December 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.
