About the Author

Brian L. Webster received his Ph.D. from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion and is currently Associate Professor of Old Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. He is the author of The Essential Psalms Companion (2009). Professor Webster has been published in Bibliotheca Sacra as well as the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert series.


"Webster's approach to Hebrew grammar is...very innovative. The inclusion of the Interactive CD-Rom is, in my opinion, worth the price of the book ...Not only does the CD include the TekScroll program, but it also includes a full workbook, several reference aids, and vocabulary flash cards ready to print. ...Overall, I highly recommend the Cambridge Introduction to Biblical Hebrew whether for the person interested in learning first year Hebrew individually or for professors of Bible colleges or seminaries who are looking for a cutting-edge grammar to use in the classroom. While this grammar is not for the faint of heart on the front end, the student who uses this grammar will likely have an easier time learning Hebrew throughout and likely come out ahead of those students using other grammars. Moreover, its pedagogical sensitivity provides a nice balance and should make learning first year Hebrew a joyful experience." Rob Kashow, Tolle Lege! A Canonical Perspective
