Now available for the first time from renown author, teacher and scholar Meredith G. Kline is a brief never-before-published commentary, Genesis: A New Commentary. This posthumously published commentary on Genesis was written just after the late scholar finished his magnum opus, Kingdom Prologue, and distills his mature views on the book of Genesis and, indeed, on Scripture as a whole.
Following an introduction that addresses the canonical function, literary-thematic framework, theological story, and authorship of Genesis, Kline separates the text into 10 structural divisions, offering insightful interpretation of each. The commentary has been edited by Kline's grandson Jonathan G. Kline and contains a foreword by Michael S. Horton. Genesis: A New Commentary will appeal to students, pastors, and laypeople who, like so many in the Reformed community, have admired or been transformed by Kline's teaching and writings.

Meredith G. Kline is famous in the Reformed community for his teaching and writings in the area of biblical and covenant theology. In the mid-1990s, just after Kline finished writing what is considered to be his magnum opus (a study of the book of Genesis called Kingdom Prologue), he wrote a brief commentary on the same biblical text. Genesis: A New Commentary was not published during his lifetime and is just now being made available to the public.
Many of Kline's former students, as well as many pastors and laypeople in the Reformed community, consider his work to have had a transformative effect on their faith and thinking. His teaching and writings (he wrote seven books and more than seventy articles) were filled with fresh, insightful interpretations.
Meredith Kline's posthumously published Genesis: A New Commentary which distills his mature views on the book of Genesis and, indeed, on Scripture as a whole will appeal greatly to those who already admire his work, and make his thinking accessible to a broader audience. The commentary has been edited by Kline's grandson Jonathan G. Kline, who received his PhD in Hebrew Bible from Harvard University, and contains a foreword by Michael S. Horton, the J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics at Westminster Seminary California.
Meredith G. Kline (1922-2007) was a professor of Old Testament for fifty-five years, teaching at four seminaries: Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Reformed Theological Seminary, and Westminster Theological Seminary California. He was also an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.

This volume turns out to be a posthumous work where his grandson, Jonathan Kline, found this manuscript in his grandfather's things and lovingly edited it for publication.
Though this book is clearly not written as a major commentary, it is a pithy help on Genesis that reflects the mature judgments of an influential scholar in the twilight of his career. Unlike some modern commentaries, this book is not dry. Even better, he is not afraid to see Christ and His glorious Gospel revealed on the pages of Genesis. For that matter, he even sees Moses as the author, which is unfortunately too uncommon in our day.
I couldn't personally agree with all his thoughts on the covenant, nor a few of his thoughts in Genesis 1, but if you prefer a volume that spurs thinking rather than trying to do it all for you, you might want to look up this little jewel.
