3.0 out of 5 stars Learning Biblical Hebrew made easy, 5 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Basics of Biblical Hebrew Grammar (Hardcover)
When having to deal with the grammar of any language there is a lot to learn before you can progress to understanding sufficient before you can start to translate even at a basic level. This book helps you to carry out the task in a smooth, logical stepwise manner as it explains the rules required to understanding in a clear manner. One of the greatest problems when learning another language if all you know is English is that there is a great need to understand, even on a superficial level, specific grammatical rules and this book clearly and simply explains them illustrating with relevant examples.

The one negative comment I can make is that at the end of each chapter there is a monograph on specific topics such as particular commentaries on specific phrases or, more importantly, articles on specific biblical translators/commentators all who are Protestants and the tone of these may be construed as offensive, especially if one is a Catholic.

Presumably the tone might also be construed as offensive if one is Jewish?
