  1. I could add quite a few more to my list as well, but then it wouldn’t be a “top 10 list” — and also, I’m currently reading through some that I haven’t yet finished, and there are some that I don’t ever mean to finish.

  2. Mike, nice list. I’ve got several of them. Where did you get this one:

    How Biblical Languages Work: A Student’s Guide to Learning Hebrew and Greek

    I can’t find it on

  3. So you found it then? Its published by Kregel. The ISBN is 0825426448.

    Its good. I’m half way through it. Its a basic survey of Greek and Hebrew. They give beginning students basic surveys of Greek & Hebrew phonology, morphology, syntax, and even a bit of discourse and semantics. It focuses on how Greek & Hebrew are different or similar to English.

    The book is also very basic – I’ve found myself skimming it through parts just because I think to myself, “Okay, I know that…I know that…” Its intended for the person who has had no training in phonetics or topics above. So in a sense, there’s nothing else like it in print.
