“A tool that no Bible student can afford to ignore; it takes its place alongside Kittel as a classic reference work.”
— Christianity Today
“This is the standard reference tool in OT studies for in-depth word studies, and it undoubtedly will remain so for decades. It is well conceived and well executed in the main. . . . For its scope, depth and erudition, TDOT remains indispensable for any in-depth study of Hebrew words and word fields.”
— Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
“An excellent instrument of work for professors, pastors, preachers, and students. There is nothing currently available that gives the non-technical reader valuable insights into the meanings of such words of the Hebrew Bible such as this dictionary.”
— Catholic Library World
“This dictionary is highly recommended for academic libraries in institutions dealing with Biblical Studies, Judaism, Christianity, and Comparative Religion.”
— Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter
“Highly recommended for all libraries in religion, theology, and biblical studies.”
— Religious Studies Review
“Once in a great while a Bible study resource comes along that meets genuine need but also sets the standard by the breadth of its scholarship. This is such a volume in such a set. . . . At last, an expensive book which is well worth the price.”
— Southwestern Journal of Theology
“An invaluable series.”
— The Bible Today
“An important and interesting scholastic tool, essential for any library that serves serious Bible students, theological scholars, church-school teachers, pastors, or interested laypeople.”
— Choice
“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.”
— American Reference Books Annual
“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.”
— Hebrew Studies
