I believe Wayne Coppins began his blog, German for Neutestamentler, at the beginning of last year. His blog is one of the few that I regularly look forward to and read each post. He is committed to trying to bring German and English scholarship together and one of the ways he is trying to do that is through his blog. Most Mondays he provides a English translation of a German work. He not only translates the text but also gives textual notes for his translation process. If you are looking for a new blog to begin reading in 2015 you should add this to your list. Here are his top 5 blog posts from 2014.
He also noted online that he updated his German resources on his site. I’ll be definitely looking at this come closer to summer when I begin the process learning German.
With New Year’s resolutions quickly approaching, I’ve updated my German Resource Tab for anyone who hopes to (re)learn German in 2015. Best wishes to all who set their hands to the plow (just watch the German TV shows if you are faint of heart): http://germanforneutestamentler.com/resources/
