Product Description

The first five books of the Bible begin the story of salvation, so a working knowledge of the Torah is essential! In this accessible yet sophisticated thumb indexed guide, Schnittjer navigates the challenges of biblical narration and focuses on how the Pentateuch undergirds the gospel message. Each chapter includes the following: tips and tools for getting started, questions that focus on key issues Key terms to look for, outlines and summaries of the material, an interactive workshop, challenge questions drawn from the chapter and biblical text, advanced questions for those who want deeper exploration of biblical contexts, language, and exegetical or theological issues, research project suggestions, and, in selected chapters, discussion activities using films to engage the biblical narrative.

Publisher's Description

Working knowledge of the Torah is essential for every serious student of the Scriptures. Written in an engaging and accessible voice, even while digging into difficult and complicated matters at a sophisticated level, The Torah Story emphasizes the content of the text itself, moving beyond debating dates and theories of authorship into understanding how these five key books of the Bible help us understand the story of salvation. Providing flexible options for further study, each chapter includes the following: • Tips and tools for getting started • Questions that focus on key issues Key terms to look for • Outlines and summaries of the material • An interactive workshop designed for students, individuals, or study groups • Challenge questions drawn from the chapter and biblical text • Advanced questions for those who want deeper exploration of biblical contexts, language, and exegetical or theological issues • Research project suggestions • Discussion activities using films to engage the biblical narrative (selected chapters) A refreshingly new approach to the Torah—neither an introduction nor a commentary—The Torah Story provides a model of how to read Scripture intertextually. It leaves no doubt as to the overarching unity of the message and composition of the Pentateuch.

    I highly recommend this book to any biblical student. This book provides an unparalleled look at the macro-structure of the Pentateuch as both individual books and as a canonically connected whole. I never saw so many important connections! The emphasis on the understanding of the original audience and the highlighting of difficult passages was also very helpful. I had the privilege of studying under the author of this book and can all the more highly recommend this book because of his personal character.

    Not an easy read, however, if you're willing to take your time and really let the material sink in, it's a really good book to read. The knowlege that can be gained is wonderful

    A really nice book full of charts and a beautiful layout. This is a great beginners book on the introdution to the Torah. It is written in fluid language that is not to technical yet remains a deep study into the Torah. Full of reasearch material and questions this book in my opinion is worth picking up. It has helped me understand some of the difficulties I have had in understanding the Torah
