Praise for Intermediate Biblical Hebrew
"Cook and Holmstedt have produced a true intermediate teaching grammar that presents challenging concepts in a clear and engaging format. The authors are working on the cutting edge of linguistic approaches to Biblical Hebrew, but they have also given careful thought to the classroom experience, effective strategies for retention, and making learning enjoyable."
--Eric J. Tully, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"Instructors will welcome the breadth and inductive approach of Intermediate Biblical Hebrew; students will recognize their holistic comprehension after working through the grammar. It will prove an excellent tool for the twenty-first century."
--David Vanderhooft, Boston College
"The lively illustrated text of the Elijah narrative invites a focus on comprehension, and bonus full-color images of the Aleppo Codex add to the visual feast. Each lesson refreshes and expands understanding of grammatical issues arising from the text, with the option of using communicative pedagogy. A winner for an engaging intermediate class."
--Jill Firth, Ridley College Melbourne
"Intermediate Biblical Hebrew fills a real need. The authors delve into areas not frequently covered in grammar books, including syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. Cook and Holmstedt pave new ground with this book, which will serve intermediate students--and, I hasten to add, advanced students as well--as they pursue the delight of reading the Bible in the original."
--Gary A. Rendsburg, Rutgers University
"Cook and Holmstedt deliver an exciting intermediate grammar that engages the senses and proves that learning a dead language does not have to be a lifeless prerequisite to further studies. Students will come away with a genuine love of the language and an ability to use it effectively."
--Julie C. M?ller, Grove City College
"Cook and Holmstedt are two of the most linguistically sophisticated scholars working in Biblical Hebrew today. In this book, they show that they are also among the most pedagogically sophisticated. With the vibrant illustrations of Philip Williams, students will enjoy the process of working through the Elijah narrative so much they may not even realize how much they are learning."
--Aaron J. Koller, Yeshiva University
"Delightful and engaging, Intermediate Biblical Hebrew fills the need for a second-year or intermediate-level Hebrew textbook, a stage of Hebrew pedagogy that has been strangely neglected till now. A joy to read and use, it will be a favorite of instructors and students alike!"
--John Bergsma, Franciscan University of Steubenville; coauthor of A Catholic Introduction to the Bible: Old Testament
"Offers a singular combination of textually immersive pedagogy, first-rate linguistic scholarship, and dynamic reading exercises that help make study fun. This intermediate textbook will find a welcome place in my cycle of teaching."
--Daniel R. Driver, Atlantic School of Theology, Halifax, Nova Scotia
