In this volume, John Cook provides a foundational analysis of the Aramaic text of Ezra and Daniel. The analysis is distinguished by the detailed yet comprehensive attention paid to the text. Cook’s analysis is a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Aramaic text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Aramaic Ezra and Daniel also reflects the most up-to-date advances in scholarship on grammar and linguistics. This handbook proves itself an indispensable tool for anyone committed to a deep reading of the biblical text.

"Aramaic Ezra and Daniel is an excellent volume. The content of the volume far exceeds expectations for a 'handbook.' It is not only a helpful guide; it offers many fresh insights."

—Choong-Leong Seow, Distinguished Professor of Hebrew Bible, Vanderbilt University

John A. Cook is Professor of Old Testament and Director of Hebrew Language Instruction at Asbury Theological Seminary.
