    Gordon Wenham has produced an excellent commentary that respects the critical and contemporary view of Scripture while maintaining a thoroughly evangelical point of view. His text is at once at the level of the advanced student, but can be understood by the casual reader. While a bit pricey, it is worth it.

    Wenham is a respected Evangelical Old Testament scholar. His two volume commentary on Genesis continues his fine history of work. This commentary includes a depth of information that exceeds what is found in many others. He also uses a wider variety of exegetical tools as is typical of the Word series. For example he uses source criticism, textual criticism, fairly extensive interaction with the Hebrew, and very helpful treatment of the form, structure, and setting of each passage. The "comment" section more closely resembles what is found in most commentaries and is well written. I don't personally like his approach to the source criticism of Genesis, but he does argue in a way that is consistent with a high view of scripture. Other commentaries are more accessible, but for a detailed, scholarly treatment, Wenham's volumes are excellent.
