Opening the Books of Moses, Paperback / softback Book

Opening the Books of Moses Paperback / softback

Part of the BibleWorld series


Opening the Books of Moses presents an introduction to the first five books of the Bible.

It is written for any student engaged in the scholarly study of these most central of biblical texts.

The aim throughout is to examine the books with a view to illuminating the ideas, beliefs and experiences of the time.

This broad overview provides: a survey of the current state of Pentateuchal research; an analysis of how the texts were shaped by their time and audience; an outline of Jewish areas in the Persian period; the study concludes with an analysis of key concerns in the study of the Pentateuch, notably the Torah, geography, ethnicity, the nature of Yahweh and other deities, theories of cult, treaties and oaths, and Moses himself.
