Formerly I was a preaching pastor at a church in Spokane, WA, and prior to that a professor of New Testament and director of the Greek Program at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. I also taught at Azusa Pacific University for ten years. I am the author of the bestselling Greek textbook, Basics of Biblical Greek, and many other resources. I was the New Testament chair of the English Standard Version translation of the Bible, and am serving on the NIV translation committee. Robin and I have been married since 1983 and have three children.
