[Reading] ➷ Invitation to the Septuagint By Karen H. Jobes – Tactical-player.co.uk

Invitation to the Septuagint Just chock full of specialiat information that is evenhanded and yet doesn t try to take on too much, often deferring to the mind boggling bibliographical recommendations to add in depth coverage should you desire that You re guaranteed to come away from this book with far knowledge about the Septuagint than you bargained for A caveat is that only the first part of the book is a cozy laid back read after that the book assumes knowledge of Koine and Hebrew Just so you know But don t let that stop you Especially of you re starting out learning those languages as I am it will come in handy later on, too. This Comprehensive Yet User Friendly Primer To The Septuagint LXX Acquaints Readers With The Greek Versions Of The Old Testament It Is Accessible To Students, Assuming No Prior Knowledge About The Septuagint, Yet Is Also Informative For Seasoned Scholars The Authors, Both Prominent Septuagint Scholars, Explore The History Of The LXX, The Various Versions Of It Available, And Its Importance For Biblical Studies This New Edition Has Been Substantially Revised, Expanded, And Updated To Reflect Major Advances In Septuagint Studies Appendixes Offer Helpful Reference Resources For Further Study Ohne etwas ber den Inhalt sagen zu wollen Die Druckqualit t bei dieser Auflage ist miserabel Sehr blasse Schrift auf gelblichem Papier Es ist zwar nur ein Taschenbuch, aber f r den Preis darf ich mehr Qualit t erwarten als bei einem Liebesroman vom W hltisch im Supermarkt. Excellent Make no mistake this is a college seminary textbook It is extremely well written and documented, just not for the casual reader Part of the problem is is that there is no such thing as THE Septuagint The Septuagint is actually a collection of works translated at different times by different people using different sources, and the sources are no longer available I think a better title would be Invitation to Septuagint minus the article This is a very good book for scholars, not so much for the rest of us. Lot s of great info here I didn t realize how complex the Septuagint was. Very good book a must for all ministers and bible students Such a useful resource
