Available in this one volume edition, the Handbook of Biblical Hebrew is designed to be a complete tool for the student of biblical Hebrew. The book combines reading lessons with grammar, paradigms, and basic vocabulary. LaSor uses the inductive method, studying directly from the text, rather than the conventional method of language study in which beginning students learn the rules of grammar and syntax and memorize vocabulary, often without reading the actual text. The lessons are based on the book of Esther, the complete Hebrew text of which is included in this volume, because it presents little difficulty in textual matters and has an excellent vocabulary. LaSor has also included readings from other portions of the Bible. Field-tested and proven, LaSor's grammar is sure to give students the tools they need as they begin their study of biblical Hebrew.

The Unremembered Dead examines the motif of non-burial in the Hebrew Bible in its ancient Near Eastern contexts. Mansen proposes a new typology for analyzing references to post-mortem abuse and demonstrates the motif's variability of form and range of functions in both biblical and extra-biblical texts. Investigating the social and literary contexts in which the non-burial motif appears, Mansen establishes how gruesome threats functioned as deadly literary weapons within the biblical authors' ideologically-shaped rhetorical arsenal.

This introduction (the first edition of which was published in 1980) aims to provide basic guidance to the most important areas of Syriac studies. This second edition has been considerably expanded and in part completely rewritten in view of the many developments in the field during the last twenty-five years. After a brief first chapter indicating how Syriac is still very much alive in the twenty-first century, Chapter II looks at how Syriac studies are of relevance to a variety of other fields, notably, Biblical studies, Patristics, and the general history of the Near East, especially in Late Antiquity and the early Arab period. A brief orientation to the history of Syriac literature is offered in Chapter III, while Chapter IV sets Syriac within the context of the other Aramaic dialects. Nearly half the book is taken up by Chapter V, on the most important tools, or Instrumenta Studiorum. This should prove invaluable, both for the student commencing on study in the field, and for scholars working in adjacent areas who need some guidance in an area that may be less familiar. Histories of Syriac Literature, bibliographical aids and relevant series, periodicals, and encyclopedias. Chapter VI, in a more personal and light-hearted vein, describes some of the delights of working with Syriac manuscripts. Finally, an Appendix explains how the different Churches of Syriac tradition are related to one another and how they fit into the Christian tradition as a whole. It also sorts out the confusing variety of terms by which they are known.

Providing a comprehensive study of "oral tradition" in Israel, this volume unpacks the nature of oral tradition, the form it would have taken in ancient Israel, and the remains of it in the narrative books of the Hebrew Bible. The author presents cases of oral/written interaction that provide the best ethnographic analogies for ancient Israel and insights from these suggest a model of transmission in oral-written societies valid for ancient Israel. Miller reconstructs what ancient Israelite oral literature would have been and considers criteria for identifying orally derived material in the narrative books of the Old Testament, marking several passages as highly probable oral derivations. Using ethnographic data and ancient Near Eastern examples, he proposes performance settings for this material. The epilogue treats the contentious topic of historicity and shows that orally derived texts are not more historically reliable than other texts in the Bible.
