Westermann's commentary on the book of Genesis is divided into three volumes. The first volume comments on Genesis 1-11, which deals with the beginning of the world and the human race. The second volume comments on Genesis 12-36, and deals with the patriarchal story in the figures of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The third volume comments on Genesis 37-50 and touches upon the Joseph story. In each of these volumes Professor Westermann offers an extensive introduction to the social and religious setting of the patriarchal period and an analysis of the shaping of the text of Genesis 12-36. Readers will also find features for each unit of the text as follows: rich bibliography a new translation with linguistic notes analysis of form and setting verse-by-verse commentary word studies and short essays on particular themes theological assessment.
