“Goes well beyond a presentation of the mechanics, teaching the student how to engage in exegetical and critical study of the Hebrew Bible. In this respect, [it] is a generous contribution to the study of Hebrew grammar and will likely be adopted widely for classroom usage.”–Ralph K. Hawkins, Catholic Biblical Quarterly
This first-year grammar has grown out of the author’s experience in teaching Hebrew to seminary students for over thirty years. Through those many years of classroom use, Dr. Ross has developed and refined his explanations, exercises, and examples to provide students with an effective introduction to Biblical Hebrew.
In addition to traditional deductive methods and exercises, Introducing Biblical Hebrew includes inductive sections that provide practical translation experience as the student works through passages from the Book of Genesis. In addition, there are well-paced vocabulary and grammar exercises and practical guides to the more technical features of the Hebrew Bible.
First year Hebrew students in Bible college, seminary, Christian college, or a university setting will find Introducing Biblical Hebrew to be one of the most useful and balanced textbooks available.
