Recommended to Lydia by: Eric Thompson, BIB101: Pentateuch, Multnomah Reno-Tahoe
Hamilton provides a wonderful survey of the Pentateuch. For the most part, this book is easy to read and understand. It gets a little heady in some parts but that should be expected. This is a fine book for those who want to know the first five books of the Bible better. Our culture is asking pertinent questions regarding the content of the Pentateuch. It is essential that we understand this section of scripture and be able to communicate it's purposes effectively.

Each section provides good insights to each book. By no means does it go into every issue that the Pentateuch addresses, but for an introduction it is helpful in pulling out the main themes and ideas.
