Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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."

Synopsis:

"A sound piece of work. Its holistic, final-form approach reflects the major trend in biblical criticism. It is perceptive, sensitive, thoughtful and stimulation".---David Gunn Professor of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary

About the Author

Thomas W. Mann served as Pastor of Parkway United Church of Christ in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, for over twenty years. He has taught at Converse College and Princeton Theological Seminary.
