Providing historical accounts of the origins of the Hexateuch and the Pentateuch, this volume includes a critical look at the literary styles contained within these biblical books, as well as a close-up look at Old Testament Jewish law. An Introduction to the Pentateuch gives a comprehensive overview and guide to the study of the Pentateuch.
There are no better books in exposition of the different parts of Scripture than those contained in the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges. The series has long since established its claim to an honorable place in the front rank of first-rate commentaries; and the teacher or preacher who masters its volumes will be, like Apollos, mighty in the Scriptures.
