    It has now been well over a year since I posted my review on this resource. So I chatted with Logos support this morning (June 25, 2018) to see if any of the issues raised by myself and others have been addressed. Unfortunately that is not the case. I tried to update my review but couldn’t find a way to do it, so I deleted my initial one to post this new one. This book is actually an excellent resource and I think it’s a real shame that the Logos version was done so poorly. I also find the 4 star rating very misleading for new customers who think they are buying a digital copy of the printed version, which is NOT what they will get. Basics of Biblical Hebrew from Pratico and Van Pelt is such an excellent book that it has become one of the standard works in the Biblical-Hebrew-world. It really deserves better than what is offered here in the Logos store. Please, Logos would you have another look at this resource and fix the problems of the digital version. _____________ My original review from March 2017: I own the hard copy of this book and I love it because unlike other grammars this one uses color coded text to highlight certain spelling patterns and grammatical usage. Actually the color coding is what makes this grammar so unique. However, when I ordered the Logos version, I found that the color coding was blatantly absent. I already have enough grammars without color coding and the only reason I bought this version in addition to the others I already own is *because* of the color coding. So, needless to say that I was disappointed when I found out that that the color codes were missing. I am giving the Logos version only 2 stars for leaving out the one thing that makes this grammar unique among others. I’d give 5 for the printed version, but this one I returned for a refund.

    Like other users have reported there are typos and color schemes used in the physical book to mark important information are missing in this version. Poor quality.

    Riddled with typographical errors not found in the print edition. Logos has something wrong with the OCR software that converted the Hebrew script. The mistakes happen commonly in the grammar and the workbook with these forms: ע and צ ד and ר ה and ח I used to suggest the Logos edition to my students, but I can no longer do so due to quality issues in the Logos edition.
