This little book was designed to introduce you to some basic principles of modern Greek. Specifically, it is intended to get you talking with your new Greek colleagues, neighbors, and friends as quickly as possible. Most importantly, this book is meant to be fun! We all learned our first language when we were kids. That's a fact worth keeping in mind. In one sense, learning the basics of another language asks that you become a little kid again, that you do things little kids do all the time: that you enjoy yourself without fear, that you make mistakes without worry, and that you play. If you can do that, if you play with the material that we've put together for you in this little book, then you'll learn some basic Greek, and you'll have fun doing it. Now, stop reading this English! Go GET YOUR GREEK ON!

Seminarians spend countless hours mastering biblical languages and learning how the knowledge of them illuminates the reading, understanding, and application of Scripture. But while excellent language acquisition resources abound, few really teach students how to maintain their use of Greek for the long term. Consequently, pastors and other former Greek students find that under the pressures of work, ministry, preaching, and life, their hard-earned Greek skills begins to disappear.Con Campbell has been counseling one-time Greek students for years, teaching them how to keep their language facility for the benefit of those to whom they minister and teach. He shows how following the right principles makes it possible for many to retain—and in some cases regain—their Greek language skills.Pastors will find Keep Your Greek an encouraging and practical guide to strengthening their Greek abilities so that they can make linguistic insights a regular part of their study and teaching. Current students will learn how to build skills that will serve them well once they complete their formal language instruction.

A Life in Ruins

The first biography of a visionary twentieth-century American performer who devoted her life to the revival of ancient Greek culture This is the first biography to tell the fascinating story of Eva Palmer Sikelianos (1874–1952), an American actor, director, composer, and weaver best known for reviving the Delphic Festivals. Yet, as Artemis Leontis reveals, Palmer’s most spectacular performance was her daily revival of ancient Greek life. For almost half a century, dressed in handmade Greek tunics and sandals, she sought to make modern life freer and more beautiful through a creative engagement with the ancients. Along the way, she crossed paths with other seminal modern artists such as Natalie Clifford Barney, Renée Vivien, Isadora Duncan, Susan Glaspell, George Cram Cook, Richard Strauss, Dimitri Mitropoulos, Nikos Kazantzakis, George Seferis, Henry Miller, Paul Robeson, and Ted Shawn. Brilliant and gorgeous, with floor-length auburn hair, Palmer was a wealthy New York debutante who studied Greek at Bryn Mawr College before turning her back on conventional society to live a lesbian life in Paris. She later followed Raymond Duncan (brother of Isadora) and his wife to Greece and married the Greek poet Angelos Sikelianos in 1907. With single-minded purpose, Palmer re-created ancient art forms, staging Greek tragedy with her own choreography, costumes, and even music. Having exhausted her inheritance, she returned to the United States in 1933, was blacklisted for criticizing American imperialism during the Cold War, and was barred from returning to Greece until just before her death. Drawing on hundreds of newly discovered letters and featuring many previously unpublished photographs, this biography vividly re-creates the unforgettable story of a remarkable nonconformist whom one contemporary described as “the only ancient Greek I ever knew.”

Debbie Matenopoulos, the first member of her family born in America, grew up in a traditional Greek household, eating delicious, authentic Greek cooking that her family had passed down for generations. By the time Debbie had started her television career in New York on The View, she began eating a standard American diet. But despite carefully limiting how much she ate, she found herself gaining weight and lacking energy. As Debbie’s career as an entertainment news reporter and television host on BS, MTV, E!, and other networks had her constantly on the go, she was grabbing whatever food was readily available. It was only when she returned to her traditional Greek diet that she found herself easily—and healthily—realizing her natural weight and regaining her natural energy, stamina, and physique. Now, in It's All Greek to Me, Debbie shares 120 of her family's traditional Greek recipes and adds her own touch to make them even healthier and easier to prepare. After tasting Debbie’s dishes, such as her mouthwatering version of Spanakopita (Spinach Feta Pie), Kalamaria Kaftera (Spicy Calamari), her family’s secret recipe for Baklava, and, of course, Arni kai Patates (Classic Roasted Leg of Lamb with Potatoes)—you’ll be amazed these delicious foods are good for you. With a foreword by Dr. Michael Ozner, one of the nation’s leading cardiologists, the recipes in It’s All Greek to Me adhere to the healthiest diet on the planet: the traditional Mediterranean Diet. Modern science is catching up to what Greeks have known for millennia: health comes from eating natural, whole-food ingredients that haven’t been processed or pumped full of hormones, antibiotics, or preservatives. Let It’s All Greek to Me bring your friends and family together to share in the experience of a Greek meal and way of life. Opa! A portion of all proceeds will benefit the ALS Association.

Der egoistische und schöne griechische Gott Triton wird von Zeus vom Olymp verbannt, nachdem er dessen Geliebte verführt hat. Er darf nur wieder zurückkehren, wenn er die Liebe einer sterblichen Frau gewinnt, die ihn wegen seiner Güte und Selbstlosigkeit liebt, nicht aber seiner Schönheit wegen. Als die sterbliche Sophia, die sich gerade von einer Augenoperation erholt und praktisch blind ist, einen Pfleger braucht, übernimmt Triton die Rolle, in der Hoffnung, sich dadurch seinen Weg nach Hause zu verdienen. Als er Sophia gegen einen Feind verteidigen muss, regt sich Tritons Beschützerinstinkt. Zur gleichen Zeit unternehmen feindselige Götter alles, um sein Vorhaben scheitern zu lassen. Und selbst wenn Triton Sophias Liebe gewinnen kann: Wird er sie enttäuschen und nach Hause zurückkehren, oder verliert er sein Herz an die einzige Frau, die ihn wirklich sieht? Ein Grieche für alle Fälle ist das erste Buch in der humorvollen paranormalen Liebesromanserie Jenseits des Olymps, die den romantischen Abenteuern von vier Göttern folgt: Triton, Dionysos, Eros und Hermes.
