Jim West Reviews Hosea: A Commentary based on Hosea in Codex Vaticanus

I previously mentioned a commentary on the text of Hosea in Codex Vaticanus (see here). Lawrence Schiffman, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at Yeshiva University, has posted a review by Jim West here. An excerpt:

The Septuagint is an edition of the Bible in its own right and here it is treated with the grand respect it richly and rightly deserves. Glenny does a stellar job in allowing readers of LXX Hosea to hear the voice of the text itself without the Hebrew edition constantly whispering in the reader’s ear.
