Hi, Barbara,

Another San Franciscan, I see.  I live near Civic Center.

How did you become familiar with the _Cambridge Latin Course_, if I may ask?
I love it.  I think it is an incredibly well-designed set of textbooks.

I only wish that scholars and teachers interested in helping laymen read the
NT could get together and form a committee to produce a set of textbooks
similar to the design of the CLC.  The narrative could be about someone who
witnesses the fall of the Second Temple, perhaps a Hellenistic Jew who later
converts to Christianity.  That could produce a very exciting narrative.

Any of you out there interested?
