Praise for the Print Edition

I had taken eight semesters of Hebrew courses in the standard way that Hebrew is taught, and in two semesters of studying Hebrew on Dr. Fuller’s method I finally learned the language! . . . This is the best way to learn the language, bar none!

—James M. Hamilton Jr., Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

The textbook stands out on several levels. First, it is a truly elementary Hebrew grammar. It focuses on only what the student needs to know. Second, the grammar utilizes a totally deductive approach. While some modern grammars promote the inductive approach or some mixture of approaches, these authors deftly take students back to the tried and true basics. Third, the true beauty of the authors’ method is in how after the students have truly mastered the basic rules, they can then tear apart any Hebrew word and give the reasons why every dot and dash is there, why it is not there, or why the vowel has lengthened, reduced, etc. With this mastery, the student’s fear and trepidation about Hebrew melt away.

—Eric A. Mitchell, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

    This is one of the most poorly written books I've ever tried to work through. It's basically class outlines, it's not really a book. If my professor wasn't a teaching me I would never learn anything from this grammar. It communicates in an extremely convoluted manner. It's nothing but raw data with no real explanation.

    The version in Logos is very poor quality in terms of graphics. Perhaps where the book has been edited, the graphic that is pasted in is 99% of the time unreadable, which is a slight problem when the graphics are of vowels, boxes, etc. The workbook that goes with this course is of the same quality. In terms of learning the material, I felt like the content is organized best for a scavenger hunt. Imperative information is buried in footnotes often and trying to identify a clear path to success in terms of learning the material is difficult.
