Kofford Books is pleased to announce the release of David Bokovoy's innovative and extremely valuable new volume Authoring the Old Testament: Genesis—Deuteronomy, available now for purchase in paperback, hardcover, and e-book.
For the last two centuries, biblical scholars have made discoveries and insights about the Old Testament that have greatly changed the way in which the authorship of these ancient scriptures have been understood.
In the first of three volumes spanning the entire Old Testament, David Bokovoy dives into the Penateuch, showing how and why biblical scholars today understand the first five books of the Bible as a compilation of multiple texts into a single, though often complicated narrative—not unlike the process Mormon undertook in editing and compiling the Book of Mormon. Professor Bokovoy also discusses what implications those have for Latter-day Saint understandings of the Bible and modern scripture.
