"The Discovery Bible New Testament is a landmark volume. It makes available to students of the English Bible dimensions of meaning that the Greek verb tenses and word-order convey, but that cannot be expressed in ordinary translations because English is a less subtle language. The markings in the text and the glossary of synonyms reflect impeccable linguistic scholarship. The system of symbols is easy to learn and the effect of working with the volume is like adding color to black-and-white photos.
"The would-be teacher who wants to bring out the full weight of meaning that the New Testament carries now has two choices. One is to spend some years studying Greek, classical as well as New Testament, so as to be able to spot each nuance accurately for oneself. The other is to use The Discovery Bible, and start getting it all right as of now. Gary Hill and Gleason Archer, who devised this precious students' aid, deserve our profoundest thanks."
Walter Kaiser, Jr., previous Academic Dean, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL and former President, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, MA,
"The method employed in The Discovry Bible New Testament is so totally new that no current aids to Bible study fulfill the same task envisaged in this major triumph in New Testament scholarship."
John MacArthur, pastor, Grace Community Church; author; radio speaker,
"The Discovery Bible New Testament, by Gary Hill, opens the meaning of the Greek text even to those who don’t have the advantage of being able to do firsthand language study."
R. C. Sproul, Ligonier Ministries, professor, radio speaker,
" . . . an outstanding tool for understanding the New Testament. The care in its preparation is outstanding. Here is a book that is as useful as it is profound."
Dr. Norman Geisler, prolific author, professor,
" . . . the very valuable aid of understanding the emphasis of the original Greek, not otherwise available to the English reader. It is a very valuable tool for the English student of Scripture."
Philip Edgcumbe Hughes, famed Anglican commentator on the Greek New Testament,
"The Discovery Bible New Testament is a product of precise and expert scholarship. It will not take the place of the original text in the Greek language, but it will open the way for deeper study and understanding of the sacred text for those whose linguistic competence is limited to the English language. Indeed, I venture the opinion that The Discovery Bible will be a safer guide to sane interpretation of the text than the acquisition of a superficial acquaintance with the original language. The admonition of Alexander Pone: 'A little learning is a dangerous thing; drink deep or taste not the Pierian spring,' applies with special force to well-meaning Bible students who dabble in Greek and Hebrew. I commend The Discovery Bible as a valuable source of learning for those who are willing to apply their minds to the instruction it provides."
Dr. Nigel Turner, (Oxford) Grammar of New Testament Greek, Vols. 3,4,
" . . . a most important work."
Dr. James Boice, pastor, former Tenth Presbyterian Church, author,
"In The Discovery Bible New Testament, Dr. Gleason Archer and Mr. Gary Hill have provided the student who does not know Greek with an accurate and most valuable Bible study tool."
Dr. Earl Radmacher, former President, Western Conservative Baptist Seminary,
" . . . a unique tool, . . . helps to convey more vividly the emphasis and emotion of the original Greek."
Dr. W. A. Criswell, former pastor, First Baptist Church, Dallas, TX,
"The Discovery Bible New Testament has accomplished the impossible. . . . Here is one volume that should be placed in the hands of every serious Christian layman."
John F. Walvoord, former President and Chancellor, Dallas Theological Seminary,
"The Discovery Bible New Testament is a breakthrough in clarifying truth."
Dr. Paige Patterson, President, SW Baptist Seminary,
" . . . This Moody Press publication is an enormous favor for pastors and congregations alike."
Dr. Harold Lindsell, Editor-emeritus, Christianity Today,
"The Discovery Bible New Testament should be in the hands of every Bible student. . . . The book can be recommended without mental reservation."
Dr. Ray Stedman, pastor, Peninsula Bible Church,
"The treasures of the Greek NT are made fully available to an English reader through this book."
Ted Engstrom, President emeritus, World Vision,
"The Discovery Bible New Testament opens up new avenues of study and understanding for the serious student of the Scriptures."
Leon Morris, former principal of Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia,
"I am full of admiration for the work that has gone into The Discovery Bible New Testament. Thank you very much for sending me a copy. The sheer physical labor of marking all the tenses must have been immense and the working out of where the emphasis in Greek goes in every sentence must have been just as demanding. I do congratulate you on what you have accomplished. And I am sure that what you have done will be of great help to many sincere students of Scripture who lack a knowledge of Greek. It was a breath-taking concept to mark out a New Testament in the way you have done and you must be very happy with the extent to which you have succeeded."
Bill Bright, former President, Campus Crusade for Christ International,
" . . . I congratulate you on the tremendous contribution which you and Dr. Archer have made to a better understanding of Scripture."
" . . . enables readers to recover what was lost in translation from Greek to English. Its approach is unique, . . . Thus, readers gain many of the benefits of studying Greek without having to learn the language."
"The compactness of The Discovery Bible New Testament puts into one volume the kind of information it would take many commentaries and other study helps to supply."
Jerry Rose, former President, National Religious Broadcasters, TV 38, Chicago, Illinois,
"The Discovery Bible New Testament has opened up new insights into the Bible that have never been made available before."
