This new edition of the bestselling classical Greek textbook combines a traditionally rigorous introduction to Ancient Greek with an encouraging, pleasant, and accessible presentation for today’s modern students. From Alpha to Omega inspires students of Ancient Greek by structuring lessons around manageable selections of actual Ancient Greek writings, beginning with Aesop’s most amusing and curious fables. By the second half of the book, students are able to take on instructive passages from The New Testament, Demosthenes, Xenophon, Thucydides, Lysias, Arrian, Aristotle, and Plato. The readings demonstrate new vocabulary and syntax learned in the lesson, allowing students to develop the chapter’s lesson through actual Ancient Greek passages. This textbook also includes a comprehensive glossary of words from the lessons and readings in both Greek-to-English and English-to-Greek format for easy reference.
