See this pre-release offer for the revised and updated New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology & Exegesis.

Consisting of 5 volumes edited by Willem VanGemeren, NIDOTTE is indispensable for helping pastors, students, scholars, and serious lay persons grasp the full riches of the Bible. Thousands of entries deepen your understanding of the context and meanings of words and concepts in the Old Testament, and their relationship to words in the New Testament.

Only one hermeneutical text published prior to the New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology & Exegesis can be held up reasonably to its measure of quality and the exhaustive nature of the research that produced this immense work. That singular collection worthy of comparison is its counterpart, the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology, edited by Colin Brown. This 5-volume addition to that acclaimed work, though intimidating in the achievement it embodies, is intended for serious Old Testament and exegetical study by men and women of all walks of life -- both academics and pastors, students and laypersons.

Volume one contains a Guide to Old Testament Theology and Exegesis in which ten essays have been compiled to thoroughly explain proper hermeneutics and interpretation, as well as guidelines for using this source material. Volumes one through four contain the Lexicon of the Old Testament, all words found in the text ordered by Hebrew alphabetization for easy reference, and coupled with a Goodrick / Kohlenberger cross-referencing number to be used in conjunction with Strong’s numbering system. The relationship of each word in different contexts and languages is also explained, including alternative words, and the particulars of their semantic domain. All this information is, of course, complete with bibliography. Volume four also begins the Topical Dictionary. Therein can be found articles on the theology of each Old Testament book individually, as well as discussion of biblical concepts, people, places, events, and literary pieces, all information that is cross-referenced to the preceding Hebraic Lexicon. Finally, volume five contains a series of indexes: Hebrew Index, Scripture Index, Subject Index, and an index of Semantic Fields. Taken as a whole, the New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology & Exegesis is an unparalleled accomplishment in the field of biblical hermeneutics.

The New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology an Exegesis (NIDOTE) is, as the title says, a theological lexicon. The other theological lexicon available in Accordance is the Theological Word Book of the Old Testament. Of the two, the NIDOTE is a much stronger, up-to-date resource.
One of the strengths of NIDOTE is the introductory material provided. The articles range from introductions to hermeneutics; the reliability of the Old Testament texts; interpretation and theology; semantics and the canon of the OT. These are very extensive articles worth the price of the lexicon alone.
The lexicon also includes a very helpful Index of Semantic Fields by English words. Since the OT does not have anything similar to the Louw Nida for the NT; this can be a very helpful index.
The lexical articles themselves cover Hebrew word use in the ANE and OT as well as a bibliography after most entries. The references to texts are not as exhaustive as HALOT, but this lexicon i ...

The lexical articles themselves cover Hebrew word use in the ANE and OT as well as a bibliography after most entries. The references to texts are not as exhaustive as HALOT, but this lexicon is really complimentary to that lexicon given the difference in focus.
The Lexicon is very accessible to the layperson as well as the student and scholar. Accordance just released an abridged version of the New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology, so there may be an abridged, and less expensive version of this lexicon coming available as well. If you are not interested in the more exhaustive version you may want to call and see before ordering. Either way, this is a very valuable tool for OT studies.
