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.

Author Bio

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."

    The 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.

    Exploring the Old Testament Volumes 1 and 4 are required reading for my college course in Christian Theology. We have not yet begun to study out of Volume 4, but I have found Volume 1 to be extremely helpful in explaining why certain things were done in the OT Law. I would recommend them to anyone who would like to gain a deeper knowledge of God's Word.
