    The Septuagint is arguably the most significant interpretive window into both the Old Testament and the New. It possesses a rich history in arena biblical studies and interest in its usefulness is only growing. However, for students that lack prior exposure to the Septuagint, the complexity of the current scholarly trends therein can be somewhat overwhelming. Invitation to the Septuagint by Karen H. Jobes and Moises Silva has bridged this gap with a comprehensive introduction that is both informative and user-friendly.

    Invitation to the Septuagint appropriately begins with a brief introduction that details the use of the Septuagint in the academic context of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Scriptures. Readers will exit this introduction with an established understanding and framework for the pages that follow. The book is divided into three major sections: (1) The History of the Septuagint, (2) The Septuagint in Biblical Studies, and (3) The Current State of Septuagint Studies. The most helpful sections for most readers will be the former two sections. Lastly, there are a number of useful appendixes, such as a glossary, and a list of differences in versification between English versions and the Septuagint.

    The second edition of Invitation to the Septuagint has been revised, updated, and significantly expanded to meet the changing needs of the reader since the first edition. The entirety of this volume demands the attention of serious students, but there are also a few noteworthy chapters to highlight here. The two chapters that I found most beneficial, especially after working through the history and language of the Septuagint, were the chapters on the Septuagint for the textual criticism of the Old Testament and the Septuagint and the New Testament. These two chapters displayed the immediate benefit of the Septuagint within biblical studies. The appendixes are likewise worth mention, as they do well in providing both reference and direction for further study.

    Invitation to the Septuagint by Karen H. Jobes and Moises Silva has provided both students and scholars with a much needed second edition of their well-received introduction to the Septuagint. Septuagint studies are notoriously complex, but Jobes and Silva have helpfully distilled the need-to-know information and packaged it in a comprehensive, informative, and user-friendly volume. If you are looking for a reliable and accessible source that will provide a helpful reference point without disregarding the necessary nuts and bolts of the Septuagint, Invitation to the Septuagint is by far the best available option. It is a book should be read by anyone interested in biblical studies and consulted often. It comes highly recommended.

    I received a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
