NETSRBL has posted a review by Wolfgang Kraus of the New English Translation of the Septuagint. For those of you who haven’t heard yet, NETS is now available online for download in its final published form.

Pietersma, Albert and Benjamin G. Wright III, editors. A New English Translation of the Septuagint and the Other Greek Translations Traditionally Included Under That Title. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2007. 0195289757, 9780195289756.

Kraus is quite favourable towards NETS overall and concludes with “One must explicitly thank Al Pietersma, the spiritus rector of NETS, for the translation itself, the discussion about translation theory triggered by it, and numerous single pieces of research.” I read through the NETS translation of Exodus for a class I took with Dr. Hiebert and my wife read through Psalms for another class and we both appreciated the translation. Now if only Oxford and Logos would work things out and make it available in Libronix.
