I'm off to the bookstore today, I plan on picking up some books for standardized test prep, Arabic, and Koine Greek. I've always told myself that if I could learn a third language it would be Koine Greek, so I could read the Scriptures, the Fathers, and (many of) the hymns of the Church in their original language. Any ideas on what books I should get to get myself started?
EDIT: On my Arabic thread Cyrillic gave me the following suggestions:
The Fathers and the Scriptures are a lot easier than the classical works. The best thing you could do is buy a Greek-English dictionary (preferably Liddle-Scott) and learn declensions. Doulos, doulou, douloi, etc. You can always check for words in the dictionary, grammar, and specifically declensions, are very important.
Is there any more advice you guys could give me?
