Product Description

Joyce Baldwin approaches Genesis in this commentary from an Evangelical position. She treats Genesis as a historical document, discussing the idea of history in the introduction. After this discussion Baldwin goes on to discuss each verse from a theological and practical point of view. This commentary focuses on chapters 12-50 of Genesis in order to analyze the Hebrew Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. This treatment is good for teachers or lay people. Joyce Baldwin, Old Testament scholar and former principal of Trinity College, Bristol, has written numerous books and commentaries on the Old Testament.

Publisher's Description

Abraham -- called out of Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan, there to found a great nation, a blessing to all peoples. Isaac -- his son, taken to be sacrificed by his father, until God provided a substitue. Jacob -- Isaac's son, the schemer who cheated his older brother of his birthright but whose thigh (and heart) was broken as he wrestled all night with God's messenger. Joseph -- the dreamer sold into Egypt by his brothers, who meant it for evil while God meant it for good. These are the patriarchs whose stories are told in Genesis 12-50. Why have these accounts been preserved? What importance do they have in the development of Israel's understanding of God? What message from them does God have for us today? Joyce Baldwin skillfully weaves her answers to these questions, bringing the history of an ancient people to bear on our lives.

    Baldwin is an Evangelical writer whose work is always helpful. This book is no exception. It is relatively brief, but serves as a great aid to personal study or lesson preparation. It is enlightening and practical. It is very accessible. For scholarly issues, one will need to look elsewhere, but for a solid exposition, built upon good scholarship this is as good as it gets.

    Excellent. Easy reading, not encumbered with a lot of Hebrew, with application for today's Christian.
