#1 in the Saxon mystery series. Introducing L.A.-based private eye Saxon. A transplanted Easterner trying to make it as an actor, Saxon stays solvent (and sane) between roles by running an investigating agency. When someone takes a potshot at famous pulp detective writer Buck Weldon, Saxon agrees to help—especially after meeting Weldon’s tall blonde daughter. Turns out, the writer’s enemy list is longer than some of his novels and is headed by his agent, his publisher, and one of the biggest producers in Hollywood. Baffling leads involve a major cocaine dealer and a professor specializing in private eye literature. Saxon’s investigation takes him from Westwood to Palm Springs and back to the San Fernando Valley before its violent culmination in a backwater Mexican village on the Baja peninsula.

Most scholars studying the first five books of the Bible either attempt to dissect it into various pre-pentateuchal documents or, at the very least, analyze Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy as separate, self-contained documents. The Pentateuch As Narrative focuses on the narrative and literary continuity of the Pentateuch as a whole. It seeks to disclose how the original Jewish readers may have viewed this multivolume work of Moses. Its central thesis is that the Pentateuch was written from the perspective of one who had lived under the Law of the Covenant established at Mount Sinai and had seen its failure to produce genuine trust in the Lord God of Israel. In this context, the Pentateuch pointed the reader forward to the hope of the New Covenant, based on divine faithfulness. Throughout the commentary Dr. Sailhamer pays close attention to and interacts with a wide range of classical and contemporary literature on the Pentateuch, written by Jews, Catholics, and Protestants.

Return to the Bible as it was before chapters and verses. The Bible isn’t a single book. It’s a collection of many books that were written, preserved and gathered together so that they could be shared with new generations of readers. The Bible is an invitation to you to first view the world in a new way, and then to become an agent of the world’s renewal. The Books of the Bible, NIV helps you have a more meaningful encounter with the sacred writings and to read with more understanding, so that you can take your place more readily within this story of new creation. This is a revolutionary new presentation of the NIV Scripture that strips away centuries of artificial formatting, leaving behind nothing but pure Bible text. The result is a Bible unlike any other available today — and more like the original Scriptures: specially designed to be read from start to finish. “There is no Bible more suited to reading from beginning to end.” — Scot McKnight, author of Jesus Creed Features: Specifically, this edition of the Bible differs from the most common current format in several significant ways: • Chapter and verse numbers have been removed from the text • The books are presented instead according to the internal divisions that we believe their authors have indicated • A single-column setting is used to present the text more clearly and naturally, and to avoid disrupting the intended line breaks in poetry • Footnotes, section headings and any other additional materials have been removed from the pages of the sacred text • Individual books that later tradition divided into two or more parts are put back together again • The books are arranged in an order that helps you understand the Bible more completely
