orion book announcement


Baker Book House announces the publication of Takamitsu Muraoka's
*Hebrew/Aramaic Index to the Septuagint*. Muraoka critically examines all
of the Hebrew-Greek and Aramaic-Greek equivalences assigned by the
Hatch-Redpath *Concordance to the Septuagint*, particularly with an eye
toward lexicographic and text-critical advancements in the study of both
the Septuagint and the Hebrew Bible in the last century. Instead of viewing
merely a list of page/column references, as in Hatch-Redpath's original
Hebrew index, users can see at a glance a complete listing of the Greek
equivalents for every Hebrew and Aramaic term in the Hebrew Bible, Sirach,
and I Esdras.

For a full explanation of the index, see Muraoka's article "A New Index to
Hatch and Redpath" in *Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses* 73.4 (Dec.
1997) 257-276.

The 160-page index sells for $19.99 until July 1, when the price increases
to $24.99. The index is also printed in Baker's new edition of
Hatch-Redpath's *Concordance to the Septuagint* (retail $125.00).
