Product Description

Exploring the Old Testament: A Guide to the Pentateuch offers a clear overview of the "five books of Moses," as well as an introduction to the historical and textual questions that modern scholarship has posed and the answers it has proposed. In this volume from the Exploring the Bible Series, renowned Pentateuch expert and author Gordon J. Wenham offers students a critically informed, textually sensitive introduction to the Pentateuch that explores and explains:

  • the basic features of the Pentateuch
  • the social world of the Bible
  • the latest scholarship on the composition of the Pentateuch
  • literary techniques and forms
  • theme, composition and rhetorical function of the Pentateuch

In this textbook, you will find double-column formatting for ease of use, annotated bibliographies for further reading, sidebar explorations of select historical and textual topics in greater detail, a glossary of terms, and relevant charts and maps.

Editorial Reviews

"An excellent stepping-stone into the world of the Pentateuch."
"This is a very readable introduction by one of the leading evangelical scholars currently working on the Pentateuch. Since this section of Scripture presents concepts and characters foundational for all that follows, this is a very important volume indeed."
"Gordon Wenham offers a masterly overview of the Pentateuch, then presents and unpacks its problems clearly and fairly. He leads the reader to appreciate both its narratives and its laws, their significance for ancient Israel and their treatment by modern scholars. With his deep perception and respect for Scripture, he has created an outstanding introduction."
