A helpful textbook
4 stars By Steph, May 01 2016
Decker's intermediate Greek Reader contains passages from the NT, Septuagint, and early church fathers with less common vocabulary and commentary on difficult to translate parts. I found it helpful and learnt from it. I think the way that he references other sources is especially helpful - he gives lots of places to go to to find more information on things which come up in the passages for translation.
