Book Information

"The Pentateuch" (its Greek name, but also known as the Torah by the Hebrews) consists of the first five books of the Bible: "Genesis", "Exodus", "Leviticus", "Numbers", and "Deuteronomy". From Adam and Eve in the Garden, to Noah's Ark, to Moses' parting of the Red Sea, to its conclusion with the death of Moses, the "Pentateuch" contains some of the most important and memorable stories in Western civilization. In this richly detailed work, which has become a standard in the field, renowned biblical scholar Joseph Blenkinsopp unravels (as Harold Bloom did in "The Book of J") the radical scholarly opinions on just where these ancient and powerful stories come from, how they were formed, and what significance they have today. In the classroom, when professors cover these books of Moses, they turn to Dr. Blenkinsopp's classic for reliable, accessible discussions of all the important details.
