This morning Joel Watts launched our book blog tour for T. Michael Law’s When God Spoke Greek: The Septuagint and the Making of the Christian Bible. He was responsible for commenting on the first two chapters (Ch. 1 Why this Book? and Ch.2 When the World Became Greek), which introduce the rest of the book. Watts praises the book saying:
It is refreshing to see such a book. It lacks a theological agenda, but places the Septuagint at the front of Christian theology. It is because of the Septuagint Christians could developed their theology in such as a way as it did. Further, we in the West tend to forget the East (Orthodox) still use the Septuagint as their biblical text. T. Michael Law writes with the ease of a well polished author and the skill of an academic. His prose is remarkable in that it delivers the needed punch without making the reader go round after round trying to figure out what he is saying.
