Invitation to the Torah
A Guide to Reading, Teaching, and Preaching the Pentateuch
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"The subtitle tells it all--Reading, Teaching, and Preaching Torah--and in the right order. This is the finest work of its kind that I have ever come across. Technical, yes, and properly so, but written with a clarity and delightfulness of prose that it almost reads itself. I highly endorse it for serious Bible students from lay beginners to seasoned scholars."
--Eugene H. Merrill, Distinguished Professor of Old Testament Studies (Emeritus), Dallas Theological Seminary
"All too often, too many believers, teachers, and pastors have avoided using the first five books of the Bible because they wrongly regard these books of the Pentateuch as containing just assorted laws. But I agree with the author, these books are foundational to the rest of the Bible and begin a narrative that carries through the rest of the Bible. It is well outlined and is often discussed in contemporary terms that will catch the eye of the younger reader as well. It is a most enjoyable read."
--Walter C. Kaiser Jr., President Emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
"Campbell does a marvelous job illustrating the coherence and importance of the Torah within the sweep of redemptive history as it is recounted in Scripture. This eminently readable, trim volume is packed with keen literary observations, theological insight, and practical points that together highlight how the Old Testament brims with life for the church. I warmly commend it."
--William A. Ross, Assistant Professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary
