Praise for the FIRST EDITION "The authors provide thorough and lucid explanations of the grammar, and maintain a good balance between deductive and inductive approaches. . . . Fun to use. Moreover, one could hardly better spend two semesters learning biblical Hebrew than with this text."--Edwin C. Hostetter, Critical Review of Books in Religion "I have found at last what I have long sought--a textbook for beginning Hebrew. Biblical Hebrew combines two features I consider essential for a text in a biblical language, and yet have never seen together in a single book. . . . I suspect that a whole generation of pastors and young Hebraists will soon be parsing the text with terms like 'dot vowel, ' 'prefix form, ' and 'feminine period.'"--Duane A. Garrett, Criswell Theological Review "The writing style is informal, practical, and 'user friendly'. . . . I would urge teachers of Hebrew to seriously consider this text for their classes."--Wayne T. Pitard, Bulletin of Higher Hebrew Education "This is a meticulously thought out textbook that makes great demands upon students; but the end result should be an unusually strong introductory knowledge of biblical Hebrew."--Newsletter of the Association for the Development of Religious Information Services (ADRIS Newsletter)
