Wednesday Giveaway - The Torah Story

Categories Old Testament

The Torah StoryThe books of the Torah are foundational for the rest of Old
Testament. Understanding the narrative and theology of these first five books
is key to understanding all that follows, from the Psalms to the Prophets.

This week’s giveaway, The Torah Story by Gary E. Schnittjer,
was written to introduce those first five books in an engaging and accessible
way.

Designed for use by any serious student of Scripture, The
Torah Story
is neither an introduction nor a commentary – though it has
features of both. Instead, it provides a model of how to read a large section
of Scripture intertextually, emphasizing the unity of the message and
composition of the Pentateuch, as well as its overarching story of God’s saving
work.

Each chapter includes:

* Questions that focus on key issues and terms
* Outlines and summaries
* Challenge questions drawn from the chapter and biblical
text
* Advanced questions for those who want deeper exploration
of biblical contexts, language, and exegetical or theological issues
* Research project suggestions

These features, and many more besides, make The Torah Story an
excellent resource for anyone studying the Pentateuch.

Torah?
