Item description for Learn to Read Biblical Hebrew: A Guide To Learning The Hebrew Alphabet, Vocabulary And Sentence Structure Of The Hebrew Bible by Jeff A. Benner...

Anyone interested in learning to read the Hebrew Bible in its original language will find within the pages of this book all the resources needed to begin this wonderful journey. The book is laid out in four parts. The first part teaches the Hebrew alphabet through a series of lessons. The second part teaches word and sentence structure of the Hebrew language by breaking down each Hebrew word in Genesis chapter one, verses one through five. The Hebrew text of Genesis chapter one is provided for reading and comprehension practices in part three. The fourth part of the book contains charts and dictionaries of prefixes, suffixes, words and roots of the Hebrew language to assist the reader with vocabulary definitions and comprehension. Within a short amount of time the Hebrew student will soon be reading the Bible through the eyes of the author rather than the opinions of a translator.

Reviews - What do customers think about Learn to Read Biblical Hebrew: A Guide To Learning The Hebrew Alphabet, Vocabulary And Sentence Structure Of The Hebrew Bible?

Wonderful Service!  Aug 29, 2008
This book is so wonderful. It is very informative on the Hebrew language. You also learn how to pronounce the letters and vowels in Hebrew. You can even listen to the pronunciations on the website provided in the book. You get an inside look at Hebrew, from an author who truly loves the language. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in learning how to read the Tanakh (Old Testament) in it's original language and not someone else's version (KJV, NIV, NASB, etc....) This is the first step in a journey to reaching a fuller biblical truth in your life. Learning Biblical Hebrew is like seeing the ocean for the very first time. There is so much beauty there to discover. Enjoy the adventure! It is life changing!
not for a beginner  Jul 3, 2008
the lessons were good up until maybe lesson 5. after that it was confusing, and several of the references to a numbered example were misnumbered. it doesn't appear that this book was proofed very well. definitely disappointing, in my humble opinion.
Great start in learning Biblical Hebrew  Feb 15, 2008
I bought this book as a homeschooler, to help my son learn Hebrew as a Biblical language. It is a great first learning tool to learning Hebrew.
Pleasant but beware of errors  Jan 9, 2008
I am using this book as part of my Biblical Hebrew lessons but find that the author has been careless both in his English and Hebrew. The book needs a proofreader as there are missing vowels, misplaced vowels, a discussion of an alphabet letter which depicts the wrong letter and spelling mistakes in the English. The book is generally helpful, but it is unacceptable to have so many errors in a textbook. As a professor of Latin and Greek I can attest to the fact that some of the explanations of grammatical concepts are not correct. The transliteration also has some mistakes and should be used with caution.
Strong book for familiarizing yourself with the Hebrew Alphabet  Oct 27, 2006
This book is extremely helpful in getting to know the Hebrew alphabet and pronunciation. The phonetic exercises are very good, and I find myself being reminded of Hebrew words just from hearing similar sounds.

The downside is that this book is in no way extensive. Unless you would really enjoy reading the dictionary in the back, there are only about 4-7 examples to help build vocabulary in each chapter, along with the entire chapter of Genesis 1:1.

Learning Hebrew is for the patient. I was hoping for vocabulary building exercises similar to those when I learned the Romance Languages: I am running. I ran. You are running. I sent a letter, etc. I would rather have those simple sentences and THEN approach Genesis, rather than building my vocabulary straight from its verses. One can't be expected to learn Italian by diving straight into Dante, but that's analogous to what this book does.
