Item description for Hebrew for the Rest of Us: Using Hebrew Tools Without Mastering Biblical Hebrew by Lee M. Fields...

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 secondary literature on the Bible that uses Hebrew directly.

Publishers Description
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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hebrew For The Rest Of Us?

Poorly edited  Mar 30, 2010
The editing in this book is the worst that I've ever seen in an academic book. The charts are confusing and generally not helpful. Finally, for some strange reason, the author insisted on abbreviated commonly used words. The word "pronoun", for instance, would repeatedly be abbreviated to "prn". Why? It made it difficult to read and to understand.

All in all, probably the worst academic book that I've ever used. Don't bother.

This text will take you out of your comfort zone and into a realm of pure learning. You will feel like a third grader again learning basic language skill and wishing all the while you had a stronger vocxabulary to go along with your new "decoding" skills. It will encourage you to read to build facility in your new language.
A good work with a misleading title  Mar 14, 2009
Lee Field's, "Hebrew for the Rest of Us" has been published as the Hebrew language equivalent to Bill Mounce's, "Greek for the Rest of Us"; however, the similarity of titles aside, the two works could hardly be more different! Whilst "HRU" is certainly well written I doubt that it would meet the needs of the intended audience, non-Hebrew trained Christian readers. It is simply too demanding. Positively, the text is replete with test questions, which is surely a 'good' thing. Negatively, it lacks any sort of answer key, which for a work of this sort must be a 'bad' thing.

As someone who tutors tertiary-level students in the biblical languages, I believe "HRU" would best serve the needs of those who are engaged in instructor-led learning at a theological college/seminary, or as a refresher text for those who had previously studied the language. Perhaps the ideal niche for the work would be a course along the lines of "introduction to Hebrew". But the interested 'layman' looking for a 'self-directed learner-friendly' text should probably look elsewhere (say, Kittel et al, "Biblical Hebrew: a Text and Workbook").
Uncertain  Feb 1, 2009
I sent in a few reviews of this prior to publication. Unfortunately, it isn't possible to see any of the text; one of the problems was inaccuracy with the alphabet.
Has this been corrected?
