I will be reviewing this book in the next week or two, but it looks important enough to post a link to it at this point.  LOGOS currently does not offer the book, but I suspect that they should.

I was looking for an excerpt somewhere, but could not find one, not even on the Zondervan site. It looks like it is very current though, published just last month.

Here is a snapshot of the TOC:

The  book is an encyclopedia of grammatical issues or interest to the student studying Hebrew.

DId you publish your review Floyd?

Not yet - the holidays slowed me down. I was hoping for 89 in 2015; only got 88 done. This one will either be number 3 next week or number 1 for the week after.

The review has been published. You can find the original here: http://pastor-patrick.blogspot.com/2016/01/the-biblical-hebrew-companion-review.html 

Here is the text:

=======================================================

It has been 40+ years since I sat in my first Hebrew language course. Since that time I have learned and used more Fortran, COBOL. Basic, Pascal, Lisp, Assembly Language, etc, than Hebrew. Now 40 years later, I have returned to the pulpit wishing I could remember some of that early Hebrew (and Greek) that I had learned years ago.

 

This reference book serves part of that purpose. In fact, I wish I had it by my side while learning Hebrew - as it takes each major part of speech, each verbal conjunction, each grammatical construction and gives insight to the reader on its role in the language. The entries try to address three questions:

 

  1. What does it look like?

  2. What does it do?

  3. How it might effect the exegesis of the passage?

A number of appendices add value as they bring together lists of topics that don’t fit elsewhere: vowels, consonants, Syllables, Pronunciation, ect. Also included are a scripture index and  suggested bibliography for further study grouped by topic.

 

The book will not serve as a Hebrew textbook, but as a great reference tool to set on the desk of the student or pastor working with the original languages. I cannot  but hope that a similar volume will be forthcoming from the publisher for the Greek student.

______________

This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review. The opinion are mine alone.

Blessings,
Floyd
