    Elementary Biblical Hebrew: An Introduction to the Language and its History gives students a general overview of the language and focuses on its main characteristics. While many standard textbooks assume that students plan to study the language academically and in-depth, Elementary Biblical Hebrew avoids a heavy-handed academic approach and instead emphasizes the basics of general understanding.

    Students are exposed to commentaries and word studies that provide a strong linguistic foundation while introducing Biblical Hebrew's primary components. Chapters include strategies and hints for learning the language, as well as activities and exercises that allow for application.

    Elementary Biblical Hebrew takes an ancient language and places it in an engaging, relevant context to make it come alive. The text is enriched with charts, illustrations, and full-color photography. Elementary Biblical Hebrew is an excellent choice for courses in the language, as well as introductory or survey courses on the Old Testament.

    Chet Roden holds a Ph.D. in Biblical studies and the Old Testament from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
