Product Description

As the foundation for the Old Testament, the five opening books of the Bible are of critical importance. However, most modern studies focus on origin, neglecting actual content. This book offers a unique alternative.From Paradise to the Promised Land is not a commentary on individual passages. Instead, Alexander reveals the larger picture of the Pentateuch, identifying prominent themes and connections between the Pentateuch and the New Testament.This comprehensive introduction has been updated throughout in light of recent research. In addition, Alexander includes a new introductory section surveying Pentateuchal criticism from the past 250 years and offering an evangelical critique.
