For a few reasons I have avoided including a blogroll in my sidebar. While I’m not creating one just yet, I thought I’d take a handful of posts (in no particular order) to mention some sites I subscribe to and why–five reasons why, to be exact. The first:
Rod Decker’s NT Resources Blog
Rod Decker is Professor of New Testament and Greek at Baptist Bible Seminary, Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania. I ran into Rod’s blog after first having paid the main site, ntresources.com, a few visits. I knew his name sounded familiar when I discovered he preceded my Greek professor at Calvary Bible College and Theological Seminary in Kansas City. Five reasons I subscribe to Rod’s blog and you should, too:
- Rod shares a wealth of tools, lists, and miscellaneous resources for teaching (or learning) Greek (and really a lot of other things) at both the main site and the blog. (Take this as a recent example).
- He highly values the application of Greek grammar and linguistics to NT research and frequently shares insights along these lines (and thereby reminds me not to slack in this area).
- He frequently shares updates about ancient language fonts available in unicode.
- He has a teacher’s heart (just look at the main site)–something that is often undervalued in NT scholarship.
- He loves Greek, macs, and the farm!
