    A Workbook for Intermediate Hebrew

    Grammar, Exegesis, and Commentary on Jonah and Ruth

    Designed to engage the Hebrew text and reinforce patterns and principles of grammar and syntax learned in beginning Hebrew, A Workbook for Intermediate Hebrew is the first of its kind. Both instructors and intermediate students will appreciate its step-by-step, interactive approach to the books of Jonah and Ruth.

    Features include:

    • Well-crafted questions related to morphology and syntax. All answers are provided in a helpful “Teacher’s Guide” section.
    • In-text and footnote references allow this text to be used in conjunction with most beginning Hebrew grammars.
    • Technical notes on problematic and/or rare forms and constructions.
    • Interpretive notes remind the student that the overall goal of analysis is interpretation.
    • A useful parsing guide (presented in eleven charts) that enables students to parse most verbal forms.
    • Glossaries for both Jonah and Ruth are keyed to lexicons so students can easily access a more thorough discussion of any given word.
    • Numerous footnote references to advanced grammars, standard lexicons, critical commentaries, and various Bible translations.

    "After studying the Hebrew text of Jonah and Ruth with the aid of this workbook, students will be much further down the path of being competent readers and interpreters of the Hebrew Bible."

    "A much-needed tool for the study of morphology, grammar and syntax in biblical exegesis, this workbook is a welcome addition for teaching intermediate Hebrew. It is also a great resource for any who wish to review Hebrew grammar and syntax on their own as they study the texts of Jonah and Ruth."

    —Allen P. Ross
    Professor of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School
    Author, Introducing Biblical Hebrew

    "This book provides the perfect next step, showing students how to use their skills in very practical ways, and referring them to further literature, should they desire to dig deeper."

    —David M. Howard Jr.
    Dean, Center for Biblical and Theological Foundations
    Professor of Old Testament, Bethel Seminary

    "This marvelous tool will help Hebrew students make the difficult transition from Hebrew grammar to Hebrew exegesis."

    —Michael A. Grisanti
    Associate Professor of Old Testament,
    The Master’s Seminary

    "With a nice balance between assignments and comments about forms and structure, this workbook guides the student step-by-step. The student who completes the exercises will be better equipped to confront a Hebrew text and interpret it properly."

    —Thomas J. Finley
    Professor and Chair of Old Testament and Semitics,
    Talbot School of Theology
    Coauthor, How Biblical Languages Work

    "This interactive workbook is a fantastic tool provided by a long time teacher of Hebrew who knows what needs to be done, knows how to do it, and does it in an interesting way."

    —Richard E. Averbeck
    Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages,
