If you would like to learn Hebrew so you can study your Bible better, but you can't spare two years for college or seminary courses, then Hebrew for the Rest of Us is for you. Developed by Hebrew scholar and instructor Lee Fields as a companion to William Mounce's Greek for the Rest of Us, this revolutionary crash-course on "baby Hebrew" will acquaint you with the essentials of the language and deepen your understanding of God's Word. You'll gain a sound knowledge of basic Hebrew, and you'll learn how to use tools that will add muscle to your Bible studies.
