Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (BHS) Compact Edition is identical in content to the standard edition (including the critical apparatus in Latin and the foreword in multiple languages); yet its size makes it exceptionally convenient for the student of Hebrew to carry and use. Its portable size in no way compromises the readability of both text and critical apparatus, which retains a bold, clear font.Included is a foreword in German, English, French, Spanish and Latin as well as an English and German key to the Latin words, abbreviations and other symbols in the critical apparatus.

Review 1 for Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia, Compact Edition
Date:March 10, 2011
I have had mine for 17 years and though the cover has disconnected, the binding has stayed very well intact. This text is one column per page, has excellent and durable paper and is very readable in font size and print, though if you wear reading glasses and especially if you are new to Hebrew, you may wish to go with the "standard edition" (larger volume).

Review 2 for Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia, Compact Edition

This is an excellent book. The binding feels very solid, and the letters, though small, are very readable. Keep in mind that I'm pretty young, so age hasn't hurt my eyesight yet; perhaps it may be different for you.

This is 'the' standard for Biblical Hebrew. Ok, the introduction is not in English but the rest is awesome. Do not buy a softcover as the binding will not hold up. Get the hardcopy ONLY and enjoy it for life. I have had my hardcopy for over 20 years and it is still holding up.
