Item description for Graded Reader of Biblical Hebrew: A Guide to Reading the Hebrew Bible by Miles V. Van Pelt & Gary D. Pratico...
Overview This graded reader introduces the second-year Hebrew student to various types of biblical Hebrew literature and contains various notations to assist him or her in the further advancement of Hebrew translation and exegesis.
Publishers Description A Graded Reader of Biblical Hebrew is the ideal next-step resource for the student who has completed a year of elementary Hebrew, or it can be used as a refresher for the pastor or scholar whose language skills have diminished due to lack of use. Immersion in the language is the best way to reinforce what you have already learned and to gain greater proficiency in using the language for exegesis and preaching. A Graded Reader of Biblical Hebrew is a structured introduction to the reading of biblical Hebrew texts. Through these readings, you will be able to review basic Hebrew grammar, become familiar with issues of intermediate grammar, and gain confidence in handling the Hebrew text. The readings chosen for inclusion, which are arranged generally in order of increasing difficulty, span the whole of the Old Testament and represent some of the most important Old Testament texts from the standpoint of biblical history, theology, and exegesis. The many notes that accompany the text include information on grammar, exegetically significant constructions, vocabulary words, idioms, bibliographic information, and more. Parsing exercises are included with each reading, and there is room for you to write your own English translation.

Good to go Feb 22, 2007
Promises to be a very helpful volume in the study of Biblical Hebrew.
Good but not quite what I expected Feb 13, 2007
I like the idea behind this book, but I had a bit different expectations. I was expecting that this would be structured around broader syntactical rules and principles (obviously not as detailed as Arnold/Choi and certainly not Waltke/O'Connor), followed by reading examples to illustrate the principles. Instead the structure of the book is quite the opposite -- there are reading passages, which are followed by explanation or discussion of each word (form, parsing, etc.) in passage. It is up to the reader to connect all the different instances and passages that illustrate this or that syntactical rule. With this understanding of the book, its structure and objective, I would say it's well done and though it's not what I thought it would be, I would still recommend it as a useful resource. The authors selected interesting passages and the explanation behind the reading is good too.
