Item Description...
This book was written for the purpose of classroom use at the college or seminary level. This grammar has emphasized careful selection of the exercises used. In the back, a glossary, verb charts, and subject index are also included. Conjugations: Qal, Nifal, Piel, Hithpael, etc. Page H. Kelley is Professor of OT at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY. He has taught Hebrew for over forty years and presents this grammar out of his vast experience.

Publishers Description
Comprehensive in scope, this carefully crafted introductory grammar of Biblical Hebrew offers easy-to-understand explanations, numerous biblical illustrations, and a wide range of imaginative, biblically based exercises. According to Page Kelley, his book is "designed not so much for seasoned travelers as for those who are just starting out on a strange and wonderful journey."The book consists of thirty-one lessons arranged as follows: the nonverbal aspects of the language (lessons 1-10); the verb forms and their functions, with special attention to the strong verbs (lessons 11-20); the coordinate relationship of verbs, a topic alluded to but seldom developed in other grammars (lesson 21); and a comprehensive introduction to each of the ten classes of weak verbs (lessons 22-31). The grammar is accompanied by eleven complete verb charts, an extensive vocabulary list, a glossary of grammatical terms, and a subject index.Kelley employs a method that one reviewer has described as a cross between a straight presentation of grammatical principles and rules and a semi-inductive presentation of concepts through the exercises. Each lesson first presents new grammatical concepts, with biblical examples, and then provides reinforcing exercises that Kelley has judiciously selected from the biblical text (the exercises do not presuppose vocabulary and grammar not already covered).Deriving from the author's forty years of experience in teaching Biblical Hebrew to seminary students, and enthusiastically employed in its developing stages by instructors at a variety of colleges and seminaries, Kelley's "Biblical Hebrew: An Introductory Grammar" promises to be an excellent teaching tool with high potential as a textbook. Kelly has designed it for use in either a one-semester or a two-semester course.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Clear grammar with good depth  Jan 27, 2008
Kelley has made this grammar perfect for the beginning student - it combines clarity, no doubt from his vast experience as a Hebrew teacher, with a depth, aiming at telling the student not only 'How?' but also 'Why?'. The verbs are dealt with traditionally - but with an initial overview of all the stems and then devoting a chapter each to the irregulars. Clear verb tables and glossary. Reader friendly format. Good exercises with real Bible examples.
The best introductory grammar I've seen.  Dec 9, 2007
First, let me say that I've been studying Hebrew for around 4 years. So far, I've seen most of the books on the market, and this introductory grammar is the best I've seen.

With that having been said, a few points need to be made.

1. Do not purchase this book if you are an absolute beginner to Hebrew, and have no experience with the Hebrew langauge what so ever. This book is NOT a primer, and should not be considered such. I know some universities and colleges use books like this for first year Hebrew, however, that is in a classroom setting with fellow students and a teacher to help you out if you get stuck with something. Not to mention the teachers always have their "input" which helps explain some terms and grammar which might seem cumbersome.

For the absoulte beginner, I recommend reading some of Jeff Benners free lessons for introductory Hebrew on the internet at the Ancient Hebrew Research center. He even has sound clips to accompany the letters and vowels. Just do a web search, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

2. If you buy this book, be sure to buy companion handbook that goes with this grammar. It will supply you with all the answers to all the questions that are presented in this grammar.

You want Hebrew Bible examples with grammar?   Apr 16, 2007
Page Kelley's "Biblical Hebrew" is loaded with lots of Hebrew scriptures to illustrate his grammatical points. If you like learning with Biblical examples, this is for you. There are exercises in each grammar chapter, plus separate Heb to Eng Vocabulary, verb tables, and glossary.
Somewhat helpful  Jan 25, 2007
I was looking for a bridge from my good commandment of modern Hebrew to Biblical language and found this particular book kind of disappointing.
First, its grammar explanations are not always satisfying even its own examples, let alone other Biblical verses
Second, exercises are very dull and are just the same for each lesson and very basic and not challenging enough
Third, I find it very confusing to learn the verb system by stem patterns ( which are hard to recognize in text sometimes ), instead of going over 7 stem patterns and showing how different verbs behave themselves in different stem patterns ( well, it might be helpful perspective nevertheless)
Fourth, the list of words at the end of each lesson very poorly reflect the vocabulary of the lesson and vice versa - many words never show up in the main text( the same for the hebrew-english dictionary in the end )
Fifth, I just couldn't manage some grammatical concepts, even reading it over and over again, like for example dividing the word into syllables, all in all he says you can tell the new syllable if it starts with vocal sh'va and... you can tell the vocal sh'va if it starts a new syllable ( brrrr.. )
But I'd say it gave me some basic tools for Bible reading, some reference point. The book could be improved very easily and its print and format I found very nice and handy
A nice book....  Nov 26, 2005
It's a nice book for beginner to learn Hebrew.The grammer and the structure are easy. The exercise of each lesson is quite helpful.The disadvantage is that you have to take a long time to finish it...
