Book Review – The Biblical Hebrew Companion for Bible Software Users: Grammatical Terms Explained for Exegesis (16/2)

For someone who is illiterate on Hebrew yet have access to resources on Logos, I often console myself that these expensively resources are investments that will reap it’s rewards in the future when I finally master the language. This was the case until I found this book.

The Biblical Hebrew Companion for Bible Software Users: Grammatical Terms Explained for ExegesisMichael Williams has written this book to help those who are very new to Hebrew and who has access to resources on bible software. Within the book, Williams explains and teaches some of the grammatical issues of the Hebrew language. As he does it, Williams shows the readers examples of how this affects the exegesis of a passage in the bible. I found this very helpful. This helps the readers to see immediately the importance and application of what they have just learnt.

However, as one who does not know Hebrew, I cannot say that I understood everything within the book. This book does require you to have some basic knowledge of Hebrew. I foresee myself using this as a quick reference guide the next time I’m studying Hebrew. This small and quick guide will surely be helpful to those who at least have some basic understanding of Hebrew and access to great bible study resources.
