Publisher's Description

Hendrickson's The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible combines under one cover the complete text of the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament. Ideal for pastors, students, scholars, and anyone else who has studied both Greek and Hebrew, this is an excellent volume for those who want a complete original-language Bible in an attractive package and at an affordable price.



The Hebrew text is a beautifully typeset version of the Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia, edited by Aron Dotan.

Features:

- Qere forms are clearly set off in the margin (with corresponding unpointed Kethiv forms in the main text).

- The text is unencumbered by a critical apparatus, allowing for ease of reading.



The Greek New Testament is a recent typesetting of the edition produced by B. F. Westcott and F. J. A. Hort.

Features:

- Pericopes are labeled in English, and in the Gospels these labels are accompanied, where appropriate, by the verse references of their synoptic parallels.

- Quotations and allusions to the Old Testament are indicated in the Greek text in bold, with references at the bottom of the page.

- A straightforward, unobtrusive apparatus is found at the bottom of the page that presents the differences in wording between the Westcott-Hort edition and the 27th edition of Nestle-Aland's Novum Testamentum Graece, as well as the Byzantine text edition prepared by Maurice Robinson and William Pierpont.

    An accessible and affordable tool that will enhance reading original languages

    As pastor-theologians, it is imperative for those in ministrywhether academic or pastoralto have access to the original languages of Scripture. Knowledge of the Greek and Hebrew illuminates one's understanding of how God has revealed himself and how Christians live in light of this revelation. However, in the realm of print Bibles, there are very few options that are accessible. Some are clunky and ponderous, taking multiple volumes; others are smaller yet expensive; others still separate the Old and New Testaments, leaving a discontent among the biblical languages. This is the problem that the editors of The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible (Hendrickson, 2017) seek to resolve. In a compact, full volume, both the Hebrew Old Testament and the Greek New Testament are provided for reading the original languages.

    This is neither an interlinear Bible nor a parallel Bible; there is very little annotation in this work with the exception of minor references and variant spellings. The Hebrew text is from the Biblia Hebraica Leningradensis (BHL), and the Greek text is from the Novum Testamentum Graece, ensuring a reliable and accurate reading. One interesting feature that I enjoyed in this Bible is that quotations and references to the Old Testament are highlighted in the Greek New Testament, showing the progression of revelation and the connections between the two testaments.

    At first look, this is a very heavy Bible. It is a compact sizeonly about 6x8but it is incredibly thick, almost 3 in width, and, consequently, is very heavy. Nevertheless, this is comparable to most language Bibles and is albeit more portable than other large tomes. The reading experience is, overall, fantastic. The text is well-set and large enough to read easily. In Hebrew, the Masoretic vowels are able to be identified without a magnifying glass. There are wide margins and pages that do not bleed through, and the book names are provided in both English and Hebrew/Greek on alternating pages. Each testament contains many appendices outlining textual issues in the manuscripts.

    As a reader of primarily the Hebrew Old Testament, I will find great value and utility in this Bible, using it for study or devotional methods, especially when I desire a reading experience that is free of distractions. When paired with a lexicon or Bible software, ones reading of the original languages is unlocked.

    This text is ideal for pastors, students, and scholars with a working knowledge of the biblical languages. Since the forms are neither parsed, translated, nor assigned a concordance number, I would not recommend this for those who have not taken courses in Greek or Hebrew. Offered in hardcover and imitation leather styles, The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible will make an excellent addition to any biblical scholars library. And, at an affordable price, reading the original texts is more accessible than ever.

    (My thanks is given to Hendrickson for providing a complimentary review copy in exchange for an honest review.)

    Its not difficult to find a Hebrew Bible and Greek New Testament combined under one cover. Biblia Sacra has been a standard for nearly two decades and A Readers Hebrew and Greek by A. Philip Brown II, Bryan W. Smith, Richard J. Goodrich, and Albert L. Lukaszewski has been offered by Zondervan for roughly 8 years. That said, earlier this year when I found out that Hendrickson would be publishing The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible, the anticipation began to develop almost immediately.

    There are a number of reasons Hendricksons The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible is a standout from the crowd. First, and probably foremost, the quality of The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible is superior even to some of the most premium original language Bibles. The printed text is sharp and well-defined with minimal bleed on the opaque off-white paper. This is especially unique at under $40 for the hardcover edition and $60 for the imitation leather edition. A Readers Hebrew and Greek is over twice that price and half as nice. Second, the choice to use the Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia (BHL) edited by Aron Dotan and the 1881 edition of the Greek New Testament edited by B. F. Westcott and F. J. A. Hort (WH) is both functional and unique in the marketplace. Where most options available tend to use the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) and either the 27th or 28th edition of the Nestle-Aland Greek New Testament (NA), here BHL and WH offer pastors and students a reliable text that is both readable and versatile. Third, while other options may prefer the textual basis of the BHS and NA, both BHL and WH offer textual analysis where differences are present. WH includes a critical apparatus at the bottom of the page indicating when it differed from NA27 and the Byzantine text by Robinson and Pierpont. Unfortunately, BHL does not include a critical apparatus at the bottom of the page, but Dotan did include an appendix with manuscript variants. Lastly, it is worth mentioning a few stylistic features in WH, such as periscopes labeled in English, verse references to synoptic parallels, and Old Testament quotations and allusions indicated by bolded Greek text with reference at the bottom of the page. These features expand the functionality of the Greek New Testament beyond simply text on page, and allow the pastor or student room both to read and study.

    The only foreseeable shortcoming of Hendricksons The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible is a lack of attention to consistency with regards to the functionality of BHL. Apart from Qere forms in the margins and the corresponding unpointed Kethiv forms in the main text, there is little effort to offer the reader anything other than a reading experience. There isnt anything wrong with this approach. But, as readers turn to the New Testament, the bells and whistles found in WHs critical apparatus and stylistic features are evident. It seems that the Hebrew Bible and Greek New Testament were edited separately before being bound together, and a consistency check was lacking. As mentioned above, Dotan does include a number of appendixes in BHL with helpful material. But, it would have been nice to have at the bottom of the page like WH.

    Hendricksons The Complete Hebrew-Greek Bible is a phenomenal new resource at a very attractive price. The quality far exceeds the sticker-price! Both the Hebrew and Greek text are crisp and readable, and the binding is well-constructed. It opens flat with no issues and should last a very long time. Apart from the shortcoming mentioned above, I can think of no reason that pastors and students shouldnt jump at the opportunity to own this volume. Its easily the best option on the market for the price, and comes highly recommended!
