I thought we weren't supposed to make fun of people's suggestions for resources.

I confess that at first glance I thought it looked kind of odd, that simply by arranging the English words of the KJV in alphabetical order you'd gain more understanding of the OT. But it does appear to be simply a quirky way of describing a combined dictionary/concordance.

Mind you, Michael, I'm not sure you're aware that the function of a concordance is already built in to Logos by definition so you don't need any digital concordances. And if you right-click on any English word in your KJV, you'll have access to all the Hebrew lexicons you might have in your Library where a single click will look up that word for you. This particular 1870 dictionary might still be one you want to add to your Library, but I'd also encourage you to get some of the more recent and scholarly Hebrew lexicons such as the Enhanced BDB (Brown-Driver-Briggs), HALOT (Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament), DBL Hebrew (Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains: Hebrew (Old Testament)); some theological lexicons such as NIDOTTE (New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis) and TLOT (Theological Lexicon of the Old Testament); and for simpler dictionary-type lookups, Enhanced Strong's Lexicon is fine and inexpensive.

Rosie you had no way of knowing this, but I have all of those resources.  My request was not based on the way in which the resource arranges its information, but rather the way Wilson brings nuance into his definitions.  It's kind of like an amplified concordance.  There are several things that I have found helpful in his writings and I don't want to pay $183 for the hard back.

Michael,

thanks for you suggestion (and more ;-) this sounds interesting. Maybe you can share an example of where Wilson gave you more help than the modern scholarship resources - this may help to drum up support for your request or convince the Logos product managers. I don't understand anything about Hebrew, but some others may find it helpful. Or a look into the pdf on archive.org allows those who understand this language to form an opinion.

Interestingly, there was a discussion about English-Greek dictionaries the other day.

Yes, this does look like something interesting to have in Logos. I'd buy it.

Peace!          *smile*

                                           Thanks, Mick, for the link!                         Yes, along with Rosie I'd love to buy this book.                It's a bit too "heavy" for a PB, methinks....       *smile*

That's a fascinating book. You could construct the equivalent of an OT Louw-Nida dictionary and LN interlinear tagging out of that data...

George, I wonder if you're regretting this remark now?  Stick out tongue
