For more than twenty years, Victor Hamilton's handbook has been introducing students to the Pentateuch. In this substantially revised second edition, Hamilton moves chapter by chapter (rather than verse by verse) through the Pentateuch. He examines the content, structure, and theology and provides useful commentary on overarching themes and connections between Old Testament texts. For those who wish to do additional research, each chapter is appended with a bibliography of recent, relevant scholarship.
In this introduction to the first five books of the Old Testament, Victor Hamilton moves chapter by chapter--rather than verse by verse--through the Pentateuch, examining the content, structure, and theology. Each chapter deals with a major thematic unit of the Pentateuch, and Hamilton provides useful commentary on overarching themes and connections between Old Testament texts.
This second edition has been substantially revised and updated. The first edition sold over sixty thousand copies.
