From Paradise to the brink of Israel's entry into the promised land, the stories contained in the first five books of the Bible, the Pentateuch, are both intriguing and among the most easily recognized. T. Desmond Alexander offers a fascinating look into these biblical books with From Paradise to the Promised Land.
Unlike other studies, this book is not a running commentary on each passage. Instead, by concentrating on the unifying elements within the Pentateuch, it reveals the larger picture, identifying prominent themes and uncovering connections between the Pentateuch and the New Testament.
This comprehensive introduction to the Pentateuch has been updated in light of recent research and includes a new introductory section that surveys Pentateuchal criticism from the past 250 years and offers an evangelical critique.
