He does not merely give lip service to the priority of the biblical text. Instead, on page after page he discusses the structure, patterns, and surprises of the narrative in a way that draws the reader into the biblical story. This is an impressive feat, and one that makes this rather long book still very suitable for use in the classroom. It would serve particularly well in a course on the Pentateuch at either the undergraduate or graduate level, and could also be used as a text on the hermeneutics of OT narrative literature or a survey of the OT.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310248612, Hardcover)

Working knowledge of the Torah is essential for every serious student of the Scriptures. Written in an engaging and accessible voice, even while digging into difficult and complicated matters at a sophisticated level, The Torah Story emphasizes the content of the text itself, moving beyond debating dates and theories of authorship into understanding how these five key books of the Bible help us understand the story of salvation. Providing flexible options for further study, each chapter includes the following: * Tips and tools for getting started * Questions that focus on key issues Key terms to look for * Outlines and summaries of the material * An interactive workshop designed for students, individuals, or study groups * 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 * Discussion activities using films to engage the biblical narrative (selected chapters) A refreshingly new approach to the Torah---neither an introduction nor a commentary---The Torah Story provides a model of how to read Scripture intertextually. It leaves no doubt as to the overarching unity of the message and composition of the Pentateuch.
