More on our Beginning Biblical Hebrew

The good folks at Baker Academic have set up a website for us to use as a way to support instructors using our new textbook.

The site has a blog, a forum, an area where we will post more draft supplementary materials, and links to the existing materials that Baker has edited and makes available to instructors. 

So, if you’re using our textbook or are interested in using it, stop by the new textbook digs: 

www.beginningbiblicalhebrew.com

We will be putting up more posts there in the coming week.
