5.0 out of 5 stars This volume is extremely well done!, 1 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Biblical Hebrew: Step by Step Volume. 1: Vol 1 (Paperback)
The back cover of this book states that Mansoor has been teaching Hebrew for many years. It is obvious that this man has truly learned how to teach a difficult subject in that time. I had previously studied Biblical Hebrew using Kittel, Hoffer and Wright's well known text. Their work confused and confounded me at times. Their presentation of grammatical points was not systematic. While some people may learn well from their approach, others will not. Mansoor's book is there for the rest of us who have used Kittel et al, to no avail. The grammar is clear, systematic and EASY TO FOLLOW. In fact, I would say Mansoor's volume is quite enjoyable. I very much applaud what he has done for students of Hebrew with this book. My only real criticism is that the treatment of verb forms (piel, niphal etc) is far too brief. I would also recommend that students who complete Mansoor's book THEN turn to Kittel et al. I found that volume much more understandable after having used Mansoor's text. It is in Kittel's text that an adequate treatment of verb forms will be found and will be understandable after using Mansoor's
