Product Description

From the Back Cover

This book follows the theological word study of the Old Testament, but approaches the matter from a practical and less exhaustive viewpoint than the major studies.

About the Author

R. LAIRD HARRIS (1911-2008) (B.S., University of Delaware; M.A., University of Pennsylvania; Th.B. and Th.M., Westminster Theological Seminary; Ph.D., Dropsie University) served as Professor of Old Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary. Widely known and respected for his biblical scholarship, he completed significant work in the study of theology and science, particularly dealing with creation and evolution. Dr. Harris served as chairman of the Committee on Bible Translation which produced the New International Version. He is co-author of "Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament," and is the author of "The Inspiration and Canonicity of the Bible, Introductory Hebrew Grammar, " and "Man: God's Eternal Creation. "
GLEASON L. ARCHER, JR. (1916-2004), (B.A., M.A., Ph.D., Harvard University; B.D., Princeton Theological Seminary; L.L.B., Suffolk Law School) was a biblical scholar, theologian, educator, and author. He authored numerous books, including "In the Shadow of the Cross, The Epistle to the Hebrews: A Study Manual, and Survey of Old Testament Introduction." His instrumental work in the preparation of the Old Testament portion of the New American Standard Bible has gained wide acclaim and positioned him as a world-renowned scholar.
BRUCE WALTKE (B.A., Houghton College; Th.M. and Th.D., Dallas Theological Seminary; Ph.D., Harvard University) is a preeminent Old Testament scholar. His teaching appointments at Dallas Theological Seminary, Regent College, Knox Theological Seminary, and Reformed Theological Seminary Orlando, have earned him a reputation as a master teacher with a pastoral heart. Among his many books are "Genesis: A Commentary" and "An Old Testament Theology," both of which were awarded the Gold Medallion Book Award in Biblical reference works and commentaries by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. An autobiography of Bruce can be found in "Why I (Still) Believe," Byron and Lohr, eds. (Zondervan, 2015).

Format: Hardcover
The Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament is an invalluable tool if you want to get behind every word, (except names) of the old testament text. I use it extensively and have not been able to find it's equal. The information is easy to find because it uses the strongs numbering system. This work really lets the person of serious study grasp a clearer understanding of what the scripture is saying. No serious bible student/reader should be without it.

This two volume set is exhaustive tool for the serious Old Testament student. Conveniently cross referenced to Strong's Exhaustive Concordance numbers, it doesn't take long to find what you are looking for. No one denominational bent is emphasized so it is a good tool for all denominations of the Christian faith as well as a good tool for non-Christians.

HASH(0xa27ec420) out of 5 stars Satisfied for About 20 Years Using this Set 6 Jan. 2003
By Edward J. Vasicek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great set. I got it about 20 years ago when it first came out, and, as a pastor of over 23 years, I say "Go for it!" Although I do not refer to this work every week, it comes in handy when I need to do a Hebrew word study. Because it is cross-indexed with Strongs, you can find the Hebrew words (and their definitions/expansions) without knowing a stitch of Hebrew.

For practical ministry use, this is the set to get! It provides plenty of information, clear definitions, but does not get tedious (usually). I would recommend it over older studies which are not nearly as accurate (especially those done before the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in the 1940's).

HASH(0x9275e408) out of 5 stars Good, but too short to be useful 4 Jun. 2002
By Matthew F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a good Hebrew research tool. It's best feature is that it's only two volumes (compared to 11+ for the Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament!). The entries are short compared to other theological lexicons and wordbooks, however, and you don't get as much depth as you do in other theological lexicons.
If you're looking for slightly more than a lexicon, this is a great tool. But if you really want to study Hebrew words, their range of meanings, different usage, extra-Biblical usage, etc. try the 3 vol. Theological Lexicon of the Old Testament (Jenni, Westermann) or - for the best of the best - the Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament (11 vol completed, more to come).

HASH(0x92764b40) out of 5 stars A perfect blend of dictionary and commentary. 21 Mar. 2007
By A. Uittenbogaard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament offers the perfect blend of dictionary and commentary. Words are grouped by root and derivations. Meanings are distilled from their Biblical contexts, and when these are few, brief excursions into cognate languages or extra-Biblical texts augment the articles. A grid of numerical codes ties into the perennial Strong index, which is also used in other works, for instance Green's Interlinear Bible (Hebrew-English). This allows a beginning student, who lacks knowledge of the Hebrew language, access to the wealth of grace and wisdom that is inherent to Scriptures but often lost in translations.

TWOTOT shows the combined effort of its 46 contributors plus editorial board, and is specifically designed for use by "the busy pastor or earnest Christian worker." This is to result "in the edification of the church of Christ through the assistance it may give to her ministers and His servants."

To anyone who desires to achieve a deeper understanding the Bible, this wordbook is invaluable.
