The Plan: Possible Revision
In a previous post I mentioned that I was very interested in Learn New Testament Greek by John Dobson. Well I didn’t get much feedback on the book probably because there are many other grammars that are in common use. As I am half way through Mounce’s Greek for the Rest of Us now, I am looking at purchasing the next wave of Greek grammars. So I did a Google search and came across a site that recommended doing the very thing I’ve been attempting to do already. Namely to start off slowly with the book I’m using now, then use Dobson’s inductive approach to ease myself in a bit more before starting on a grammar proper. So, head to the link below and give it a read through as I’m curious to hear what the rest of you think of their approach. Unless there’s a very compelling reason not to, I’m now officially planning on using Dobson’s book, followed closely by Mounce’s BBGG (and workbook) as demonstrated in the following link:
Towards the end of their post they mention a book titled Athenaze: An Introduction to Ancient Greek which looks quite interesting when you consider what they recommend. Has anyone ever used it? Incidentally, I’m also going to pick up a copy of The Complete Vocabulary Guide to the Greek New Testament by Warren Trenchard as it looks quite good.
