Basics of Hebrew Discourse is a valuable tool for intermediate students working with Old Testament narratives and poetry. While most Hebrew grammars concentrate on the relationship between words and phrases within discrete clauses (micro syntax), this one-of-a-kind resource fills a needed gap by offering discourse analysis to describe relationships that exist between clauses and larger blocks of text (macro syntax).

Basics of Hebrew Discourse: A Guide to Working with Hebrew Prose and Poetry by Matthew H. Patton, Frederic Clarke Putnam, and Miles V. Van Pelt is a syntax resource for intermediate Hebrew students. This Basics book introduces students to the principles and exegetical benefits of discourse analysis (text linguistics) when applied to biblical Hebrew prose and poetry. Where standard Hebrew reference grammars have traditionally worked to describe the relationship between words and phrases within discrete clauses (micro syntax), discourse analysis works to describe those relationships that exist between clauses and texts (macro syntax).
This resource fills a needed gap for intermediate Hebrew students and gives them the tools to work with Hebrew syntax on the macro level. Professors and pastors working with Hebrew will also find this one-of-a-kind resource highly valuable.
Matthew H. Patton (PhD, Wheaton College) is the pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Vandalia, Ohio.

He has taught Hebrew grammar, discourse, and exegesis since 1984, and has published three previous books on biblical Hebrew. He and his family live in southeast Pennsylvania.
