A Modern Grammer for biblical Hebrew is an amzazing book! I cant recommend it enough. The Author takes you step by step through the basics of biblical hebrew. The book covers everything you would encounter in your first year hebrew. It also touches on second year themes. The vocabulary lists are included. words that appear 79 or more in your hebrew bible are listed along with names of places, people etc.

The author takes you through detailed readings out of your hebrew bible and guides you along the way, especially psalm 1. Prof Garret writes in an easy to understand format and tries not to overcomplicate things. The book also includes an appendix on how to use the BHS as well as the upcoming BHQ (Hiblica Hebraica Quinta). Hebrew Grammer and syntax are studied in detail. The chapter on hebrew poetry helped me a lot.

I recommend this book for beginner/intermediate students.

The best of all is the book comes with a CD that helps with pronunciation. I am also going to buy Amos: A Handbook on the Hebrew Text (Baylor Handbook on the Hebrew Bible) (Baylor Handbook on the Hebrew Bible) by the same author.

modern grammar for biblical hebrew -- a book review

One of the nearly perpetual problems I face in teaching, and as a pastor, is finding good introductory biblical Hebrew grammars. Having taught Hebrew three times, I've used a different grammar each time. As a student, it was the old Yates-Owens grammar with which I cut my own teeth. I've used Paige Kelley's grammar, but his discussion of "rules" always uses confusing examples. And Seow's grammar is better as a reference. Then, of course, there's the quite-popular Basics of Biblical Hebrew Grammar by Pratico.

But Garrett and DeRouchie's grammar may just be the grammar I've been looking for.

A Modern Grammar for Biblical Hebrew is designed for a standard two-semester introduction. The presentation makes good use of charts and graphics to point out the parts of words. And the Hebrew font is clean and large enough for easy reading.

They take really good care to explain the basics in orthography and writing. And their treatment of vowels is nearly unparalleled in introductory texts. The Glossery is especially useful for beginning students (especially self-studies folks).

I only wish more examples were taken from the biblical text earlier in the book.

In all, though, this is probably the best grammar in the spate of recent grammars I've seen. I'm sure to use it often, in my own translation work and in classrooms.

Well formated and clear explanations in each chapter. Each chapter establishes a building block for the next chapter. Vocabulary at the end of each unit pinpoints the lesson. Recommend the workbook as a companion for this book.

I am very pleased with this presentation of Bibilcal Hebrew. I currently have a copy of Weingreen's Hebrew Grammer and think that Garrett's text compliments it very nicely.

There are lots of words that are NOT used from previous chapters at all in the translation practice exercises. It seems like the person who wrote the translation practice sentences up was stuck on a few names and few verbs.

There should be two translation practice sections: (1) straightforward translation that is not tricky and really forces you to work more quickly so you can practice all the new words combined with previous words, and (2) trickier translation that requires more thought so that you can think through the "I've never seen the definite article on the pluralized version of a feminine noun that takes a masculine plural ending and changes vowels in between".

At best, it's a poor attempt to provide help to the students. At worst, it was laziness in not doing a proper job.
