Jennifer Dines provides an introductory survey of current scholarship on the Greek Bible - the Septuagint. She outlines its origins in the third to first centuries BCE, going on to trace its subsequent history to the fifth century CE. The Septuagint's relationship with the standard Hebrew text and its translational characteristics are examined, as is its value as a collection with its own literary and exegetical character. The Septuagint is shown to be an important source for biblical studies (both Old and New Testament), to make a distinctive contribution to the history of biblical interpretation, and to be of considerable interest for understanding the early development of both Judaism and Christianity.

Jennifer Dines is Research Associate in the AHRB Parkes Centre Project, 'The Greek Bible in the Graeco-Roman World'. She is also a member of the Strasbourg-based team preparing the Amos volume of the 'Bible d'Alexandrie'.

'Dines is to be congratulated on producing a readable introduction to a complex field of study. Each chapter is followed by a page of further reading, which not only provides good advice on where to go next, it also acts as a guide to contemporary discussion. She is very even handed.' Steve Moyise, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, 27.5--Sanford Lakoff "Journal for the Study of the New Testament "
