More About This Textbook

Overview

This revised edition of the best-selling Biblical Hebrew is thoroughly updated and augmented for a new generation of students. Designed for use in a two-semester course, the book’s fifty-five lessons are constructed around Biblical verses or segments and arranged in order of increasing complexity. At the successful completion of the course, students will be well equipped to tackle prose passages on their own.

The CDs present the alphabet, vowels, readings and cantillations of biblical passages, songs to assist with memorizing grammar concepts, selections from Psalms performed in a variety of musical styles, and all the vocabulary words from English to Hebrew.
