Learn Biblical Hebrew by Rev. John Dobson is a tremendous book that helps you learn the basics of the hebrew language and understanding the culture more. When I was learning biblical hebrew my professor recommened this book to me and it has helped me grasp a better understanding of the Hebrew language. Wonderful read!!
A really helpful way to learn biblical Hebrew, in my opinion!
