The Bible Today
"This series will long remain a classic work, a storehouse of information, well-organized and carefully judged and nuanced. Every major biblical library should possess it."
"A tool that no Bible student can afford to ignore; it takes its place alongside Kittel as a classic reference work."
"The Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament is a monumental contribution to the study of the Old Testament, and very highly recommended. No library can afford to be without it."
American Reference Books Annual
"Students of the Bible have cause for rejoicing as each volume of this scholarly work appears. . . This 'theological dictionary' focuses on the etymology of Hebrew terms, then explores their cultural and historical contexts, finally suggesting their importance in a theological framework without espousing a particular denominational bias."
"An important and interesting scholastic tool, essential for any library that serves serious Bible students, theological scholars, church-school teachers, pastors, or interested laypeople."
Journal of the American Academy of Religion
"[TDOT] amasses a great deal of useful information (including bibliography) on the words dealt with, which most scholars would find difficult to ferret out on their own. . . Clearly, no serious exegete of the Old Testament should overlook it."
Southwestern Journal of Theology
"There is no finer tool available for someone who wants to know all about the meaning of a family of Hebrew words."
Catholic Library World
"Serious students of the Hebrew Bible are familiar with this indispensable research tool. . . This work is aimed at professional biblical scholars, but the English edition has incorporated features that enable readers without the linguistic background of these scholars to benefit from this dictionary. . . This work must be included in any reference library that serves serious students of the Hebrew Bible."
Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter
"This dictionary is highly recommended for academic libraries in institutions dealing with Biblical Studies, Judaism, Christianity, and Comparative Religion."
