With profound appreciation, we here offer our thanks to those who toiled for hours in proofreading, evaluating, and correcting this work. Responsibility for any remaining errors is entirely ours. Special thanks are extended to Anna Strom, Jason Andersen, Sarah Lysaker, Dr. Rebekah Josberger, and Dr. David Stabnow. Their thoroughness, enthusiasm, and honesty are deeply appreciated. We also thank Dr. Kenneth Turner of Bryan College and Brian Tabb and Ryan Griffith of Bethlehem College and Seminary for trying early drafts of this material in the classroom. We must also voice the deepest gratitude to our own Hebrew students at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Northwestern College (MN), who patiently bore with the early manuscript versions of this grammar while kindly making suggestions for its improvement.
Finally and chiefly, we joyfully give praise to God, whose clear and sufficient disclosure of himself and his will through the Scripture makes such a grammar possible and necessary. Being
confident in all God’s past and future grace won for us through Messiah Jesus, we pray our grammar will help equip the next generation to study, practice, and teach all of God’s Word in
God’s world for God’s glory.
