Is there a reason for the discrepancy of book covers? An upcoming university course requires TWOT, 2003 version, which is the cover displayed on Logos.com and says "I already own this." But when I check my library, I see I own the 1980 version. The website also notes the book for sale is the 1980 version.  The wrong cover image can be confusing and lead someone to purchase the wrong book.

Is the updated version expected to come out any time soon?

As far as I know the 2003 version is just a reprint of the 1980 two volume edition.

From Amazon.com:

"The new edition of this monumental reference work combines two volumes into one, now making it even easier to use."

🤔 interesting! I ordered a used dead tree copy of the newer edition so I’ll have to do a comparison when it comes in next week.

From BestCommentaries.com:

"Reprint of former two volume edition, now combined into one volume."

And the 2019 Denver Seminary Old Testament Bibliography only mentions the 1980 edition of TWOT:  https://community.logos.com/forums/p/63727/1054823.aspx#1054823
