Building A Theological Library: Pentateuch

January 23, 2013 — Leave a comment

A while back I gave you an overview of general Old Testament resources I found helpful. Today, we’ll start into the book divisions with the Pentateuch. Just to reiterate, these are my preferences and what make up my library. There are definitely some great resources I’ve overlooked. What I’m trying to do here is give you what I typically look for, and in the case of individual books, what I think is the best 2 commentaries for a pastor to have on each (because I think you should have at least 2) and what is the best single commentary for the interested reader to pick up (who is maybe not a pastor). What I’m listing here is a) what commentaries I currently have and b) what commentaries I’m still tracking down (gradually and systematically).

The commentaries in bold are the ones I think are your best bet if you’re just going to get one.

Here’s our overview again:

  • Overview
  • Old Testament Backgrounds
  • The Pentateuch (what you’re reading as we speak)
  • The Historical Books
  • The Prophets
  • The Writings
  • Special Studies/Miscellaneous Resources
