About This Book
This work contributes to the growing body of work on the Septuagint and specifically to the book of Jeremiah and in turn critiques and evaluates the work that has grown up around the Greek translation. Soderlund focuses specifically on chapter 29 as, he argues, this chapter epitomizes the issues and concerns of the text as a whole. The examination of the inner-Greek critical problem can be plentifully analysed in this chapter, while the oracles against the Philistines and Edom are representative of the important textual decisions relevant to this book. Thus does Soderlund include a history of the Greek Text of Jeremiah as well as an in-depth analysis of the methodology in Jeremiah in this careful and systematic work.
