This is a companion volume to Greek for the Rest of Us by William D. Mounce. This book is a guide for English-only readers to understand the language of the Old Testament just enough to work with the Old Testament in more detail and to understand the scholarly literature on the Hebrew Bible. Its specific aims are to aid students to learn (1) why translations differ, (2) how to do Hebrew word studies, (3) what the basics of Hebrew exegesis are, and (4) how to read more advanced Old Testament commentaries with greater understanding. Herbrew for the Rest of Us is set up in a workbook format.
Lee M. Fields is a trained Hebrew scholar with a PhD from Hebrew Union College. He is Professor of Bible and Theology at Mid-Atlantic Christian University (formerly Roanoke Bible College), in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.
learner5 Stars Out Of 5Like the workbook presentation and exercisesOctober 7, 2011learnerI am taking a class - "Intro to Biblical Hebrew" and this is our text. I knew nothing about the language. We are having class 4 tomorrow and I am amazed at how much I have already "soaked up" through use of this text (and my instructor).
Joan4 Stars Out Of 5February 16, 2009JoanI loved Bill Mounce's "Greek for the Rest of Us". So, I had high hopes that "Hebrew for the Rest of Us" would be the equivalent. It is, however, it lacks one of the strengths that GRU had which is an accompanying cd rom of lectures. I'm hoping this will be offered in a future edition. All in all, "Hebrew for the Rest of Us" is invaluable because it is a simpler approach to understanding Biblical Hebrew than any other text I have found.
