Learning original languages is requisite for serious study of the Bible. Bartelt's textbook provides a basic understanding of Hebrew grammar---vocabulary, morphology, syntax, and irregularities. Translation and reading exercises are drawn directly from Scripture. Steinmann's introductory resource offers reading proficiency in biblical Aramaic. Includes a full set of paradigm charts, a glossary, and an index. 378 pages, hardcover from Concordia.
This single volume introductory approach to the Hebrew and Aramaic languages is a welcome classroom addition. Each language is covered independently, following a similar format that includes morphology, syntax, and vocabulary. Each unit in the Hebrew and Aramaic sections also features translation and reading exercises. Appendices address noun formation and pronominal suffixes, verb paradigms (regular and irregular), glossaries, and indices. A workbook with additional exercises for both languages will be available late in 2004.
