Upcoming Blog Tour: When God Spoke Greek

Brian Le Port and Abram Kielsmeier-Jones blogged about a blog tour that I’ll also be participating in, and so I will simply quote Abram here:

…I’ll be joining a group of bloggers in reviewing Timothy Michael Law‘s forthcoming When God Spoke Greek: The Septuagint and the Making of the Christian Bible.

Brian LePort at Near Emmaus is hosting. Here is the schedule for the tour:

14 A Postscript

There still (shocking!) aren’t that many books about the Septuagint, so I’m sure this will be a welcome addition. Law writes on his blog, “I shall not rest until there is a Septuagint in the hand of every woman, man, girl and boy.”
