GailForce4 Stars Out Of 5Good To HaveFebruary 2, 2021GailForceQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I am excited to have a copy of the Septuagint. The only problem is the writing is too small for me. But, overall, I am happy to have one. I find myself reading it other than the old Testament of the KJV.
Alexander5 Stars Out Of 5Perfect for today, never was supersededOctober 11, 2018AlexanderQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This version is absolutely fine for today. It is not "superseded" by any other version. Just because it was translated in the 19th century does not mean it is inferior to "modern" translations. This version is a corner stone for studying the LXX. It was made in a time when people had fear of God, and did not promote degeneracy. Look at the apostasy of the USA and Europe. Modern "theologians" and "scholars" are a disgrace to Christianity. Christianity is at the darkest hour in it's history. There are blasphemers and hypocrites in Christianity today everywhere; most so called "Doctors of Divinity" are Doctors of Damnation. I'd rather have a translation by one person who lived in 1851, than have a translation by "a broad range of today's LXX scholars" who are quite possibly the reason the U.S.A is diving headlong into divine disciple with destruction, and the world into the 7 years of Tribulation. The book quality is great and paper is fine.
David deSilvaAshland, OHAge: 45-54Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Great for its time, but supersededMay 27, 2018David deSilvaAshland, OHAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 5I loved my BRenton's LXX as much as the next Greek geek when I was in seminary back in 1987-1990, but it is now second best if you're serious about studying the Greek Old Testament. Textual criticism of the LXX has come a long way in 170 years, as has Greek lexicography. I use the LXX all the time in my own work, but I rely on Rahlfs for the Greek text (first published in 1931 but recently revised) and heartily endorse the 2007 New English Translation of the Septuagint -- a translation undertaken by a broad range of today's LXX scholars. At the very least, PLEASE avail yourselves of the free web-based version of the latter alongside the older Brenton translation.
