Amanda MacInnis has proivided the most recent contribution to our blog tour of T. Michael Law’s When God Spoke Greek: The Septuagint and the Making of the Christian Bible. She reviewed Chapters 11 (God’s Word for the Church) and 12 (The Man of Steel and the Man Who Worshipped the Sun). In doing so, she seeks to answer these questions:
– Would this book work as a textbook for college students? Would this book work as a textbook for seminary students?
– Would this book have helped my studies as a student?-
– What are the theological implications of the NT authors quoting the Septuagint, especially when it differs from the Hebrew text?
– Would this book be helpful for teaching lay people in the church about the history of Scripture?
To see how she answers them read her full review here.
