This new edition of the classic introductory Hebrew grammar has been completely revised to meet the needs of today’s students. The new grammar presupposes no previous education in the classics nor in grammar in general, but explains all the terms and principles briefly and straightforwardly as it progresses. It is designed to bring any student as soon as possible to an ability to read the Hebrew Bible. Exercises are progressively based on passages from the Hebrew Bible itself. Carefully tested by teachers and students, the new grammar has been found extremely effective and successful, either in the classroom or through home study. The whole grammar can be worked through and mastered in one term or semester.
This is the grammar of Biblical Hebrew for which students – and their teachers – have been waiting for a long time: sufficiently traditional in its use of recognized conventions, but thoroughly up-to-date in style and presentation… it should be entirely accessible to the beginner and a congenial companion for the advanced leaner.
—Professor William Johnstone, University of Aberdeen
The venerable history of this grammar, now in its 27th edition, attests to its usefulness. With considerable modifications, the reviser has tailored it to the pedagogical preferences of the current generation of Hebrew students.
