Reviews - What do our customers think?
One of the best short introductions I have seen  Oct 29, 2007
Alexander has done a great job with this book. Like most intros to the Pentateuch/ OT he discusses source-critical issues, but unlike most other such intros he does not dogmatically accept. Instead he critiques them and allows the reader to decide for themselves. The language is fluid and his arguments well-reasoned and easy to follow, and the text is not cluttered by too many footnotes. Highly recommended.
 
A great book on the overview of the themes of the Pentateuch.  Jan 20, 2007
This book is divided into 2 sections. The first section deals with the criticisms on the authorship and source of the Pentateuch. The second section deals with the themes of the Pentateuch such as the blessings of the nation, faith, Passover, who is the LORD, Covenant, Tabernacle etc. It is easy to read with a great link section to the New Testament which makes it relevant for the 21st century readers.
 
Solid Reference Work for the OT reader  Dec 12, 2002
Alexander brings a usable piece of scholarship to the world of academia with this book. It is a step above entry level texts on the Pentateuch, and is a good read. This book will help you figure out the themes in the beginning of the Old Testament, and point you in the direction of deeper sources for themes that you want to dig deeper into. I view this book as fairly progressive, not overly conservative and certainly not liberal scholarship. So, depending on what school of thought you are from, this book falls somewhere in the middle, which I appreciate.
