Summary
This text has been a popular introduction to the Pentateuch for over fifteen years, offering a unique alternative to the critical approaches that focus on the composition of these books rather than the actual content. With this new edition, T. Desmond Alexander keeps the book fresh and relevant for contemporary students by updating the references and adding material that reflects recent Pentateuchal research as well as the author's maturing judgments. The result is a revision that will prove valuable for many years to come. - Publisher
