Introduction to the Pentateuch

Whybray, R. N. Introduction to the Pentateuch. Grand Rapids: William B. Eerdmans Pub. Co., 1995.

Call No.: 222.1061 W622i

Publisher's Description: Whybray provides a straightforward introduction to the contents and themes of the first five books of the Bible. Designed as an entry-level textbook for colleges and seminaries, this volume makes sense of the current muddle in Pentateuchal studies and introduces students to the contributions of earlier scholars in the field. Whybray stresses the meaning of the Pentateuch in its canonical form while remaining sensitive to its literary merit, theological import, and compelling power.
