Book Announcement: Into the Deep

14502974_10154665372387566_6116061148018358024_nI’m excited to let you know that my Masters of Theology thesis Into the Deep: A Comparative Discourse Analysis of the Masoretic and Septuagint Versions of Jonah has been published by GlossaHouse. You can get it at a very reasonable price—only $15.99. Here’s a description provided for the work:

This study of Jonah utilizes discourse analysis to draw out both major and minor differences between the Greek (Septuagint) and Hebrew text forms of this ancient work. Specifically, it places emphasis on intentional and/or unintentional translational differences that have influenced Jonah’s meaning and rhetoric. Into the Deep explores and exposes numerous difficulties encountered when translating literature, such as the prospect of altering a text’s unique characteristics. Insofar as all translation is an act of interpretation, Into the Deep also impresses upon the reader the enduring value of early translations as primitive commentaries.

Help feed my family by picking up a couple volumes. After all, who needs just one copy?
