Product Description

In A Theological Introduction to the Pentateuch: Interpreting the Torah as Christian Scripture, a team of fresh voices in Old Testament scholarship explores the theological dimensions of the Pentateuch and provides specific examples of theological interpretation in conversation with the church's tradition while remaining actively engaged in academic debate.

This text on the Pentateuch is unique in that it emphasizes theological reading, serving as an economically savvy supplement to traditional introductory Pentateuch texts. Each chapter introduces theological themes and issues in interpretation then offers exegesis of one or two representative passages to model theological interpretation in practice. The methodological impetus for this book is derived from Walter Mobley, a leading scholar of the last generation.

This useful text will be valued by Christian students of the Old Testament whose aim is to understand the Pentateuch both as a document of faith and as a document of unique historical literature. Each book of the Pentateuch is considered in its own right with both its individual theological themes highlighted as well as those themes which reach across the entire Pentateuch.

Author Bio

Richard S. Briggs (PhD, University of Nottingham) is director of biblical studies and hermeneutics at Cranmer Hall, St. John's College, University of Durham in Durham, England. He is the author of several books. Joel N. Lohr (PhD, University of Durham) is university chaplain and director of religious life at the University of the Pacific.

Endorsements

Briggs and Lohr, along with their cowriters, have exploited the inheritance of their teacher Walter Moberly to engage with the best of historical-critical and literary approaches to each book of the Pentateuch. Both for the general landscape of theological perspectives on each book and for the exemplary exploration of a specific text (or two) in each book, this volume provides an essential introduction to the field of theological interpretation at the beginning of the Bible.
-Richard S. Hess,
Earl S. Kalland Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages, Denver Seminary

It is extraordinary how theological interpretation has become a growth industry and has almost become a respectable enterprise--and certainly now a confident one. This is an urbane introduction to its nature, a suggestive theological introduction to each of the books of the Pentateuch. It matches the urbane elegance of Walter Moberly, who inspired it among colleagues and former students. Like Moberly's work, A Theological Introduction to the Pentateuch takes up big theological issues but anchors them in careful, detailed studies of particular passages. It thus illuminates on the macro scale and on the micro scale.
-John Goldingay,
David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament, Fuller Theological Seminary

A Theological Introduction to the Pentateuch is a well-proportioned and substantive introduction to the first five books of the Bible with hermeneutical guidance in the form of sample interpretation of key texts for each book. The book is nicely designed and executed--a valuable text for the classroom. It serves as an excellent tribute to Walter Moberly and his own exegetical work. Well done!
-Christopher R. Seitz,
research professor of biblical interpretation, Wycliffe College, University of Toronto

Few portions of Scripture seem to yield such an unending discovery of riches and resources to scholar and layperson alike as do the five books of the Pentateuch. The essays in this volume add richly and discerningly to those discoveries. Happily, each writer moves beyond the necessary historical and literary questions in order to engage the text theologically. I highly recommend this volume of collected essays to any reader who is interested in pursuing theological interpretation of the biblical text.
-Victor P. Hamilton,
professor emeritus of Old Testament studies, Asbury University

A penetrating primer on what it means to read the Pentateuch well as 'theologically interested interpreters'--and a lovely tribute to the probing insight and pedagogical skill of Walter Moberly by some of his former students and close associates. The authors offer full coverage of all five pentateuchal books along with sustained engagements of several key texts. The volume concludes with an appendix detailing the cumulative scope of Moberly's distinctive contributions to pentateuchal study.
-Stephen B. Chapman,
associate professor of Old Testament, Duke University
