Product Description

The book of Genesis is a lively read featuring familiar biblical tales such as the creation of the world, Adam and Eve and the forbidden fruit, Noah and the flood, Abraham and Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, the Tower of Babel, and Sodom and Gomorrah.

While readers may know the facts of these stories, Goldingay's work will instill in them a deeper understanding of their spiritual and theological significance. True to the For Everyone series' goal, Goldingay writes in a thoroughly accessible and engaging style with chapter titles such as "Friday Lunchtime," "Bigamy, Music, Technology, Murder," "Babylon becomes Babble-on," "Stuff Happens," and "Two Guys Who Need Their Heads Banged Together."

Editorial Reviews

"Goldingay captures our interest through the power of the Old Testament and also through his honest sharing of its impact on his own life and those around him. This series truly is for everyone who wants to grow in their understanding of the Old Testament." Tremper Longman, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Old Testament, Westmont College
"Clear, reliable, and thought-provoking studies of the Hebrew Scriptures. These down-to-earth presentations, often illuminated by contemporary images and illustrations, probe the theological dimensions of the text with insight and offer reflections that can richly inform faith and life." Terence E. Fretheim, Elva B. Lovell Professor of Old Testament, Luther Seminary
"Designed so that biblical faith can engage the deepest hopes, deepest fears, and deepest hungers in our society. Such engagement requires precisely an interpreter like Goldingay who brings to the task his great learning, his deep passion for faith, his informed imagination, and his attentiveness to contemporary life. This series will be an important and compelling resource for obedient thinking and joyous living." Walter Brueggemann, William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament, Columbia Theological Seminary

    Dr. Goldingay really excels at getting to the heart of the matter. He's a great scholar who fully understands the ancient context. Easy to read, but provokes you to think. This series is one that I look forward to reading each day.

    To be honest, I didn't like it very much. For example: commenting on Genesis 2:15-20, the writer starts with the vision that the good-and-bad-knowledge tree must be something good, because it's a good thing to know the difference between good and evil. Therefore he says that the prohibition to eat from it is a strange prohibition and he tries to explain the text in a way that it supports his (pre-supposed) vision. In short, I think there's too much pre-supposed vision in this commentary, which doesn't do justice to the text itself. I'm a fan of the NT-series by N.T. Wright, but not of this one.

    Goldingay is an exceptional scholar and a whole-hearted follower of Jesus, who thoroughly understands the cultural context in which Genesis was written in (and therefore the message that the original audience would have heard), but also brings the text to us, guiding us in how it applies afresh in our everyday life.

    I highly recommend this and everyone of the other commentaries in the series.
