This book is for people who have a basic understanding of the biblical Hebrew language However, it is user friendly, asks the right questions and, importantly, includes the answers and some notes explaining them.
I recommend this to anyone wanting to move on to the second or third step in Biblical Hebrew.
This book is for people who have done some introductory biblical Hebrew and want to go further, or for those whose introductory Hebrew was some time ago and is a little rusty.
There are 30 shortish Hebrew texts to read, arranged in increasing order of difficulty Each text is accompanied by parsing exercises and notes on the grammatical forms found in the text.
Many of the texts included in this book are likely to be familiar to anyone with a background in reading the Bible in English, for example the burning bush Exodus , the Shema Deuteronomy , the new covenant Jeremiah and Psalm 23 I think the familiarity of the texts used is helpful and likely to keep readers of this book motivated.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to continue their Hebrew.
