Bill Mounce's _Graded Reader of Biblical Greek_ takes an inductive approach
to intermediate Greek. The reader appeared just recently, so I haven't had
the opportunity to use it, but it sounds like it might be something you could
use. In the course of translating (more than?) 20 biblical passages, LXX and
NT, including one extracanonical source, (this is all from memory -- I
reviewed a copy a couple of weeks ago) it introduces grammatical aspects that
are discussed in an intermediate course. In fact, I recollect that it is
intended to be used as an intermediate text. It would also be an excellent
supplement to an additional text.
