I thought that Everyman's Greek glossed over a lot of important things, but
was quite approachable.

I don't know which book you mean. There is one on First John that has
received interesting reviews:

This is by S.M.Baugh, who seems to have wonderful things to say when he
posts here, and has written some extremely interesting articles. Based on
other things he has written, I get the impression he really knows how to
teach. Alas, I haven't actually looked at this book...

See for my list of resources for beginners.

Quite usable, and there are a bunch of related works such as a graded
reader and a workbook. This is the most used grammar in evangelical
seminaries. Not everything he says is true, and this is particularly
problematic with the introductions to the chapters, which sometimes
strongly imply that the Greek carries meanings that I don't personally see
in those passages.

Don't know this one.

If you are an abstract thinker, A.K.M. Adam's grammar gives clear, concise,
and true explanations of what the various grammatical forms mean. I might
combine that with a text that gives more concrete explanations, or use it
as a corrective to Mounce. It's always a good idea to get a second opinion

Sorry, I don't know what to recommend here.
