Wonderful help for students

This reading is clear and easy to follow, provided you can read elementary Greek. For the student it is very helpful to read along in a printed Greek New Testament as they listen. This helps bridge from learning a language to actually reading a language. I regret that this version does not allow one to skip to the next track (chapter) of the reading. However, it remains an invaluable tool.

needs table of contents

This recording would be much more useful if there were a downloadable listing of the texts and their locations in the recording. The only way currently available is to listen through texts you don't want to hear until you find the one you want and bookmark it. Very frustrating!

This recording uses the Erasmian pronunciation used by scholars and seminaries. It certainly doesn't sound like someone reading their native language. On the other hand, its clarity is very helpful to the new student who is struggling with the alphabet and pronunciation of the New Testament. Another review criticized the pronunciation because it differs from modern Greek; certainly that's true, but it's not necessarily a drawback, depending on what you want it for.
