2.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant but beware of errors, January 9, 2008
This review is from: Learn to Read Biblical Hebrew: A Guide To Learning The Hebrew Alphabet, Vocabulary And Sentence Structure Of The Hebrew Bible (Paperback)
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.

I believe the Masorites were trying to deceive and keep others from finding truth by adding vowel points, etc.
