Customer Reviews for Zondervan The Pentateuch as Narrative

Zondervan The Pentateuch as Narrative

The Pentateuch as Narrative focuses on the narrative and literary continuity of the Pentateuch as a whole rather than individual books. It seeks to disclose how the original Jewish readers may have viewed this multivolume work of Moses. Its central thesis is that the Pentateuch was written from the perspective of one who had lived under the Law of the Covenant established at Mount Sinai and had seen its failure to produce genuine trust in the Lord God of Israel. In this context, the Pentateuch pointed the reader forward to the hope of the New Covenant, based on divine faithfulness. Throughout the commentary Dr. Sailhamer pays close attention to and interacts with a wide range of classical and contemporary literature on the Pentateuch, written by Jews, Catholics and Protestants.

This is another good book that focus on the Lord God Almighty, Yaweh, the new Covenant/faithfulness and soft contemporary literature that is easy reading.

Best commentary on the Pentateuch, period. Sailhamer pays close attention to the text and links within the narrative. His writing is clear, God-centered, and devotional. Great, great, great commentary. Get it and read up on the Pentateuch.
