Old Testament, Hebrew Bible, Septuagint, etc.

ASKING THE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS: Which Old Testament? (Philip Jenkins, The Anxious Bench). This is a good summary of the issues, although I disagree that the term "Hebrew Bible" ... "suggests that it is a Jewish possession that Christians don’t fully or rightfully own." All it suggests is that it is written in the Hebrew language, which it is — apart from a few chapters and verses in Aramaic.
