Today I am pleased to announce the release of my latest book, co-authored with my friend Jordan Day, titled ἡ ὁδός: The Path To Learning Greek. This book is an illustrated guide (all "in color"!) meant to help students on their journey toward learning and becoming fluent in ancient Koine Greek. It contains vocabulary terms that are immediately useful in daily life, a feature which helps ancient Greek come alive for learners. The illustrations are fun and the audio companion files (which can be purchased separately) also add the helpful dimension of sound; together these things engage a variety of senses, which assist students in internalizing the language more effectively. ἡ ὁδός: The Path to Learning Greek can function as a textbook or supplement to any ancient Greek class, Koine or Classical. You can see a sample below and get your copy on Amazon.com HERE or via one of Amazon's distributors HERE. You can get the audio via the GlossaHouse website (set to launch June 1st!) or, in the meantime, by contacting me by clicking HERE.
Check out what folks are saying about ἡ ὁδός:
“Wouldn't it be great to become fluent in Koine Greek, so that you could read and enjoy the New Testament in its original language? ἡ ὁδός, by Halcomb and Day, is a great way to start your journey toward that goal. Chock-full of everyday vocabulary that makes ancient Greek come alive, ἡ ὁδός will provide you with essential tools to help you immerse yourself in the language of the Greek Bible. I will be recommending this work to all my students.”
-Daniel R. Streett, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Greek and New Testament, Criswell College
“I have never reviewed a more fun book since I began reviewing books. ἡ ὁδός is extremely well done, accomplishes its purpose, and should be a fine supplement to any ancient Greek class, Koine or Classical.”
-N.E. Barry Hofstetter, M.A., Th.M.
Instructor of Classics, The American Academy
“A book such as ἡ ὁδός, making effective use of visual helps to internalize Ancient Greek, is long overdue. Lively, engaging, well-executed and conceived, this Rosetta-stone like resource will find a receptive audience hungry for creative alternatives for learning Ancient Greek. Learners at any level will benefit from the simplicity of the sentences reinforced by the pictures. The Greek is both authentic and well-structured for learning Greek as a Living Language. κύδος ὑμῖν.”
