I thought this has been asked before, but cannot find the post.  I am wondering what the differences are between these two resources.  I know, or would assume the TDOT is more exhaustive?  And the VanGemeren's would be more conservative?  But please, any input here would be great.  Thanks.

TDOT is also more expensive than NIDOTTE

TDOT (Botterweck, et al) => Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament (TDOT) (15 vols.)

NIDOTTE (VanGemeren) => New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis (5 vols.)

It's too bad that Logos could not have the sale on TDOT that is going on elsewhere. A competitor has it for $149.99.

Wow.  I wonder how they are able to sell it so cheap.

I agree. I'd buy it in logos for $149.  WordSearch isn't the best Bible software out there so maybe they get it because the publisher feels bad for them?

I saw this today and bought it right away: https://www.logos.com/product/5465/new-international-dictionary-of-old-testament-theology-and-exegesis 

Then I recalled this thread and started to wonder whether something is wrong. The NT counterpart is is also on sale https://www.logos.com/product/45403/new-international-dictionary-of-new-testament-theology-and-exegesis but the combined is not https://www.logos.com/product/129798/new-international-dictionary-of-theology-and-exegesis-old-and-new-testament

I couldn't resist myself at that price for NIDOTTE even if I don't do Hebrew...

I don't think something is wrong, or more wrong than usual, as this is just the way it is with this publisher's products (no dynamic pricing on the bundles either). But Logos will recognize that you own the bundle if you bought both parts.

Yes, that's my situation.

Both NIDOTTE and NIDNTTE are on sale, I have both and they are great resources. Even better since they are on sale!

And yet another "silent" Zondervan sale from Logos. Like everyone else ,I always find out about these Zondervan sales from Accordance and WS and then check to see if they are on sale with Logos, which is pretty poor business from Logos IMHO.

The sale ends tomorrow (Feb 14th) with the competition, so I would imagine the same will apply to Logos

Yeah I am not sure why that is either

So, I got TDOT... what would I gain by getting the VanGemeren/DeSilva set?
