I had been looking for Hebrew to English Interlinear Bible for my husband for some time. I happened to come across this one and decided to get it for my sons to give him on Fathers Day. So glad I did. He loves it! Very well laid out, easy to follow Fantastic find.
I have been looking for a while for an interlinear Bible and when I came across this one I felt I had found what I was looking for. Crossway did a great job with this one. The size of the Hebrew font is great. It's not to small and makes for easy reading for those who know OR are studying Hebrew.
This is a MUST have for anyone that is studying Hebrew. For me the only complaint I would have is the price. It's a hard back book and most hardback Bibles will run around $30-$40. With that being said, Crossway did a great job in translation. I normally use the NASB and was hoping that someone would do an interlinear with that translation, but after looking at the sample pages that ChristianBook.com provides I decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did. They do a fantastic job of explaining how their Bible works. I think my FAVORITE part of this Bible is that they translate God's name where ever it appears in the scripture instead of using LORD. I can't THANK YOU enough for that Crossway!!
I would recommend this Bible to my friends and family, also to those that are learning Hebrew.
I am so pleased not only with my purchase but the AMAZING customer service that I ALWAYS receive from Christianbook.com Their website is SUPER easy to navigate making shopping and ordering easy! Thank You!!
The Hebrew-English Interlinear ESV - I am so glad to finally own this edition. As a pastor, I have previously used the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (which is the same source document for English translations of the Bible) but the down-side of it is_ I can't read Hebrew.
I own it because I figured, "One day I will sit down and learn to read Biblical Hebrew." But the reality is, I can't even find the time to exercise, go for walks, play longer with my kid or eat healthy so when I am I going to find the time to learn to read Hebrew?
This is why I am so glad the editors at Crossway have released this volume. First off, the ESV translation is my favorite English version of the Bible. So right away, this book immediately becomes a valuable resource in my library.
Inside the book on each page the Hebrew text is laid out word-by-word above an English translation showing the "basic meaning" and study of each word. And as an extra bonus, the ESV text is presented separately in the out-most column.
The volume comes as a hardback and has an extra wide cover (.625" x 9.25") to allow for the extra text. This book is as large as a standard FULL Bible (over 2,000 pages), but remember this is just the Hebrew portion, so you are only getting the Old Testament.
Again, this is a valuable tool for any pastor, scholar, or teacher. Highly recommended!
Thank you to Crossway for this preview copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
