The Meaning of the Pentateuch

From Justin Taylor:

John Piper on John Sailhamer’s just-published magnum opus, The Meaning of the Pentateuch (IVP, 2009):

To all pastors and serious readers of the Old Testament—geek, uber geek, under geek, no geek—if  you graduated from high school and know the word “m e a n i n g,” sell your latest Piper or Driscoll book and buy Sailhamer.

There is nothing like it. It will rock your world. You will never read the “Pentateuch” the same again. It is totally readable. You can skip all the footnotes and not miss a beat.

Last week, when Piper got the book, he tweeted: ” I feel like a greedy miser over a chest of gold.”

One thought on “The Meaning of the Pentateuch

  1. I bought this book on your recommendation.

    I’m at page 160 and can not put it down.

    It is like the good professor is right here talking to me.

    Everything you said about is true.

    Thanks, Joe Johnson
