Alexander Souter was a professor of theology for over 40 years, teaching Latin, Greek, early church history, New Testament exegesis, and more. The Alexander Souter Studies in Early Christianity collection contains four of his works that will improve your Bible and original-language study. In The Text and Canon of the New Testament, Souter presents a succinct history of the New Testament books and how they were brought together. With A Pocket Lexicon to the Greek New Testament, he gives the forms of Greek words in the New Testament and their meanings as exactly as possible. And with Hints on Translation from Latin into English and Hints on the Study of Latin (AD 125–750), Souter provides valuable hints and pointers for translating Latin works—practical tips derived from his numerous years of teaching Latin to seminary students.
The Alexander Souter Studies in Early Christianity collection also contains Souter’s English translations of four important Tertullian works: Against Praxeas, and the treatises concerning the resurrection of the flesh, prayer, and baptism. Souter provides an introduction to Tertullian and his works, an introduction to each specific piece, and valuable notes throughout these fresh translations.
