Strength to Strength welcomes Adam Boyd to discuss the selection of Old Testament text sources.

In light of the increased attention the Septuagint has received in recent years, Adam will discuss what role the Septuagint should have in translating the Old Testament into English and other languages, including whether or not it should replace the Masoretic Text as the primary source text for translation.

An interactive question-and-answer period follows.
