Reviews

"Believe it or not, the study of the Greek translation of Isaiah is currently in turmoil! This affects our understanding of Isaiah, of the world in which the translation was undertaken, and of its importance as a central part of Scripture for the later emergence of the Christian religion. Wagner's is a work of careful and yet lucid scholarship that clarifies in a balanced manner the methods and the goals of this translator. It should be widely adopted." --H. G. M. Williamson, Regius Professor of Hebrew, University of Oxford "Wagner nimbly joins Umberto Eco's encyclopedia model of language with Descriptive Translation Studies in his analysis of particular passages. Whether one agrees with all the notes selected for this score, his study of Old Greek Isaiah reads like a symphony." --Ronald L. Troxel, Associate Professor, Department of Hebrew and Semitic Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison and author of LXX-Isaiah as Translation and Interpretation
