I’m excited to announce this morning my newest book that will hit shelves in early November: The Septuagint: What It Is and Why It Matters, which is being published with Crossway. It’s great to see this project come to fruition. Here are the details.
Long-time readers of my blog won’t be all that surprised to see that I co-wrote this book with my colleague, fellow-Cantabridgian, and New Testament alter ego Gregory R. Lanier, who is a professor at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando. Greg and I have worked on a number of projects together at this point, all of which relate to the Septuagint. Perhaps the best known is our Septuaginta: A Reader’s Edition (Hendrickson 2018), which was followed by our Book-by-Book Guide to Septuagint Vocabulary (Hendrickson 2019). (Yes, other projects are in the works, but let’s stay focused on the latest one!) (more…)
I am thrilled to announce a new book that I’ve been working on for the past several years, the T&T Clark Handbook of Septuagint Research, which I have co-edited with W. Edward Glenny (U. Northwestern–St. Paul). We’re thrilled to have worked with a wonderful slate of some of the world’s leading scholars in Septuagint studies to produce a handbook designed to present cutting-edge research in the discipline beyond the introductory level.

I am very excited to announce a new book that I’ve produced with my partner in crime, Greg Lanier: A Book-by-Book Guide to Septuagint Vocabulary (Hendrickson 2019). The volume is set to release in December, but it is currently available for pre-order (click on the image).
As many readers will know, while we were both involved in our doctoral research at Cambridge, Greg and I teamed up to produce Septuaginta: A Reader’s Edition (Hendrickson 2018). That project has seen a lot of success now that it’s in the hands of Greek-lovers everywhere. But it wasn’t too long after the manuscript was finished for the Reader’s Edition that Greg and I got to work on this new project, the Book-by-Book Guide. The basic idea is pretty simple, but (we hope) very powerful. (more…)
