Two New Greek-Related Books Coming from Baker Academic

March 23, 2015

Invitation to the Septuagint 2nd EdDecember 1 is a long way away. But it’s the release date for two Baker Academic books I’m looking forward to checking out. (HT: Cliff Kvidahl.)

 

1. Going Deeper with Biblical Greek: Reading the New Testament with Fluency and Devotion, by Rodney A. Whitacre

From what I can tell, Whitacre explains lectio divina… using the Greek text. I had never even considered the possibility, but it sounds amazing.

 

2. Invitation to the Septuagint (Second Edition), by Karen H. Jobes and Moisés Silva

Jobes and Silva update and revise their classic work in Septuagint studies.

I’ll do what I can to report more on each of these books when they arrive. They are both volumes to eagerly await.

    Good stuff! I need to read more to sharpen my Greek!

    The LXX has become more significant to me in recent years. It seems to reflect an earlier version of the Hebrew Bible than the much later Masoretic Text. I no longer feel that I can give any Old Testament passage it’s due unless I look at both the Hebrew and Greek.

    Ha! That gives me an idea… I think I’m going to have to have an LXX-themed 70th b-day party. Consider this an early invite.

      Hmmm…since I’m older than you, I’ll be there if I can make it…
