The Septuagint is the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible and the scriptures read by early Christians. Septuagint studies have been a growth field in the past twenty years. It has become an area of interest not only for textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible but as a product of Judaism in the Graeco-Roman world. It is even being utilized occasionally by scholars of Greek religion. At the same time renewed interest in the daughter versions (Syriac, Vulgate, Ethiopic, Coptic etc.) has thrown new attention onto the Septuagint. This Companion provides a cutting-edge survey of scholarly opinion on the Septuagint text of each biblical book. It covers the characteristics of each Septuagint book, its translation features, origins, text-critical problems and history. As such it provides a comprehensive companion to the Septuagint, featuring contributions from experts in the field.

This is a Companion to dip into and enjoy especially if you too follow the Septuagint in reading the Old Testament ... Well worth having. * Theology * This valuable resource could be called a 'handbook', because it is a one-volume, book-by-book introduction to the Septuagint ... It contains a wealth of information for students of the Septuagint. It is concise yet thorough, scholarly yet reasonably priced, and every LXX scholar, as well as every Old Testament and New Testament scholar, should have a handbook like this in their library to consult as the first step when they have questions about books in the Septuagint. * Journal of Theological Studies * This Companion succeeds in offering its readers a useful tool to approach the Septuagint for the first time, summing up the key aspects of the texts, as well as the research methods adopted by researchers. * Adamantius (Bloomsbury translation) * Makes the Septuagint much more accessible to non-specialists...all the entries will prove helpful introductions to the translation styles and textual issues of the books in question. * Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly * This is just about everything one could wish for in a handbook. From beginning to end it is clear, up-to-date, wide-ranging, and authoritative. The format-detailed book-by-book introductions-is a much-needed convenience. * Dale Allison, Princeton Theological Seminary, USA * This volume fills a real gap in biblical scholarship, by characterizing the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible, book by book. Nothing like this has hitherto existed. This is a most useful book. * John J. Collins, Yale Divinity School, USA * This book will immediately establish itself as the first port of call for any serious Bible student and scholar wanting to have an informed introduction to each book in the Septuagint. Unlike with previous handbooks, each chapter is written by an expert on the subject, and the well-designed format ensures that all the main questions are described and addressed, with full bibliography as well. Careful editorial planning has resulted in a work which has no parallel in this field. * H. G. M. Williamson, University of Oxford, UK * This very useful companion to each of the Septuagint books, written by young and enthusiastic experts, provides up-to-date and thorough analyses. This handbook will enrich the future study of the Greek versions of the Hebrew Bible. * Emanuel Tov, Hebrew University, Jerusalem *
