Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Unique Academic Hebrew Text Ben Zvi's intermediate textbook is much, much more than an ordinary text in Ancient Hebrew Readings. It constantly refers to the most common elementary Hebrew grammars, making the cross from elementary to intermediate studies exceedingly smooth. Furthermore, Ben Zvi in quick to refer to other, more advanced texts, such as Waltke and O'Connor's text on Hebrew syntax. Beyond these assets, Ben Zvi makes this text even more user-friendly by combining the information of a textbook with questions and answer space like a workbook. In all, Ben Zvi is exceedingly usable.
