Issues with Athenaze

Hey everyone! I'm using Athenaze to learn Greek, or rather try to learn Greek, and I'm finding that I get lost at certain points. I find it jumps into new declensions without warning in the readings, and almost leaves you to sort out why it changes on your own. I don't know, I'm probably just a bad student.

so... many... OCTs...

I was at Madison's o)x' a)/riston kaphlei/wn tw=n bibli/wn today, "Paul's Books."

In gratiam luminis ...

I know that 'gratia' can be 'for the sake of' but that doesn't seem to be applicable as used in this case. 'gratiam' here is ...

I am wondering if anybody here can read Sanskrit. I have looked at many different books and everything about it seems immensely difficult; even to the extent of making Greek look easy by comparison.
