Overview

A Thorough, Accessible Introduction to the Greek Translation of the Old Testament.

Most people think that the Septuagint—the Greek translation of the Hebrew Old Testament—is only for scholars. But understanding even the basics about the Septuagint is helpful for academics and laypeople alike.

In this book, scholars Gregory R. Lanier and William A. Ross examine what the Septuagint is and why Christians should care about it. By distilling the complexity surrounding the origin (who and where), translation philosophy, and transmission (history), the authors address not only how the church throughout history has viewed this text, but also its continued value for the study of the Old Testament and New Testament. Here is a book that serves as a springboard for anyone interested in knowing more about the Septuagint and its relationship to the Bible.
