Daniel Wallace is probably best known for his intermediate grammar of Koine Greek, Greek Grammar beyond the Basics. I know him because I was his intern for a year when I was a master’s student at Dallas Theological Seminary. He also supervised my master’s thesis and inspired the thesis of my book. Needless to say, I and many others have benefitted greatly from his scholarship.
Dr. Wallace is working on a project now that may be his most important yet. He is travelling the world for the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (CSNTM) to make digital photographs of Greek New Testament manuscripts. The aim of the photographs is to preserve the documents, to enable duplication without deterioration, and to make them accessible to other scholars doing textual research.
If none of that makes sense to you, the Dallas Morning News ran a story on Saturday that explains his work in layman’s terms: “Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts working to preserve ancient pieces” by Deborah Fleck (Dallas Morning News).
