A new edition of A Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar is on the horizon (Sept. 2017). Let's hope Faithlife doesn't drop the ball on this one! Yes

Citation: Van der Merwe, Christo H. J., Jacobus A. Naudé, and Jan H. Kroeze. A Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar. 2nd ed. Bloomsbury T & T Clark, 2017.

About A Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar

This new and fully revised edition of the A Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar serves as a user-friendly and up-to-date source of information on the morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics of Biblical Hebrew verbs, nouns and other word classes (prepositions, conjunctions, adverbs, modal words, negatives, focus particles, discourse markers, interrogatives and interjections). It also contains one of the most elaborate treatments of Biblical Hebrew word order yet published in a grammar. 

Compiled by authors with extensive experience in the teaching of Hebrew, the text is rendered both easily accessible and a fascinating examination of the language, building upon the initial publication by incorporating up-to-date developments in the study of the Hebrew Bible. This grammar will be of service both to students who have completed an introductory or intermediate course in Biblical Hebrew, and also to more advanced scholars seeking to take advantage of traditional and recent descriptions of the language that go beyond the basic morphology of Biblical Hebrew.

Links to hardback, paperback, and PDF eBook formats (the latter two being very modestly priced!):

This is a major update by the way, reflecting significant advancements in the study of Biblical Hebrew. I hope this grammar doesn't end up flying right under the radar!

It's resources like these where Logos shines (e.g., exegetical guide, biblical reference & citation searches, the cited by tool paired with collections, detailed collapsible/expandable outlines, etc.).

This excellent Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar will be available in just over a month. Any other Logos forum users interested? (I suppose all of the Hebrew nerds are off reading Greek or Latin or something.)

I am in my log cabin under a heavy thunerstorm and my mind is in the apocalyptic literature but there will be sunshine again. Then it wil be a good time to read the reference grammar, I hope FL will get the second edition quickly through!
