I have just learned of the publication of a new basic resource that I think will be of interest to many B-Greekers:
Synopsis of the Pauline Letters in Greek and English, edited by James P. Ware, incorporating the thirteen Pauline letters and passages of the Acts of the Apostles pertaining to Paul from the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece and the New Revised Standard Version, arranged topically, with a critical apparatus (Baker Academic, 2010)
The “package” will look familiar to those who know The Apostolic Fathers: Greek Texts and English Translation, 3rd ed., edited by Michael W. Holmes, but because the point of the Synopsis is to enable comparative reading of related passages, it has larger pages and a different layout.

I haven't seen the book myself, but the editor, James Ware, is known to me from an unforgettable early-morning summer session in which he and I worked through the Latin text of the entire De Rerum Natura of Lucretius, while reading alongside of that the extant testimonia and surviving letters of Epicurus. That was one of the brightest of many fine memories of my years at Washington University.
