In Amos, W. Edward Glenny provides a foundational analysis of the Greek text of the Septuagint version of Amos. The analysis is distinguished by the detailed yet comprehensive attention paid to the text. Glenny's analysis is a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Greek text that are frequently overlooked by standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Amos also reflects recent advances in scholarship on Greek grammar and linguistics and is informed by current discussions within Septuagint studies. These handbooks prove themselves indispensable tools for anyone committed to a deep reading of the Greek text of the Septuagint.
This handbook is an excellent help for understanding the Greek text, the textual history, and the questions of interpretation for the book of Amos. Edward Glenny’s explanations allow easy access to the Greek text as well as carrying on to deeper questions of the meaning and understanding of this important prophetical book.~Siegfried Kreuzer, Professor of Old Testament, Protestant University Wuppertal/Bethel
