The Pentateuch (Interpreting Biblical Texts Series)

The Pentateuch (Interpreting Biblical Texts Series)

$43.99

Paperback
Terence E. Fretheim is Professor of Old Testament at Luther Seminary.

- Publisher In this volume, Terence E. Fretheim seeks to introduce the Pentateuch to modern readers, stressing its continuing capacity to speak a word of--or about--God. The two chapters of Part One provide an orientation to the critical study of the Pentateuch and present a proposal for reading the Pentateuch in terms of its rhetorical strategy. That strategy, Fretheim argues, is designed in such a way as to have a certain effect upon its readers, most basically to shape their faith and life. The five chapters of Part Two focus on the individual books that comprise the Pentateuch.
