Includes bibliographical references.
The genres of the Pentateuch -- Major themes of the Pentateuch -- Getting started -- Interpreting the Pentateuch -- Communicating the genres of the Pentateuch -- Putting it all together.
Divided into three parts, Interpreting the Pentateuch first provides an overview of the major themes of the Pentateuch. In the second part, Vogt offers resources and strategies for interpreting and understanding the first five books of the Bible by exploring its genres-law and narrative. Finally, Vogt shows that, although the Pentateuch is a collection of ancient texts, it still has contemporary significance. Vogt also includes two samples-one from law and one from narrative-of exegesis, giving students a start-to-finish example of the techniques he has illustrated for effective exegesis. --from publisher description.
