Septuaginta: A Reader’s Edition offers the complete text of the Greek Old Testament as it appears in the Rahlfs-Hanhart revised Septuaginta, laid out in a clear and readable format. All deuterocanonical books are included, as well as all double-texts, which are presented on facing pages for easy textual comparison. In order to facilitate natural and seamless reading of the text, every word occurring 100 times or fewer in the Rahlfs-Hanhart text (excluding proper names)—as well as every word that occurs more than 100 times in the Rahlfs-Hanhart text but fewer than 30 times in the Greek New Testament—is accompanied by a footnote that provides a contextual gloss for the word and (for verbs only) full parsing. Additionally, an appendix provides a complete alphabetized list of common vocabulary (namely, all the words that are not accompanied by a footnote), with glosses and (as applicable) comparison of a word’s usage in the Septuagint to its usage in the New Testament.
All of these combined features will make Septuaginta: A Reader’s Edition an indispensable resource for biblical scholars and an excellent tool for improving one’s comprehension of the Greek language. In addition to the attractive and high-quality binding, each volume will include two ribbon markers.

"Septuaginta: A Reader's Edition fills a gap in scholarly tools for Septuagint study. It is well designed and easy to use. The editors provide clear and appropriate glosses for less common words, and the inclusion of the Greek text eliminates the need for using multiple books. The appendix of common Septuagintal words, along with a comparison with New Testament usage, is an ideal point of access for New Testament students, facilitating their introduction to a different Greek corpus. This reader is an invaluable tool, and I would highly recommend it for my students and anyone wishing to read broadly in the Septuagint."

"At last a reader's edition of the Septuagint! Ross and Lanier have done a great service by producing this edition. A valuable resource for improving one's proficiency in Septuagint Greek. Anyone interested in reading the Septuagint at length will want to have this work."
- Karen H. Jobes, Gerald F. Hawthorne Professor Emerita of New Testament Greek & Exegesis, Wheaton College and Graduate School
"In this excellent resource prepared by Ross and Lanier, the text of the Septuagint is clearly laid out on the page with carefully chosen glosses for infrequent words in the notes at the bottom. It is presented in such a readable way that this will be the Greek Bible everyone should have on their desk."
- James K. Aitken, Reader in Hebrew and Early Jewish Studies, University of Cambridge
