A Hebrew Reader for Ruth presents the complete Hebrew text of the book of Ruth, a verse-by-verse translation, and an analysis of every word, including its form, morphology, meaning, and syntax. Further, utilizing all of the standard reference grammars, Vance cites every discussion of Ruth found in them, usually including the discussion itself in quotation or in summary.
A Hebrew Reader for Ruth is intended for classroom and personal study. The book of Ruth makes an excellent first text for students of Classical Hebrew. First, it uses for the most part standard morphology, syntax, and vocabulary, including a number of feminine verb forms. Second, Ruth is an interesting and well-crafted story, whose character and plot development keep students interested, and introduces them to many of the techniques of biblical Hebrew narrative. Finally, Ruth is a manageable length, which realistically allows its use in a semester.
