the publication of  the first volume in a new monograph 
series (Serie Monográfica de Estudios  Bíblicos y 
Teológicos de la Universidad Adventista del Plata/River

and Theological Studies).  The volume focuses on the 
Pentateuch and contains eleven original  contributions 
from international scholars. Six of the articles are 
published in  English with the remaining five being 
written in Spanish. To facilitate  penetration of the work in 
the international market, every chapter is preceded  by a 
concise English and Spanish abstract. The volume is 
divided into three  main divisions, involving 
methodological questions, exegetical issues and  
theological studies. The complete bibliographical 
reference of the volume is  as follows:

Endorsements 

“This is a useful and eclectic collection of articles on the 
Pentateuch, ranging  through philosophical and 
methodological studies, exegetical and theological  
analysis, and comparisons between the Old Testament 
writings and those of  the same period from elsewhere in 
the ancient Near East. The work shows the  continued and 
growing competence of SDA scholars of biblical studies, 
and is  a welcome mix of work being conducted in both 
the English and Spanish  worlds. It should prove a useful 
addition to seminary library bookshelves.” 
                     —David W. Baker, Professor of Old Testament and 
                                                   Semitic Languages 
                                    Ashland Theological Seminary, USA

 “Ésta es una colección interesante de estudios detallados 
de los primeros  cinco libros del Antiguo Testamento. En 
sus tres secciones este tomo trata una  variedad de temas: 
interactúa con cuestiones filosóficas, presenta datos  
arqueológicos y ofrece una exégesis cuidadosa de textos 
bíblicos. Todos los  trabajos se basan en una profunda 
convicción de que el Pentateuco es una  parte importante 
de la Escritura cristiana. Otro de los aportes significativos 
de  esta obra es que representa otra voz en la academia. Es 
una muestra de que los  estudios en español empiezan a 
tomar su puesto merecido en la mesa con la  erudición en 
ingles, francés, y alemán”.

“The appearance of this monograph marks a pivotal 
moment in South  American Old Testament scholarly 
publications. Studies in this  volume—dealing with crucial 
issues and topics in Pentateuchal methodology,  exegesis, 
and theology—set forth seminal, penetrating, even land-
mark  research. The inauguration of this monograph series 
appears to be a harbinger  of continuing enrichment for the 
international scholarly community.” 
                —Richard M. Davidson, J. N. Andrews Professor of Old
