Where to Purchase


Often students want to maintain their Biblical Hebrew when they're between courses or they decide to pick back up reading the Hebrew Bible, but they don't know where to start. This book provides 90 days of guided readings to help students retain their knowledge and grow their skill in reading and interpreting the Old Testament.

H. H. Hardy II, an expert in Biblical Hebrew and an experienced teacher, guides readers through level-appropriate passages selected from across the Old Testament canon, encouraging them to read and investigate a few verses each day. The book begins with easy passages and gradually increases in difficulty throughout the 90 days. Each guided reading includes the Hebrew text, explanations of unfamiliar vocabulary and verb forms, and grammatical descriptions focused on exegesis. Each day ends with a "For the Journey" section, which reflects on important details and applications of the text.

This follow-up to Hardy's Exegetical Gems from Biblical Hebrew is ideal for Hebrew language students after their first year of study and for those who want to revive their knowledge and love of Biblical Hebrew. A companion volume for Greek is available.
