Details


Of Greek and Hebrew, Hebrew strikes the most fear in the heart of the Bible student. The alphabet does not look anything like English. The vocabulary offers almost no points of contact with English. The verb system is utterly alien. And the lexicons, grammars and textbooks are wrapped up in a metalanguage--spiked with Latin--that is daunting in itself. For those who feel that studying the English Old Testament is a challenge, the thought of reading it in Hebrew is extreme. Hebrew students need all the help they can get.

If you are beginning your study of Hebrew and the Hebrew Bible, this pocket dictionary by Todd J. Murphy is for you. From ablative to zaqeph qaton, it defines the tangled terms that infest Hebrew textbooks, grammars and lexicons. Here is a book that will deliver you from the perils of the Piel and the thicket of metathesis. It is an indispensable glossary that will cut through that technical language--neither Hebrew nor English--that hovers like ground fog over the study and discussion of biblical Hebrew. Now you can devote more time to enjoying biblical Hebrew in all its richness.

The IVP Essentials contains a number of 'gems', but the Pocket Dictionary for the Study of Biblical Hebrew is perhaps close to my list of high achievements. Specialized dictionaries are simply that "specialized". Without attempting to over specialize this dictionary offers an excellent range of terms in the modern scientific study of biblical Hebrew along with an excellent balance of linguistic and literary terms, all packaged in one essential format. But the plus goes further in Accordance with hypertext cross referencing in which related terms may be seen at a single glance in the text. And added to this hyper-texting feature is the ability to click on reference to the three strong Hebrew reference grammars in Accordance: Joüon, GKC, and IBHS (the addition of A Biblical Hebrew Reference Grammar by Christo H.J. van der Merwe et al would be a nice inclusion in Accordance since it is also included in the dictionary as one of the grammars).
