The Pentateuch (Torah) is a foundation document for both Christians and Jews. Summarizing its contents and basic story line, Gooder analyses its key themes* creating and flood, exodus and liberation, covenant and land, law and faith. These are explored in relation to their ancient setting, by comparison with other ancient stories and law codes, and then in relation to contemporary concerns such as liberation theology, war and peace, gender issues and ecology.
Paula Gooder is Tutor in Biblical Studies at Ripon College Cuddesdon, Oxford.
The Biblical Studies series has been developed for those embarking on theological and ministerial education, but it is equally valuable for those in local church positions, and for lay people confused by apparently conflicting approaches to Scripture.^The Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible (Torah), is a foundation document for both Jews and Christians. A summary of its contents is followed by an analysis of its key themes: creation and flood, exodus and liberation, covenant and land, law and faith. These are then explored in relation to their ancient setting by comparing them with other ancient narratives and law codes known to us through archaeology and from the standpoint of contemporary concerns such as liberation theology, war and peace, gender issues, and ecology^This volume is ideal for those beginning an Old Testament course.
