Prof. Levinson Publishes Interdisciplinary Volume on Formation of the Pentateuch

Prof. Bernard Levinson has co-edited a major international volume, The Formation of the Pentateuch: Bridging the Academic Cultures of Europe, Israel, and North America (Mohr Siebeck 2016), xii + 1204 pages. Despite nearly two centuries of scholarship on the Pentateuch, its historical origins and literary history are still a subject of intense debate. With contributions form forty-five specialists and a particular focus on law, this volume seeks to stimulate international discussion about the Pentateuch in order to help the discipline move toward a set of shared assumptions and a common discourse.
