Three more reviews of “Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary.”

There is great joy in watching one’s creation move out into the world. Since my last post on Biblical Hebrew Vocabulary by Conceptual Categories: A Student’s Guide to Nouns in the Old Testament, three more reviews have popped up!

Kerry Lee at Bite-Sized Exegesis writes in a long-gushing review:

I, personally, find it to be quite a useful ready reference, particularly as a way of familiarizing myself with the vocabulary of a conceptual category that I had not yet had occasion to master, but also for its curated bibliography and suggestions for further reading. Overall, this is a brilliantly designed and executed book that addresses a real need in the field of Biblical Hebrew studies and pedagogy.

John Barker, OFM, reviews it for The Bible Today:

Students of biblical Hebrew may find this a useful complement to standard vocabulary resources, many of which are listed in an extensive bibliography at the end.

Unfortunately, this review seems to only exist behind paywalls.

Oddest of all, a French biblioblogger has reviewed the book. He rightly discerns that our book is for more than mere memorization:

The work is not very thick, but, in my opinion, relatively effective, for the least that we bother to approach it with method.

In a series of blog posts soon to come out on the Logos Academic Blog, I’ll review what this method is. In the meantime, be sure to get a copy on Amazon, or at the Zondervan booth if you are headed to the SBL!
