I'm wanting to start seriously learning the Greek language.  I know the alphabet and can pronounce most words pretty well by reading them.  I would like some advise on what you guys think is the best grammar for a new student.  Thanks,

Doug

I should have mentioned that I have a $50 limiit.  Someone gave me a gift card and I can't think of a better way to use it.

What's your background in learning foreign languages?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I've read most of Mounce's "Basics of Biblical Greek."  I was starting college classes about the same time I should have been getting serious about progressing in that book.  I've used logos to learn most of what I know.  Again, I can pronounce most words by sight (slightly slow but can do it).  I love the syntax graphs and use LN a lot to study the meanings of words in their context.  I have Scholar's Silver and a few other books that I've purchased.

Right now, my Wednesday night Bible class is working through "How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth" but I would like to maybe offer an introductory Greek class where we can all learn together when we finish that book.  So, I'm looking for suggestions.

Mounce is the most widely used beginning Greek Grammar. Once you've mastered its contents I would move on to Wallace's Intermediate Grammar. http://www.logos.com/products/details/1517

Mounce is the best for self study since you can get a workbook, answer key and the lectures (now available in video format) to go along with the text. It worked for me anyways.
