Reviews - What do customers think about Theological Workbook Of The Old Testament?
A perfect blend of dictionary and commentary. Mar 21, 2007
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.
Satisfied for About 20 Years Using this Set Jan 6, 2003
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).
Good, but too short to be useful Jun 4, 2002
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).
Quick Review Jun 8, 2000
Discusses just about every theologically significant Hebrew word.
Easy to use and find your word in question.
Full of useful information!
What the Old Testment Really Means Jan 21, 2000
Well organized, this book is an important tool for all of us who study the Bible looking for understanding the relationship between the New and the Old Testments. It helps us a lot, because it teaches what God really wanted to say, revealing the real meaning of the words of the old escriptures. I like it very much and use it a lot because it has always an answer to my inner questions about the word of God. It is a book no Bible student should miss.
