RBL Review of The UBS Greek New Testament: A Reader's Edition

Steven R. Johnson, review of Barclay M. Newman, ed., The UBS Greek New Testament: A Reader's Edition, Review of Biblical Literature (2008).

This is a very nice review which includes some important details for those interested in making the best use of this new tool. Steven R. Johnson is Assistant Professor of Religion at Lycoming College, Williamsport, PA. Here are a few of his concluding remarks.
Caveats aside, the publication of the Reader’s Edition is good news. It can be an excellent tool for pastors wanting to maintain or revive their facility in Greek for the purpose of reading the New Testament and for scholars and advanced students of Greek who desire to sit down and simply read the New Testament. Further, provided that they use the Reader’s Edition as it is intended, intermediate-level Greek students might benefit from the Reader’s Edition most of all.
