Volume one of The Book of Isaiah according to the Septuagint (Codex Alexandrinus) contains a concise introduction to the history of the Septuagint before providing parallel English translations of Isaiah from the Hebrew and the Greek texts. The side-by-side translations make for easy comparison, and Ottley provides helpful notes on each page.
With the Logos edition, all Scripture passages are tagged and appear on mouse-over. What’s more, Scripture references link to a wealth of language resources in your digital library. This makes the texts more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or personal Bible study. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “Alexandria,” or “kingdom.”
