My explanation of why I use GREEK TO ME is in the archives; my enthusiasm
has not waned over the almost 15 years of using it, nor have I seen
anything else that does what GTM does as well as it does it.

As to the availability of GTM, its true that Harper has dropped the book,
but Lyle Story (Dean at Regent Univ; <lylesto at>) is redoing,
cleaning up, and planning on releasing his own version of the text book
soon.  He can also probably point you to copies still left.
