Sem Student5 Stars Out Of 5Genesis part oneOctober 3, 2014Sem StudentQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Dr. Goldingay really excels at getting to the heart of the matter. He's a great scholar who fully understands the ancient context. Easy to read, but provokes you to think. This series is one that I look forward to reading each day.
Herman2 Stars Out Of 5Genesis for everyone, chapters 1-16September 4, 2014HermanQuality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1To be honest, I didn't like it very much. For example: commenting on Genesis 2:15-20, the writer starts with the vision that the good-and-bad-knowledge tree must be something good, because it's a good thing to know the difference between good and evil. Therefore he says that the prohibition to eat from it is a strange prohibition and he tries to explain the text in a way that it supports his (pre-supposed) vision. In short, I think there's too much pre-supposed vision in this commentary, which doesn't do justice to the text itself. I'm a fan of the NT-series by N.T. Wright, but not of this one.
Jake5 Stars Out Of 5The Good News according to GenesisJune 25, 2014JakeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Goldingay is an exceptional scholar and a whole-hearted follower of Jesus, who thoroughly understands the cultural context in which Genesis was written in (and therefore the message that the original audience would have heard), but also brings the text to us, guiding us in how it applies afresh in our everyday life.
I highly recommend this and everyone of the other commentaries in the series.
