In Interpreting the Pentateuch, Old Testament scholar Peter T. Vogt overviews the major themes of the Pentateuch and offers strategies for interpretation by exploring its genres: law and narrative. Divided into three parts, Interpreting the Pentateuch first provides an overview of the major themes of the Pentateuch. In the second part, Vogt offers resources and strategies for interpreting and understanding the first five books of the Bible by exploring its genres-law and narrative. Finally, Vogt shows that, although the Pentateuch is a collection of ancient texts, it still has contemporary significance. Providing two start-to-finish examples of proper exegesis, he shows that, although the Pentateuch is a collection of ancient texts, it still has contemporary significance.
