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!
