Atlanta : John Knox Press, c1988.


An insightful introduction to the pentateuchal narrative, The Book of the Torah applies trends in narratology from biblical studies, systematic theology, ethics, and hermeneutics to the study of these books. Thomas Mann presents a comprehensive interpretation of the Pentateuch as a whole rather than focusing on its composite parts. While recognizing the presence of various literary sources, he emphasizes the literary and theological coherence of larger units within each of the traditional "books," discusses the ways the books are interrelated, and explores the meaning of the first five books of the Bible as part of the complete document we call the "Torah."

This is a nice, to-the-point introduction to the Pentateuch. It's great to conceive of Genesis through Deuteronomy as a whole. Good insights. Enjoy.
