I was drawing attention to what appears to be a good deal. I don't  
particularly recommend the traditional approach to learning Biblical  
or Attic Greek, but Mastronarde is one of the better traditional type  
textbooks for Attic Greek. Another very good one is Hansen and Quinn,  
_Greek: An Intensive Course_ (http://tinyurl.com/32vgj2). Personally  
I preferred to teach using the JACT _Reading Greek_ series (http:// 
tinyurl.com/2lfndv -- but one needs both the Reading book and the  
Grammar book).
