Dean’s book about the Masorah translated into Korean

Dean’s book about the Masorah translated into Korean

A book co-authored by Dr. Tim Crawford, dean of the College of Christian Studies, was recently translated into Korean. The Masorah of Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartenesia, which Crawford co-wrote with Page H. Kelley and Daniel S. Mynatt, was originally published in 1998. It was translated into German in 2003.
The Masorah is the body of marginal notes included with the biblical Hebrew text. Crawford’s book, which was written as a guide for students who are just learning Hebrew, is one of very few introductory books about the subject.
“Until several years ago, most people who taught Hebrew Bible in college or seminary would not teach the Masorah due to a lack of resources. Because of our book, more people are now addressing the topic because they have something accessible that they can give students to read and discuss, ” Crawford said.
