Mail was good to me today.  just got my copy of the new biblical Hebrew grammar by my former grad school classmates, Rob Holmstedt and John Cook: Beginning Biblical Hebrew: A Grammar and Illustrated Reader. Rob and John started this pedagogical journey while they were still at the UW-Madison. Congratulations to both of them.

The grammar looks great. I’ll of course be reading through it for useful contributions to my online MEMRA Hebrew course. It has lots of biblical readings with cartoons (any biblical Hebrew grammar with cartoons is certainly worth reading). I hope many of you will get a copy!
