The Pentateuch--Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy--are the vital first books in the Bible. Understanding the scope, meaning, and events of these five books is integral to understanding the whole of Scripture that follows.
Old Testament expert Herbert Wolf provides layreaders and scholars alike with a strong undergirding of understanding and knowledge in this introduction that reveals both the seriousness and excitement of the Pentateuch. Readers will find Adam, Abraham, Joseph, Moses and Joshua in these pages, as well as terrible sin and glorious forgiveness, bloody sacrifices and battles, deadly betrayal and life-giving hope.
Wolf first addresses the overarching themes that flow through the Pentateuch, with special attention given to Moses as author of the five books. He then addresses each book specifically, covering topics such as purpose and scope, and literary structure. He tailors additional study to each specific book. This book contributes significantly to a clear, deep understanding of the Bible's first five books.
R. Greene4 Stars Out Of 5January 1, 2009R. GreeneWolf has authored a very well written study on the Pentateuch. This was the textbook used in Bible College class. He handles the literary, historical and apologetics of the Books properly. There was good insights offered on more prominent passages. This book is written technically without being so scholarly as to limited the ability and enjoyment of reading of Moses' works. A very good start on studying the Pentateuch.
