Reviews - What do customers think about The Pentateuch: An Introduction to the First Five Books of the Bible (The Anchor Yale Bible Reference Library)?

Save this one for the academics  Sep 9, 2005
This book is incredibly obtuse. It is only helpful if you have a significant backbround in Biblical scholarship and Old Testament criticism.
Excellent Resource--But Not Recommended for Beginners  Aug 25, 2000
This book by Blenkinsopp is an excellent resource for the study of the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Bible, also called the Torah or the Books of Moses). Though I do not recommend it for beginners who are just initiating their study of the Pentateuch, it will prove of great value for those who may be in the intermediate stage of study (and beyond) who wish to explore a healthy critique of the four-source hypothesis which has come to dominate this field of study.

Chapter One is especially valuable as Blenkinsopp provides an historical overview of Pentateuchal scholarship to date. This chapter brings the reader up to par and offers the author a starting point for his readable critique. In short, Blenkinsopp suggests that the hard lines of Pentateuchal source theory should be softened so that a multitude of influences can be discovered and appreciated. Perhaps the greatest insight of this author is the realization that no critical theory is perfect and that the insights of numerous theories can often prove useful.
