Patience Rewarded - DCH Released
We were confident that we would have The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew ready for the ETS/SBL meetings, and indeed, we almost did, but then we discovered one entire letter was missing! We now have the complete set and are pleased to announce its release to those who already bought it, and to those who wish to take advantage of the introductory special through the end of December 2012.
This is the complete 8 volume set of The Dictionary of Classical Hebrew, edited by David J.A. Clines, a completely new and innovative work.
Unlike previous dictionaries, which have been dictionaries of Biblical Hebrew, this is the first dictionary of the classical Hebrew language to include the Bible, Ben SIra, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and all the other known Hebrew inscriptions and manuscripts.
This dictionary covers the period from the earliest times to 200 CE. It lists and analyzes every occurrence of each Hebrew word that occurs in texts of that period, with an English translation of every Hebrew word and phrase cited.
Among its special features are: a list of the non-biblical texts cited (especially the Dead Sea Scrolls), a word frequency index for each letter of the alphabet, a substantial bibliography (from Volume 2 onward) and an English-Hebrew index in each volume.
