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. From Paradise to the Promised Land 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.

-Publisher.

This text has been a popular introduction to the Pentateuch for over fifteen years, offering a unique alternative to the critical approaches that focus on the composition of these books rather than the actual content. With this new edition, T. Desmond Alexander keeps the book fresh and relevant for contemporary students by updating the references and adding material that reflects recent pentateuchal research as well as the author's maturing judgments. The result is a revision that will prove valuable for many years to come.
