"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
