Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This comprehensive yet user-friendly primer acquaints readers with the Greek versions of the Old Testament. The second edition has been substantially revised, expanded, and updated to reflect major advances in Septuagint studies.

"Invitation proposes a full tour of Septuagint studies. All aspects of the ancient Greek version are explored, with extensive examples and discussion of scholarly approaches. The first edition, whose excellent reputation is entirely deserved, will be superseded by this second edition. This book merits a place in the library of anyone seriously interested in the study of the Bible."
--Jan Joosten, University of Oxford

"Since the first edition of Jobes and Silva's groundbreaking introduction, research on and interest in the Septuagint has increased dramatically. This new edition has incorporated the most up-to-date scholarship in the same informed and accessible style as the first. Kudos to the authors for so lucidly guiding their readers through the most recent developments in Septuagint studies. This volume should be on the shelf of all who are interested in this corpus, whether they are general readers or specialists."
--Benjamin G. Wright, Lehigh University

"Invitation is the best entry-level introduction to the burgeoning and complex field of Septuagint studies, bar none. In this second edition, the authors have clarified misunderstandings, responded to criticisms, thoroughly revised and updated the work, and added helpful material for using the Göttingen editions. It is a must for every student and scholar of the Septuagint."
--Peter J. Gentry, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Invitation to the Septuagint is a well-established standard work for students and specialists alike and one of the most valuable resources on Septuagint studies today. This second, expanded edition takes an already invaluable tool to its highest level as a comprehensive primer and a compendium of existing information. Marked by substantial revisions and valuable additions, it incorporates a large number of the most important developments since the first edition, making it not only an excellent tool for newcomers but also a prominent reference work for seasoned scholars on the history of Septuagint studies and on the current state of research in a rapidly expanding field of study."
--Gert J. Steyn, University of Pretoria
