A Treatise on the use of the Tenses in Hebrew
A Treatise on the use of the Tenses in Hebrew
by S. R. Driver / Varda Books

Driver was and continues to be in many ways "the" original thinker in this area. While a lot of what he said on this subject has been rejected by some, there are great deal of his insight that remain invaluable. For anyone who works with the Hebrew verbal system, this is a book you *must* have read. The book contains almost 9,000 "live" biblical references to Tanakh.
