Publisher's Description

English Grammar to Ace Biblical Hebrew enables students of biblical Hebrew to grasp the basic concepts of English grammar that are needed in order to be able to transfer these concepts to biblical Hebrew. One of the biggest problems students encounter learning biblical languages, especially Hebrew, is that they have either forgotten or simply do not know their English grammar. Concepts such as verb tense and voice, relative pronouns, antecedents, adjectival substantives, and the like, sound like familiar terms, but may seem foreign when it’s time to put them to practice. With chapters such as, “To Be or Not To Be, that is the Infinitive” and “Pronouns: Grammatical Stunt Doubles,” this book is both clever and engaging. All Hebrew students will become better translators—and ultimately better pastors and leaders—with the help of this book. Tips for studying Hebrew, a glossary, and a list of additional Hebrew resources is also provided. This book is a companion to English Grammar to Ace New Testament Greek by Samuel Lamerson.

    English Grammar to Ace Biblical Hebrew is one of two books on the market which seek to address the lack of understanding of the underlying rules of English grammar by the new Biblical Hebrew language student. The other one, Grammatical Concepts 101 for Biblical Hebrew, is reviewed elsewhere.

    This reviewer began his professional life as a teacher of modern languages in a secondary school. Although all students had received training in English grammar for several years, almost to a person they could not recall anything substantial whenever a basic grammatical concept was introduced in the target language. I know most of my peers had the same results. English grammar had to be re-taught to students who otherwise were bright students. Most were studying a foreign language as part of a college-preparatory curriculum, and were not particularly interested in the modern foreign language per se.

    Later in life, this reviewer began teaching Biblical Hebrew. These later students had a specific interest in the language that was often missing with some secondary students. They wanted to read and understand the Hebrew Bible, but these students had the same problem of recalling their prior English grammar instruction.

    English Grammar to Ace Biblical Hebrew gets right to the point of reviewing the basic concepts that will relate to the student's forthcoming study of Hebrew. Anything from English grammar that is not reflected in Hebrew grammar is avoided. The chapter on mood, tense, and aspect lays out these concepts as used in English, and, is particularly useful, even though it is fairly short.

    Similarly, most English grammar study does not stress participles to the extent that a beginning Hebrew student would need for understanding. The brief explanation on participles provides a good jumping off place for the new student.

    The book does not provide much direction in Hebrew grammar, and has no Hebrew examples that the student can refer to. For this reason, this book appears best suited for reading prior to the beginning of Hebrew class, although it could be used as a reference during the Hebrew class.

    This book is best suited for the student whose first foreign language study is in Hebrew. Students who have studied other languages should be able to transfer the concepts they learned in another language to the Hebrew class without this refresher.
