Exploring the Old Testament, Vol. 1: The Pentateuch introduces students to the first five books of the Old Testament. In a challenging and engaging way it enables students to understand the kinds of literature they are dealing with, the structure and purpose of these books, the major themes and theologies of each book, and issues for today arising from each area of study.
