Series: Interpretation Commentary
In his clear and readable style Walter Brueggemann presents Genesis as a single book set within the context of the whole of biblical revelation. He sees his task as bringing the text close to the faith and ministry of the church. He interprets Genesis as a proclamation of God's decisive dealing with creation rather than as history of myth. Brueggemann's impressive perspective illuminates the study of the first book of the Bible.
Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.

It has been a good reference when it uses other scripture to support a topic and that is good

However it is NOT, it would have been more effective if he would have spoke as he was trying to teach children. To me I am more effective in my delivery when I try and stay on the level of those that I speakingto rather than try and speak above them.

Leigh Hebbard5 Stars Out Of 5December 27, 2009Leigh HebbardPerhaps the best commentary on Genesis in print. Period! The first reviewer clearly did not grasp what Brueggemann was saying.
Jeremy1 Stars Out Of 5April 10, 2008JeremyIF you are evangelical you will not find this book helpful at all. He states that he will not treat Genesis as history or myth and then proceeds to treat it as myth.
