Annotations for Navarre Bible, the Pentateuch
Blackwell North Amer
The Pentateuch, also known to Christians and Jews as the "Law" ("Torah" in Hebrew), is the name given to the first five books of the Bible.
Like the other volumes in the standard edition of the Navarre Bible, prepared by Navarre University's theology faculty, this volume contains the full biblical text in the Revised Standard Version and the New Vulgate together with extensive commentaries. The commentaries, or notes, help to explain the doctrinal and practical meaning of the scriptural text, drawing on a rich variety of sources, Church documents, the exegesis of Fathers and Doctors, and the works of prominent spiritual writers, particularly Blessed J. Escriva, who initiated the Navarre Bible project.
