This looks like it could be a very helpful beginning text. It includes readings from both classical and biblical Greek, has very clear explanations, and even reminds us that the subjunctive and the optative "tenses" really are aspect... :D

I quite like it. I've read sections of it yesterday and today, and I'm impressed.
