The Dictionary of the Old Testament: Pentateuch is the first in a four-volume series covering the text of the Old Testament. In exploring the major themes and issues of the Pentateuch, it informs and challenges its readers with authoritative overviews, detailed examinations and new insights from the world of the ancient Near East.
This encyclopaedic work is characterised by close attention to the text of the Old Testament and the ongoing conversation of contemporary scholarship, and is designed to be your first stop in the study and research of the Pentateuch, on which the rest of the Bible is built.
"The Dictionary of the Old Testament: Pentateuch contains a wealth of important information for all students of this foundational portion of Scripture. The articles are all written by leading scholars in the field under the guidance of two preeminent Old Testament interpreters well known for their own work on the Pentateuch... I highly recommend it." - Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College
