If the Bible were compared to a house, the Pentateuch or Torah would be like the foundation-the part upon which the whole house stands rooted to the ground. The fundamental principles of all that God is doing in the world, from its creation until its consummation, are contained right here. In The Bible's Foundation, Dr. Nathan Schmiedicke, Professor of Scripture at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, Nebraska, skillfully guides the reader through the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy, introducing Adam, Abel, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Joshua, and many other pivotal figures of salvation history and drawing out the meaning of the creation of the world and the creation of Israel, the banishment from Eden, and the sign of the Promised Land. Over the course of the book, Dr. Schmiedicke, like a master artisan teaching the practice of a craft, shows the apprentice reader how to read the Bible in general, and the Pentateuch in particular, so as to derive the most benefit from it.
