Description

Clear. Understandable. Carefully organized. Basics of Biblical Hebrew Grammar by Gary D. Pratico and Miles V. Van Pelt is the standard textbook for colleges and seminaries. Since its initial publication in 2001 its integrated approach has helped more than 80,000 students learn Biblical Hebrew.

The third edition of Basics of Biblical Hebrew Grammar represents a significant updating and revision of the previous edition with the goal of providing students with the best possible tool for learning Biblical Hebrew.

Some of the keys to the effectiveness of Basics of Biblical Hebrew Grammar in helping students learn is that it:

  • Combines the best of inductive and deductive approaches
  • Uses actual examples from the Hebrew Old Testament rather than "made-up" illustrations
  • Emphasizes the structural pattern of the Hebrew language rather than rote memorization, resulting in a simple, enjoyable, and effective learning process
  • Employs colored text that highlights key features of nouns and verbs, allowing easy recognition of new forms
  • Includes appendices of verbal paradigms and diagnostics for fast reference and a complete vocabulary glossary
  • Displays larger font and text size, making reading easier

By the time students have worked their way through Basics of Biblical Hebrew Grammar they will have learned:

  • The Hebrew Alphabet
  • Vocabulary for words occurring 70 times or more in the Hebrew Bible
  • The Hebrew noun system
  • The Hebrew verbal system
