Learning to Read Biblical Hebrew can guide anyone to read the Old Testament in its original language by teaching the basics of Hebrew grammar, vocabulary, and syntax. The book is user friendly in the sense that it communicates in easily-understood language and moves at a reasonable pace for students to learn through an approach that is primarily deductive. The presentation follows a systematic, carefully outlined format that offers thorough illustrations by means of biblical examples. The step-by-step approach is careful not to overwhelm the beginning student with too much information at each stage of learning Hebrew. Yet the discussion is thorough in that all basic elements of grammar are logically presented. The book assumed no previous experience with learning a language--thus it truly is a beginning grammar.
