The Center for New Testament Restoration (CNTR) was founded by Alan Bunning in 2013 to address an ongoing need to provide Christians with greater access to the Greek New Testament. The CNTR has absorbed the work of the Scientific Greek New Testament Interlinear project which was previously founded by Alan Bunning in 2003. A full description of the CNTR project can be found in the Project Description located under the Resources tab.
Alan Bunning received his education in New Testament Greek from the Kensington Theological Academy under the tutelage of Dr. David R. Dilling, ThD, PhD. Alan has authored several Christian books including his latest release, “Rationality” as well as his popular book, “The Church”. Alan’s primary background, however, is in computer science and was an Assistant Professor of Computer Information Systems at Ivy Tech Community College for 14 years and is now a Continuing Lecturer for the Computer Science Department at Purdue University.
