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
