Achieving the right balance of amount of information, style of presentation, and depth of instruction in first-year grammars is no easy task. But Mark Futato has produced a grammar that, after years of testing in a number of institutions, will please many, with its concise, clear, and well-thought-out presentation of Biblical Hebrew.
Because the teaching of biblical languages is in decline in many seminaries and universities, Futato takes pains to measure the amount of information presented in each chapter in a way that makes the quantity digestible, without sacrificing information that is important to retain. The book includes exercises that are drawn largely from the Hebrew Bible itself.
This is the first printing of the book.
In the second printing, a number of typographical corrections have been made, other minor improvements have been implemented, and an index of topics has been added. The corrections list and index can be accessed above by clicking "More Information (PDF)"and "Contents (PDF)," respectively.
