1.0 out of 5 stars Useless 14 Jun 2013
By Erwin Seba - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is useless if you don't have Van Pelt's textbook on Biblical Hebrew. If want a brush-up on English grammar in preparation for Hebrew study get "Grammatical Concepts 101 Biblical Hebrew" by Gary Long. It's excellent and stands alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every Hebrew professor should make this required reading for first year Hebrew students. 9 Aug 2010
By Shaun Tabatt - Published on Amazon.com
The average person has a certain level of familiarity with the process of learning a foreign language through studies that may have occurred during either their high school, college or graduate school years. The basic drill of learning the alphabet, vocabulary, parsing verbs, etc. should still feel somewhat familiar. If you were on any kind of a ministry of theology track and your experience is anything like mine, you may have found that learning New Testament Greek was one thing, but Biblical Hebrew took things to a whole new level of difficulty. That added level of challenge is precisely why a book like English Grammar to Ace Biblical Hebrew will be a great help in getting your studies off on the right foot. This companion volume to Lamerson's English Grammar to Ace New Testament Greek (Zondervan, 2004) will introduce you to the English grammar concepts that are necessary for the study of Biblical Hebrew. While it would seem logical that graduate level or seminary students should not have a need for a refresher in English grammar, that just does not match up with what Dr. Van Pelt has seen in his Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek classes over the years. In fact, he has noticed a growing trend amongst his students where their struggle with concepts of English grammar directly impedes their ability to learn Biblical languages. That is precisely why he has written this book.

It's hard to imagine there might be more than one way to read such a small book, but Dr. Van Pelt suggests three possible ways to approach reading this

* Read the book in order, completing the exercises before beginning your work in a Hebrew grammar.
* Work through nominal material in chapters 1-7 and then work through the nominal material in a Hebrew grammar, finally completing the verbal material in chapters 8-14 in preparation for studying the Hebrew verbal system.
* Each chapter contains references to specific chapters in Basics of Biblical Hebrew (Zondervan, 2001, 2007), allowing you to work through this book in conjunction with Basics of Biblical Hebrew, topic by topic.

Van Pelt also offers some excellent study suggestions that will aid your learning of Biblical Hebrew and many other languages and topics:

1. Find a study group!
2. Study regularly!
3. Study early!
4. Exercise!
5. Sleep!

I must admit that I especially found numbers 3, 4, and 5 difficult during my college years.

With only 112 pages, this book is a quick read. On average I was able to complete each chapter and the related exercises in under thirty minutes. Van Pelt's writing style is engaging and filled with humor, making the text readable and interesting. I especially liked the exercises at the end of each chapter. These will especially be good for new students as the exercises will get them comfortable with the types of exercises they will perform as they work through most Hebrew grammars. Another important thing to note as you are working through each chapter, there is a helpful glossary of terms at back of book. This will be invaluable, especially if words like abjad, dipthong and gerund just don't ring a bell.

This book is designed with a very wide audience in mind. It will be useful as introductory material for first year Hebrew students. Second semester or
returning Second year Hebrew students who didn't do any Hebrew over the summer or who are struggling with some of the basic grammatical concepts will benefit from this text. Also, Pastors, laymen and others who are well past their college and seminary days, but want to begin rekindling their Hebrew skills will find it useful too. I highly recommend this book and give it an overall rating of 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have item... 5 Feb 2013
By Monk4Hire - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have the entire series of Basics of Biblical Hebrew by Pratico and Van Pelt.

One problem I kept running into was that they would discuss forms of grammer that I never heard of or no longer remembered what it was.

The book covers Imperative clauses, infinitives, participles and other parts of speech long forgotten by anyone but an English major.

If you are serious about learning Hebrew, this book is invaluable.
