Product Description

How can we faithfully read and understand the first three chapters of the Bible? Exploring implications related to divine authorship, historical background, genre and structure, chronology, and more, Vern S. Poythress offers basic interpretive principles, outlines the exegetical concerns that lead some scholars astray, and interprets Genesis 1-3 as a larger whole. Interpreting Eden emphasizes foundational interpretive and hermeneutical principles rather than attempting to be a verse-by-verse commentary.
