The Geeky Calvinist5 Stars Out Of 5A Needed Commentary on GenesisDecember 2, 2017The Geeky CalvinistQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Genesis 11:27-50:26 is an Old Testament commentary, written by Kenneth A. Matthews and published by B&H Academic is an enduring work of academic excellence and superior Exegesis with pastoral care. This commentary is a foundational edition of the New American Commentary Series, a prestigious series which is synonymous with outstanding exegesis and unparalleled application, this volume not only continues this legacy, but propels it to new heights. Genesis 11:27-50:26 is the second volume of Matthews commentary on Genesis and is one of the most articulate and practical commentaries on the first book of the Pentateuch in Holy Scripture. This was a study that is needed in the light of the current cultures attack of the concept of sin and foundationalism. Matthews is a highly regarded scholar and professor at Beeson Divinity School and has written two other commentaries in the NAC series (Genesis 1-11:26 and the Judges portion of the Judges & Ruth commentary).
Genesis 11:27-50:26 has one main section ab insightful exegetical commentary on the first book of the Pentateuch. In this volume Matthews does not include and introdcution for it is int the first volume. The translation of Genesis that Matthew uses is the NIV (New International Version), thankfully it is the 1984 version of the NIV rather than the 2011 version, which has rid itself of much of Gods gender.
While I disagree with Matthews on a few of issues with regard to Old Testament interpretation, his scholarly work on the first book of the Pentateuch is very well researched and written for a pastor preaching or teaching through the book of Genesis exegeticaly. In the vein of recommending, Genesis 11:27-50:26, to others I would recommend this commentary to pastors and scholars. There are many commentaries about Genesis available at this moment but Genesis 11:27-50:26 of the New American Commentary series is commentary too good to pass on.
This book was provided to me free of charge from B&H Academic in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

Bill Wade5 Stars Out Of 5February 8, 2010Bill WadeAn invaluable commentary on the book of Genesis. The author's knowledge of the original language and familiarity with early Jewish and Christian culture adds substantially to the explanation of verses contained in this book. Excellent for the pastor or teacher unfamiliar with the Hebrew language as well as for personal study. Would highly recommend this addition to any Christian's library.
