Summary and Info
This book is excellent for the student of Biblical Hebrew. Often times, many beginning students do not fully learn the rules of syntax in the first couple of semesters of Biblical Hebrew, and it is not until the student begins to read in upper level classes that the fundamentals of syntax are truly necessary. This book meets the need for a concise guide for syntax, explaining in simple ways how things such as the waw verbal sequences and the varied uses of prepositional prefixes work in sentences. The explanations are very simple, and a student who has performed competently in one or two semesters of Hebrew should not have any trouble discerning the terms and lingo of Hebrew grammar and syntax. The book is basically a highly abridged version of Waltke and O'Connor's Biblical Hebrew Syntax, a thick and essential volume that students will want to graduate to upon mastering Arnold and Choi's smaller volume.I have used this book quite extensively in my own exegesis classes (Dr. Bill Arnold is one my profs) and it has served me very well. Thus, I recommend it to any student of Hebrew that needs reinforcement in their understanding of Hebrew syntax.
