The Theme of the Pentateuch (Journal For The Study Of The Old Testament Supplement Series)

The Theme of the Pentateuch (Journal For The Study Of The Old Testament Supplement Series)

$59.99

Paperback
This popular textbook regards the Pentateuch as a literary whole, with a single theme that binds it together. The overarching theme is the partial fulfilment of the promises to the patriarchs. Though the method of the book is holistic, the origin and growth of the theme is also explored using the methods of traditional source analysis. An important chapter explores the theological function of the Pentateuch both in the community for which the Pentateuch was first composed and in our own time. For this second, enlarged edition, the author has written an Epilogue reassessing the theme of the Pentateuch from a more current postmodern perspective.

"If you want to get a feel for where Genesis is heading and, in particular, how it helps set up the framework for the rest of the Old Testament, The Theme of the Pentateuch...is gold...it is short...and well worth a read as a starting point for getting the overall theme for this part of the Bible.'
^ Gordon Cheng, The Briefing, October 2006
