Introductions to the Septuagint
The following three reviews are heavy on summary (a few pages) and light on critique/response (about a page). I realize this is not the balance many people like to see in a review, but that is what I was asked to do with these three. If you are considering whether or not you should buy one of these books and/or you want more info concerning what exactly the authors discuss, please, have a read.
