Dines, Septuagint Reviewed in RBL

20th June 2005

Jim West over at Biblical Theology Blog noted some of the Hebrew Bible books in the latest Review of Biblical Literature, though he missed noting a significant book on the Septuagint:

Jennifer Dines, The Septuagint (T & T Clark, 2004).

Reviewed by Frank Shaw

This volume by Dines is the most recent introduction published on the LXX. It is geared to more advanced students than Jobes and Silva’s Invitation to the Seputagint and has the added advantage of being able to interact with their work as well as Fernendez Marcos’s The Septuagint in Context: Introduction to the Greek Version of the Bible.

For more discussion of these and other works on the Septuagint, see my Resources Relating to the LXX page.
