This is not exactly thrilling reading, but the dictionary in the back is extremely helpful, and as a graded reader it can be very helpful, though I did not go as far into it as I had hoped I would (it might have been better had I done so.) If I were going to revise this, what it would be wonderful to have had would have been a graded reader that split the difference between my first German graded reader and this. Something that started me on German hymns or very very short theological passages of surpassing easiness. Bible stories written for children or something of the sort. The other thing that I really needed (and did not know that I needed as I began reading theological German) was something that would have introduced me to Fraktur font. Instead, I encountered it first in the middle of an early Ph.D. course. It would have been very useful to me if someone had told me early on that this was something that I was going to need. And if you are reading theological German, you are eventually going to have to deal with something that is in Fraktur. ( )
