Product Description

What kinds of literature are found in Genesis? How do they compare with their Mesopotamian counterparts? How much of each story is myth and how much is history? Longman has studied these passages intensely and provides valuable guidelines to interpret both the poetry and the prose. To read Genesis intelligently, we must consider the questions, the literature and the times in which Genesis was written. In How to Read Genesis Tremper Longman III provides a welcome guide to reading and studying, understanding and savoring this panorama of beginnings, of both the world and of Israel. And importantly for Christian readers, we gain insight into how Genesis points to Christ and can be read in light of the gospel.

Publisher's Description

Honored in 2006 as a "Year's Best Book for Preachers" by Preaching magazine. Creation in six days Woman from the side of man "Sons of god" taking "daughters of men" A massive disaster and an animal rescue boat of biblical proportions Abraham, Sarah, Hagar and the ongoing saga of a dysfunctional family These are just a few of the episodes that Genesis conjures up. But we miss the point if we focus on what seems strange to us. And we distort the message if we demand that this book answer questions that are strange to it. To read Genesis intelligently, we must consider the questions, the literature and the times in which Genesis was written. In How to Read Genesis Tremper Longman III provides a welcome guide to reading and studying, understanding and savoring this panorama of beginnings--of both the world and of Israel. And importantly for Christian readers, we gain insight into how Genesis points to Christ and can be read in light of the gospel.

    I have been looking for a book like this for so long! This book is a breath of fresh air.. Tremper Longman affirms the inerrancy and infallibility of Scripture while allowing the reader total freedom to explore the book of Genesis without reading our culture into it!I recommend this book to everyone!!!
