"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."
Robin3 Stars Out Of 5Exploring the Old Testament: A Guide to the PentateuchOctober 22, 2016RobinQuality: 3Value: 1Meets Expectations: 3The new edition published this year 2016, is exactly like the one that Gordon Wenham published in 2003, with the exception of the front cover. Do not spend the extra money for the 2016 edition if there is a 2003 edition available.
It is well written.
