These are explored in their ancientcontext and from the standpoint of contemporaryconcerns such as liberation theology, gender issues and ecology.
"An excellent introduction to the Pentateuch. The introduction includes basic introductory material that most students do not know but need in order to understand critical scholarship in a clear, concise, and easy to read manner. The charts and maps are clear and helpful. The author has an even-handed approach making this an excellent introductory book." --Religious Studies Review
