Item description for The Pentateuch (Interpreting Biblical Texts Series) by Terence E. Fretheim...

Designed for use in upper level college and seminary courses, this volume of the Interpreting Biblical Texts series helps students interpret the Pentateuch. It addresses issues essential for studying the Pentateuch and examines the latest thinking and learning about the social and cultural considerations that enrich a reading of these documents.

Publishers Description
In this volume, Terence E. Fretheim seeks to introduce the Pentateuch to modern readers, stressing its continuing capacity to speak a word of--or about--God. The two chapters of Part One provide an orientation to the critical study of the Pentateuch and present a proposal for reading the Pentateuch in terms of its rhetorical strategy. That strategy, Fretheim argues, is designed in such a way as to have a certain effect upon its readers, most basically to shape their faith and life. The five chapters of Part Two focus on the individual books that comprise the Pentateuch.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Pentateuch (Interpreting Biblical Texts Series)?

excellent intro for beginning study of the Pentateuch  Nov 9, 2005
As someone who teaches the Bible to Catholics in various contexts, I've found this little volume a handy guide to get people introduced to the basic issues of how to understand the Pentateuch. Fretheim explains things in a balanced, clear way without too much technical jargon (as Blenkinsopp's otherwise excellent volume tends to do) for beginners. He extracts from the mountains of scholarship just enough to keep people from being fundamentalists without overwhelming them with detail.
