For busy yet serious students of the Old Testament
This extensive scholarly work includes discussions of every Hebrew word of theological significance in the Old Testament, plus brief definitions of all other words found in the Brown-Driver-Briggs (BDB) Hebrew Lexicon. Keyed to Strongs Concordance, the Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament has been a longtime favorite of serious students of the Biblepastors and laypeople alike. The busy pastor or earnest Christian worker who has neither the time nor the background for detailed technical study, yet desires to understand important terms, will enjoy this practical resource.
There are more than 1,400 articles written by 43 Old Testament scholars, plus some 400 sub-entries giving definitions only. The articles focus on theological meanings of importance and do not include lengthy, technical, linguistic discussions. Virtually exhaustive bibliographies of published material relating to the words discussed are also included, as is a special section of Aramaic words used in the Old Testament.
The new edition of this monumental reference work combines two volumes into one, now making it even easier to use.
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).

David KilpatrickNorth Syracuse, NYAge: 45-54Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Great resource for Quick ReferenceApril 25, 2011David KilpatrickNorth Syracuse, NYAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I've have had the original 2 volume set since 1984 when I took Hebrew. This and Holladay's lexicon are an unbeatable combination in terms of price, ease of use, and helpfulness.
If you have this, you probably do not need to get the Brown-Driver-Briggs (BDB) lexicon because this uses the definitions from BDB as the basis for their further word study. Not every word gets extensive treatment, but many do. TWOT goes well beyond what a lexicon can do in terms of giving you information about the word's usage in the OT, so don't think all you need is a lexicon.
TWOT's biggest advantage is also its biggest disadvantage. Compared to comparable works (Theological Dictionary of the OT, Theological Lexicon of the OT, New International Dictionary of OT Theology and Exegesis), this generally provides briefer articles that give you quicker answers about general word usages.
But this relative brevity is also a disadvantage when you want to get more in-depth information about a word's usage. I often feel quite satisfied with the treatment given in TWOT, but also, there are times I wish it had more depth.
Again, if you are learning Hebrew, the combination of TWOT and the Holladay lexicon will serve you well.
