Item Description...
Available in this one volume edition, the Handbook of Biblical Hebrew is designed to be a complete tool for the student of biblical Hebrew. The book combines reading lessons with grammar, paradigms, and basic vocabulary. LaSor uses the inductive method, studying directly from the text, rather than the conventional method of language study in which beginning students learn the rules of grammar and syntax and memorize vocabulary, often without reading the actual text. The lessons are based on the book of Esther, the complete Hebrew text of which is included in this volume, because it presents little difficulty in textual matters and has an excellent vocabulary. LaSor has also included readings from other portions of the Bible. Field-tested and proven, LaSor's grammar is sure to give students the tools they need as they begin their study of biblical Hebrew.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Finally, a great tool returns  Jun 8, 2007
LaSor's approach to grammar was exactly what I wanted and needed almost thirty years ago when I began the greatest experience of my life--reading the Tanak for myself. Most grammars are a presentation of grammar rules, and evidently boring as hell. [editorial] This might explain so many Christian ministers who are really more interested in Greek than Hebrew cannot understand scripture.[editorial]

You need such grammars listing rules and paradigms, no doubt, especially the "encyclopedic" grammars. I have them all, I suppose: Gesenius, Jouon, Merwe, Waltke/O'Connor, etc., and use them. LaSor is not a denial of this. But it is the approach that makes the difference. He follows the grammar work of Harper and Powis Smith from over a century ago using the inductive method.

The inductive method as used by Harper and LaSor puts you straight into a biblical text. LaSor uses the book of Esther (Harper used Genesis). You are constantly in the text and then to the rules, learning them more in actual context, and to discern the text. LaSor uses rules based mostly on Gesenius, giving the section in Gesenius as reference but explaining enough to be left without Gesenius if that is your situation.

The original LaSor was a three item affair. You had a volume 1 "Lessons," 2 "Grammar" and a booklet of BHS Esther. It was a virtual "book party." I used the books outside of university, on my own, and did just fine, thank you.

I do not own the single volume above, and still use my old version of LaSor's program. I assume that the single volume version contains all the same information. For years students have asked about the best classical Hebrew grammar to start their study, and I say LaSor, but it's not available now. I couldn't find it. But you can now.

Not everyone benefits from inductive approach. If not, most of the grammars you will find out there will be of a "rules" approach that may suit you better. Graphic design has made some of the more modern grammars clearer, especially in the binyanim "the building" upon stems to form verbs (consonants will be dark text with lighter vowels, etc.). So most are not markedly different.
