Beginning Biblical Hebrew: A Grammar and Illustrated Reader By John Cook & Robert D Holmstedt
Doubling as an deductive and inductive grammar, Beginning Biblical Hebrew combines the best components of modern grammar on classical Hebrew.
Each of its forty-five lessons has a succinct but crystal clear description of its respective grammatical concept, demonstrates how it works in the language, and provides vocabulary terms as well as exercises.
Tables, charts, and other helpful tools are interspersed throughout the text. Reading material and accompanying translation exercises are located in the back of the book.
Unique in style-comics in Hebrew-these provide a fun, interesting but still challenging way for students to engage the language. Furthermore, arguably the strongest part of this text is its expansive glossaries. Five glossaries in all provide detailed and easy-to-locate information that students will need in almost every lesson they encounter. The glossaries are a critical supplement to chapter lessons which students can draw throughout their first year and in the future.
