poopAzAge: Over 65Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5May 30, 2012poopAzAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3about 85% of this commentary I agree with - but feel that there are portions that dishonor Jesus and are more an opinion rather than facts that can be substantiated by other scripture - so I absorb and rejoice in that which can be supported by other scripture but I hesitated to recommend it because of the opinion related material - quite frankly I have chosen not to reference it unless it is on a subject that other commentaries do not give an adequate explanation supported by Biblical scripture. It has been a good reference when it uses other scripture to support a topic and that is good
Minista JOrlando, FloridaAge: 35-44Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Product was NOT helpful...April 23, 2012Minista JOrlando, FloridaAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2It appears that the writer thought by using COMPLEX wording that it would be beneficial. However it is NOT, it would have been more effective if he would have spoke as he was trying to teach children. To me I am more effective in my delivery when I try and stay on the level of those that I speakingto rather than try and speak above them.

Laid out well and thorough in its content, Brueggemann is explicit about his purpose and stays on point to equip for teaching and preaching.
Leigh Hebbard5 Stars Out Of 5December 27, 2009Leigh HebbardPerhaps the best commentary on Genesis in print. Period! The first reviewer clearly did not grasp what Brueggemann was saying.
Jeremy1 Stars Out Of 5April 10, 2008JeremyIF you are evangelical you will not find this book helpful at all. He states that he will not treat Genesis as history or myth and then proceeds to treat it as myth.
