The PentateuchGenesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomyare the vital first books in the Bible. Understanding their scope, meaning, and events is integral to understanding the whole of Scripture.
In An Introduction to the Old Testament Pentateuch, Old Testament expert Herbert Wolf offers layreaders and scholars alike a solid introduction to the Pentateuch, going deep where he needs to while still providing a graspable overview.

Exodusthe significance of the plagues; Passover; the date of the Exodus; the Ten Commandments
Leviticusmeaning of the sacrificial system; the roles of priests and Levites; the Day of Atonement

R. Greene4 Stars Out Of 5January 2, 2009R. GreeneWolf has authored a very well written study on the Pentateuch. This was the textbook used in Bible College class. He handles the literary, historical and apologetics of the Books properly. There was good insights offered on more prominent passages. This book is written technically without being so scholarly as to limited the ability and enjoyment of reading of Moses' works. A very good start on studying the Pentateuch.
