Blenkinsopp - Pentateuch

Blenkinsopp’s The Pentateuch serves a number of purposes. It serves as an introduction/survey that is written on a level so that the non-academic can follow the discussion, while at the same time keeping the scholar engaged as well. Though Blenkinsopp was not attempting to write a commentary on the Pentateuch, in some places he does just that (perhaps very strongly in some areas of literary and historical insights), but with special reference to the documentary hypothesis. This emphasis on the documentary hypothesis is certainly an important point for Blenkinsopp.
