Endorsement excerpts for According to Their Kinds:


“Mastering the vocabulary of the Hebrew Bible has always been a problem for students. Picture Hebrew is an important advance in the teaching of the vocabulary of the Hebrew Bible.”

Jacobus A. Naudé and Cynthia L. Miller-Naudé, University of the Free State, South Africa


“Tools like Scheumanns’ According to Their Kinds allow us to break free from the worn out grammar-translation models and engage students with stimuli rooted in research on how we acquire languages.”

Robert D. Holmstedt, University of Toronto


“I know of no comparable resource for helping students internalize biblical Hebrew vocabulary. The vivid pictures help connect Hebrew words with the real world rather than with an English gloss, thus aligning with how people normally learn languages. The method is tested; the results are sure.”

Jason S. DeRouchie, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary


“The more senses we can engage in the study of the biblical languages the better! I hope students will be helped to learn Hebrew vocabulary by this creative and visually engaging resource.”

James M. Hamilton, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary


“Thank you to Picture Hebrew for another useful resource, this one for reviewing the most common vocabulary items in the Hebrew Bible in a way that does not use English glosses as the primary interface, and grouping them into categories for easier recall.”

Brian Schultz, Fresno Pacific University


According to Their Kinds helps students to think in Hebrew (and expedites the vocabulary acquisition process) by giving students a picture to associate the meaning directly with the Hebrew word, rather than using English as a gateway.”

John C. Beckman, Bethlehem College & Seminary


“For teachers who want their students to learn more and suffer less, I highly recommend this resource.”

Jeremiah J. Davidson, The Pastors School at First Baptist Church of Atibaia, Brazil


“This tool will help beginning, intermediate, and even advanced students find renewed enjoyment in studying Hebrew vocabulary.”

Chip Hardy, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary


According to Their Kinds is a gift to anyone wishing to learn to read and study Jesus’ Bible.”

Paul Ferris, Bethel Seminary
