From the February 1952 issue of The Christian Science Journal

As far as we know, the founders and early leaders of the Hebrew nation, such as Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, and Moses, had no writings to turn to for help and spiritual inspiration, although the Bible itself calls Genesis the book of Moses; and the first five books of the Bible, known as the Pentateuch, are also sometimes referred to as the book of Moses. These great Hebrew characters must have lived close to God, for it is recorded that God talked with Abraham and with Moses.
