In the latest edition to the Handbooks for Old Testament Exegesis series, Peter T. Vogt continues the tradition of excelleance established by previous volumes. Divided into three parts, Interpreting the Pentateuch first provides an overview of the major themes of the Pentateuch. In the second part, Vogt offers resources and strategies for interpreting and understanding these books by exploring their genres-law and narrative. Finally, Vogt shows that, although it is a collection of ancient texts, the Pentateuch has contemporary significance. He illustrates techniques for effective exegesis by including two start-to-finish examples, one from each genre.
