                   Reviewer: IK JONG LEE (see more about me)
                   from Seoul, Seoul South Korea
                   This book has 277 pages. The first part of the book(more 
than 80
                   pages) consists of selections from the Old and New 
Testaments, and
                   Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha. The next parts are the 
selections from
                   Philo, Jesephus, Early Christian Literature, Greek 
papyri and
                   inscriptions, and the Pagan Hellenistic Greek. The Greek 
words are
                   indexed on page 211 through the end. A short 
introduction in English
                   was presented to every theme or to every author of the 
Greek text.

                   The book was published more than half century ago (in 
1947). Printed
                   in old typography on the old paper. Letters are small, 
but legible.
                   Recommendable for those who would like to read original 
                   text(especially in Koine Greek).
