholar
'This is a graduated reader (getting progressively more difficult through the ten sections), and that design is pedagogically very attractive. The selections of Greek presented here are first-rate and I would love to use them in the classroom.' Stephen Esposito, Boston University
'As an instrument for reading Greek, the work is very well thought out and executed. Students with various levels of Greek proficiency will appreciate the brief introductions, often including cultural context, the select bibliography, and especially the efficient vocabulary and grammar notes.' Valentina Popescu, University of California, Davis
'This text fills a major gap in the available scholarly literature for the pedagogy of Hellenistic Greek, especially for students of Judaism and Christianity in antiquity. While numerous Greek readers, extracts, selections, chrestomathies, and anthologies have appeared over the past few hundred years, none explores the breadth of Jewish and Christian Hellenistic Greek literature more ably, thoroughly, and expertly than does this one. (Indeed, these supplements are so well-written that this reader could easily double as a sourcebook for the study of ancient Judaism and Christianity!).' Bryn Mawr Classical Review
