About "The Pentateuch"
Noted Old Testament scholar Lloyd R. Bailey, Sr., provides a helpful methodology for interpreting the first five books of the Bible. He analyzes the text in detail, covering such topics as the concept of Torah, the literary forms that make up the Pentateuch, and the theories concerning its authorship. He also examines the Pentateuch's different levels of meaning, the authors' original intentions, how the first audiences received these writings, and their present-day relevance. Then, by exploring six carefully selected passages from the Pentateuch, Dr. Bailey objectively and systematically guides the reader in an independent investigation of these same points.
