A good book having a misleading title
3 stars By Ian Thomason, Mar 14 2009
Lee Field's, "Hebrew for the Rest of Us" has been published as the Hebrew language equivalent to Bill Mounce's, "Greek for the Rest of Us"; however, the similarity of titles aside, the two works could hardly be more different! Whilst "HRU" is certainly well written I doubt that it would meet the needs of the intended audience, non-Hebrew trained Christian readers. It is simply too demanding. Positively, the text is replete with test questions, which is surely a 'good' thing. Negatively, it lacks any sort of answer key, which for a work of this sort must be a 'bad' thing.

As someone who tutors tertiary-level students in the biblical languages, I believe "HRU" would best serve the needs of those who are engaged in instructor-led learning at a theological/Bible college, or as a refresher text for those who had previously studied the language. Perhaps the ideal niche for the work would be a course along the lines of "introduction to Hebrew". But the interested 'layman' looking for a 'self-directed learner-friendly' text should probably look elsewhere (say, Kittel et al, "Biblical Hebrew: a Text and Workbook").
