In March of 2008, Zondervan released its publication of A Reader’s Hebrew Bible. This book has been in the works for a number of years and is patterned after Zondervan’s A Reader’s Greek New Testament (now in its second edition). The editors of this biblical languages tool are Dr. A. Philip Brown (Ph.D., Bob Jones University) and Dr. Bryan W. Smith (Ph.D., Bob Jones University).
I consider myself blessed to have had the opportunity to study the biblical Greek under the instruction of both of these men. I am now benefiting from their labors in the Hebrew language.
Prior to the release of this biblical languages tool, I contacted both Phil Brown and Bryan Smith to congratulate them on the completion of this project. I also sent a series of questions, asking them to describe this project to me. They both responded to my questions and gave me permission to share them with you. I would like to present their responses in two parts. Part 1 is the Q&A with Phil Brown. Part 2 will be the Q&A with Bryan Smith.
