Additional Information

Rather than devote space to the type of theological and exegetical comments found in most commentaries, this series focuses on the Hebrew text and its related issues, syntactic and otherwise. The volumes serve as prequels to commentary proper, providing guides to understanding the linguistic characteristics of the texts from which the messages of the texts may then be derived. In addition to this, Ruth, the newest volume in the series, handbooks on Amos, Genesis 1-11, and Jonah are also now available.

To maintain and improve my Hebrew after seminary, one of my professors recommended that I work through this volume. I have 20 pages left, and the journey has been invaluable. Holmstedt's analysis of Ruth's syntax has, I feel, given me a better grasp of the language and greater confidence/capability in reading Hebrew.

I recommend it to all, especially to those who worked through Jonah in seminary and are looking for a place to continue. I look forward to going through his analysis of Esther (and later Ecclesiasties), also in this series.
This handbook, by Robert Holmstedt, is essentially a syntactic commentary on the Hebrew text of Ruth. This makes it an extremely valuable resource for the budding Hebrew student as it fills a gap between introductory textbooks and the sometimes daunting intermediate/advanced grammars. Holmstedt's commentary walks the student through each verse explaining everything from parsings to word-order choices. Additionally, Holmstedt is one of the very few Hebrew scholars who apply generative linguistics to Biblical Hebrew. As a result of this methodology he takes some syntactic stances that will be puzzling to many Hebrew students and scholars alike—most notable is his insistence that Hebrew is a SVO language, but that there is nearly always something to "mark" a clause and elevate the V over the S. Helpfully, Holmstedt provides a fairly thorough and technical essay on this as part of the introduction. Throughout the text of the commentary this issue causes zero confusion,... Read more
Beautiful, clean Hebrew font here! I often fear purchasing OT technical works in Kindle because in some works, the Hebrew font cannot be re-sized along with the English text, and/or the Hebrew text has such poor resolution that even when enlarged it is almost unreadable. No such problem here.

I cannot wait to take my intermediate Hebrew-reading skills to the next level, after I finish the Hebrew Exegesis course I am taking online right now. Looks like I have found the perfect guidebook to help me continue with profitable self-study when I begin translating through the book of Ruth.
