Matt Colvin, who is a classicist and one of those post-recon types, has written a very good article about the value of Classical languages and literatures. Another good piece is made available by Ruben Alvarado (my hero LOL). Both of these pieces are taking issue with the sort of Hebrew-worship common in certain reformed circles; for a good presentation of that side, see Rodney Kirby's thesis.
All of this actually reminds me of what Christopher Plummer's character tells Kirk's crew in Star Trek VI: "You haven't experienced Shakespeare until you've read him in the original Klingon." LOL.
