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
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).

In its favor, it contains all words used in the Hebrew Old Testament and can be used like a standard lexicon. There is an article on each word with theological significance, and bibliography at the end of each article. Otherwise, basic definitions are given. I did find something very helpful. I found and downloaded a Hebrew New Testament in PDF. I was surprised by some word choices the translators used. Brown-Driver-Briggs gave no explanation for a use that was beyond the meaning I had learned. But, this Wordbook added a comment about the use of a particular word in post-biblical Hebrew that explained the whole matter.
A slight disappointment is that information in the articles could often be found by checking all occurrences of a word through an electronic Bible program. I was hoping for the inclusion of some etymological information like that given in the Gesenius lexicon linked to a Bible program I have on my iPad.
Still, I am finding it useful. I did a study of the Lord's Prayer with the assumption that concepts in it would have roots in the Old Testament. Although comments in this volume are short, I now have a much fuller appreciation for the Lord's Prayer and its meaning. There is a lot more grace in the Prayer by virtue of the vocabulary used.
This Wordbook assigns a number to each Hebrew word. I assumed these are Strong's Numbers, but they are not. They seem to be a system of Hebrew root numbers developed by the authors, but have no application to other resources.
