|Jesuit scholar and Oxford lecturer Nicholas King|
Which makes it timely to put in another plug for the most readable, contemporary English translation of the LXX available on the planet, Nicholas King's amazing four-volume study bible opus, which has now appeared (since November last year) in a single volume, published in the UK by Kevin Mayhew. In his great book, When God Spoke Greek, Timothy Michael Law wrote:
Although NETS has usefully been published in a single volume and is now indispensable for the scholarly study of the Septuagint (and is therefore highly recommended for students and academics), we must continue to wait for a translation of the Septuagint that would appeal to nonspecialist readers of the Bible. (p.8)And now we have it.
