The Septuagint as Christian Scripture


As with most everything Martin Hengel writes, this volume contains a treasure-trove of information. He makes some startling proposals here, and his inclusion of an essay by Robert Hanhart makes this almost a “two views” book. If you’ve ever wondered how the church fathers viewed the LXX, how they regarded the apocrypha, or why most Bible translations rely on the Hebrew rather than the Greek OT, this is a book that might interest you. You can read my review here.
