Praise for the Print Edition

The T&T Clark Hebrew Primer For Revision and Consolidation by A.A. Macintosh with C.L. Engle is a very welcome addition to the corpus of works which seek to instruct English speakers who already have a basic or rudimentary knowledge of Hebrew.

—Judith Hadley, associate professor of theology and religious studies, Villanova University

For the beginning student this primer provides an excellent didactic aid with the central principles of Hebrew grammar and the basic biblical vocabulary and for the more advanced student it serves as an effective tool in rehearsing these areas.

Emanuel Tov, professor of Bible, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Now at last we have a concise but clear primer to trace the pathway back to a working knowledge of the language. And all this from the hands of experienced teachers who know how to spice the text with enlivening features which they have discovered help the difficult bits to ‘stick.’

H.G.M. Williamson, regius professor of Hebrew, University of Oxford
