This introductory grammar is the culmination of Jo Ann Hackett's more than thirty years of teaching Biblical Hebrew to college and university students. Clear explanations and helpful paradigms help students learn Hebrew quickly and well. Created for a one-semester course, but easily adaptable for a two-semester course, it includes vocabulary, exercises based on the BHS, English to Hebrew and Hebrew to English wordlists, and an annotated guide to key reference works. A resource CD provides the answers to the exercises as well as audio pronunciation for the Hebrew vocabulary, many of the paradigms and exercises, and select Old Testament readings.

Jo Ann Hackett's introductory textbook for Biblical Hebrew is exactly what every teacher and student desires: it is well written and easy to read, it isn't cluttered with information unnecessary to the beginning student, and, with its exceptionally clear descriptions, paradigms, and lessons, it is, above all, useful.
