Product Description

A thought-provoking interpretation of Genesis---focused on pressing contemporary themes of liberation and concern for the poor and marginalized. Remembering Jacob's wrestling at Peniel, De La Torre affirms that there are consequences when we truly wrestle with the biblical text, drawing from church tradition and contemporary culture to offer powerful theological, practical, and ethical insights.

The volumes in Belief: A Theological Commentary on the Bible from Westminster John Knox Press offer a fresh and invigorating approach to all the books of the Bible. Building on a wide range of sources from biblical studies and the Christian tradition, noted scholars focus less on traditional historical and literary angles in favor of a theologically focused commentary that considers the contemporary relevance of the texts. This series is an invaluable resource for those who want to probe beyond the backgrounds and words of biblical texts to their deep theological meanings for the church today.
