Editorial Reviews

Frederick H...... Greenspahn
The author has expended a great deal of effort to give students direct contact with the Bible and standard reference works.Actual biblical texts, assigned directly out of the Bible rather than being presented in the text, are used as reading drills....Until the seminary instructors, for whom this book is explicitly intended, replace the model of the graduate schools where they were trained with the methods of standard introductory language instruction, the problem laid out in the now-replaced introduction to this book’s first edition is not likely to abate.

    Excellent for review, poor for introduction

    Seow's introductions to noun morphology, the article, prepositions and pronouns are good. However, I found Seow's verb introductions too steep for me, a student who had no previous exposure to Hebrew or any other Semitic language. Seow does not drill the student enough toward confidence in reading whole sentences and extended passages. Seow provides excellent excurses about the BDB lexicon, reading markers and pausal forms, nomenclature for verbal patterns and root types, reference grammars, poetic Hebrew, and orientation to the Hebrew Bible. I do recommend Seow's book as a review text. Because of the steep verb introductions, I do not recommend it as the main text for students who have no previous familiarity with Hebrew or any other Semitic language.
