5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for intermediate biblical Hebrew, 16 Oct 2007

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Graded Reader of Biblical Hebrew: A Guide to Reading the Hebrew Bible (Paperback)
This book is for people who have done some introductory biblical Hebrew and want to go further, or for those whose introductory Hebrew was some time ago and is a little rusty.

There are 30 shortish Hebrew texts to read, arranged in increasing order of difficulty. Each text is accompanied by parsing exercises and notes on the grammatical forms found in the text.

Many of the texts included in this book are likely to be familiar to anyone with a background in reading the Bible in English, for example the burning bush (Exodus), the Shema (Deuteronomy), the new covenant (Jeremiah) and Psalm 23. I think the familiarity of the texts used is helpful and likely to keep readers of this book motivated.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to continue their Hebrew.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Hebrew text book yet, 27 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Graded Reader of Biblical Hebrew: A Guide to Reading the Hebrew Bible (Paperback)
This book is for people who have a basic understanding of the biblical Hebrew language. However, it is user friendly, asks the right questions and, importantly, includes the answers and some notes explaining them.

I recommend this to anyone wanting to move on to the second or third step in Biblical Hebrew.

It is without any doubt beneficial for those who wish to advance there degrees further by reading ancient languages specifically when it is to compliment Theological degrees. After all the hard work is done you can advance further with your studies during the summer months to keep you on track.
