This product is no longer available for individual purchase. It has been replaced by the Third Edition of Basics of Biblical Hebrew.
The Basics of Biblical Hebrew takes the groundbreaking integrative approach of William Mounce’s widely used Basics of Biblical Greek and applies it to learning and teaching biblical Hebrew. This book makes learning Hebrew a natural process and shows from the very beginning how understanding Hebrew helps in understanding the Old Testament.
Features of the Second Edition:
- Combines the best of inductive and deductive approaches.
- Uses actual examples from the Hebrew Old Testament rather than “made-up” illustrations.
- Emphasizes the structural pattern of the Hebrew language rather than rote memorization, resulting in a simple, enjoyable, and effective learning process.
- Colored text highlights particles added to nouns and verbs, allowing easy recognition of new forms.
- Chapters Two (Hebrew Vowels), Nine (Pronominal Suffixes), Seventeen (Waw Consecutive), Eighteen (Imperative, Cohortative, and Jussive), and Twenty-Three (Issues of Sentence Syntax) are revised and expanded.
Features of the Accordance Edition:
- Embedded audio hyperlinks in the vocabulary section play a short recording of Dr. Pratico reading each word, enhancing memorization.
- Vocabulary Frequency counts in the vocabulary sections are hyperlinked to searches in the Hebrew Bible giving instant access to a word's usage throughout the text.
- Searchable by Scripture reference, Vocabulary, Hebrew words in lexicon and many other fields.
- Includes the Appendix, lexicon, and Subject Index.

I'm brand new to this grammar, but I've seen it advertised on Amazon frequently, and I know that it is very popular. What I can say after having it here in Accordance for about 2 weeks is that, to my complete surprise, this Practico Van-Pelt grammar was the *only* one of my 5-7 Hebrew grammars that pulled up results in the Research Tab when searching for "qamats" (and seven other potential various spellings of this word). I wanted to do some studying on the vowels, and was shocked that no other grammar found hits for this vowel, but at least Practico Van-Pelt did; and I enjoyed some basic review on this vowel. So I'm grateful to have it.
