Format: Hardcover
This text is the one I have on my desk for reading and reference. I like the style of the print, it is clear and easy to read. It should be said here that the author's intent is to provide a text "...suitable for Jewish ritual use as well" as providing an accurate Bible. This "intent" colors the text somewhat as He was willing to be "occasionally obliged to deviate from it, ( the Leningrad Codex ), for the sake of customs and conventions that have become rooted since the time the manuscript was written." This should not worry the reader, however. It is appearent that Aron Dotan has given us the best usable Bible in the Ben Asher tradition we have to date, and has challenged those of the BHQ committee to surpass his edition, (p.X). He is also willing to say that there are limitations to his text and as his forward indicates, he has given us his best effort. I would give this a 5 star rating.

Format: Hardcover
Biblia Hebraica Leningradensia (BHL) is simply the most beautiful, elegant Hebrew Bible available. It is intended to reproduce the text of the Leningrad manuscript in a readable, accessible form and that is what the editors accomplished. BHL is not intended to replace BHS which has the textual apparatus and Masoretic notes. Rather, BHL simply has the text rendered cleanly and clearly.

There are a few interesting qualities of the vowel points and cantillations. For one example, the qamets is rendered as a dot below a horizontal line. The editor notes that is how the qamets appears in the manuscript, and it is also how it was printed in Biblia Hebraica Kittel. The atnah and some other te'amim have slightly different shapes but overall the effect is elegant.

The ketiv and qere follow the entirely logical method of printing the qere in the margin, pointed, and the ketiv in the text, unpointed. While this is a variation from the manuscript, it makes things easier for the reader.

Chapter and verse numbers are in the margin, using Arabic numerals. They are small enough to be unobtrusive but large enough to be easy to find. (Note the chapters and verses follow the Hebrew Bible, not the English Bible!)

The paper is a beautiful cream color, thick enough that there is hardly any ghosting. A big improvement over the thin bible paper used for some Bibles!

Everything about this Bible is intended for reading. What's not to like?

And did I mention it's beautiful?

A new student of Biblical Hebrew should get the Reader's Hebrew Bible. A scholar doing careful exegesis or textual criticism should get BHS. Someone who wants to spend some quality time reading the Hebrew Bible should get this one.

Well, I don't read Hebrew so well YET. My teacher selected this text because the font is legible and accurate for beginner readers. The vowels are clear and legible, and the verbiage apparently makes this a fairly authoritative text, too. The book isn't very flashy, but do you really need all that in your Hebrew Bible?

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The greatest let-down of this tome, is not the notes which are quite well done and a great edition to students research libraries, it is the fact that they admittedly use alternate versions of words (other than in the actual text of L. and listed in an index.) I see why they called it Leningradensia and not Leningradensis... it is very different from that tome, because it is not the same text. However it now adds another text for comparison in my research, so there is that.
