Abstract:

Through his teaching experiences, John Dobson developed a method that enables students to read and understand passages of the Hebrew Bible from an early stage. Students from around the world have acknowledged the effectiveness of his method. Learn Biblical Hebrew provides the basics of a standard grammar but also includes insights into Hebrew narrative and poetry not usually found in introductory textbooks. The second edition has been updated and revised and includes an audio CD-ROM. In addition to the lessons, the book includes a glossary of grammatical terms, a short reference grammar, and helpful indexes. It is useful in classroom settings and as a self-study guide. - Publisher.
