Scholars Online Textbooks for Courses for the Current School Year


The Textbook Section for Greek Textbooks

There are several hundred books listed in the textbook section. Select a sequence to review a list of the courses and textbooks for that sequence. You may browse through the entire section if you want to see all our text choices by clicking on "Textbooks", but please be aware that this may take significant time to load and you must be patient.

Text titles in the list display link directly to Amazon's page for the work, or to an alternate source if the item is not available from Amazon. On full screen devices, you can also browse sections or the entire book store in "cover" mode, which will display the textbook cover and range of prices for copies available through Amazon.

During the early part of the calendar year, the bookstore may list textbooks for courses from both the current academic year, and the upcoming summer and fall academic years. Not all textbooks will be listed until teachers approve course descriptions and select their books. Be sure that you order books for the correct enrollment year.

Textbooks for both Summer and Academic Year 2017 Courses

Courses in Greek
Greek I • [2017] Timothy Dean
  Required Greek: An Intensive Course
Hardy Hansen, Gerald M. Quinn

This is the second revised edition. Please note. Earlier editions are not going to work for us. You may choose to get instead the hardback copy of the second edition, but that's up to you.
  Optional Greek New Testament: With English Introduction including Greek/English dictionary
Kurt Aland (editor)

This is optional, but our students often ask for a recommendation for a Greek New Testament. Most students can read it reasonably easily by the end of the first year, with just the help of some vocabulary support.

Greek III • [2017] Bruce McMenomy
  Required A Greek Reader for Schools
C. E. Freeman, W. D. Lowe

This is a reprint of a much older book, but still a solid selection of readings which are both entertaining and conducive to the development of fluency. Most of the passages have been edited somewhat from their original forms (Herodotus' Ionic dialect has been systematically Atticized throughout), but the work is solid and tractable.
  Required Plato: Apology
Plato, James J. Helm (Editor)
  Optional An Intermediate Greek-English Lexicon, Founded upon the 7th ed. of Liddell and Scott's Greek-English Lexicon
H. G. Liddell, Robert Scott

This is enough of a Greek lexicon to carry the student through an undergraduate career in classics and well into graduate school. It is not required for this course, but it will always be helpful and will not quickly become obsolete. It is worth noting that there are iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch versions of the full Liddell and Scott (which retails for about $200 if you can find it on sale) for two or three dollars. If you have the necessary hardware, this is a very congenial solution to the lexicon problem.
  Optional Greek Grammar
Herbert Weir Smyth, Gordon M. Messing

Not absolutely required, but very strongly recommended. If you have funds to buy only one non-required volume for Greek, this should be it. Revised edition.
  Optional N. Marinone
All the Greek Verbs

Not required, but this volume is worth its weight in frustration: it locates verbs according to their (often wildly divergent) principal parts.

Scholars Online is currently engaged in accreditation evaluation by MSA-CESS for the 2017-2018 academic year and following years. Courses taken from Fall 2009 - Spring 2017 were fully accredited by AdvancED and NWAC. For more information on accreditation, see our Scholars Online Accreditation page.
