Genesis: A Commentary (Waltke) / August 01, 2001
For more information, see this release announcement.
This landmark commentary marshals the vast experience and brilliant insights of one of today’s most revered Old Testament scholars. To those familiar with the work of Bruce K. Waltke, the significance and value of Genesis will be instantly apparent. Others who are unfamiliar with Waltke have only to read the first few chapters to understand why he has earned the reputation of a scholar’s scholar, and why this masterful volume stands like a monolith among Old Testament commentaries. Exploring the first book of the Bible as ‘theological literature,’ Waltke illuminates its meanings and methods for the pastor, scholar, teacher, student, and Bible-lover.
Genesis strikes an unusual balance by emphasizing the theology of the Scripture text while also paying particular attention to the flow and development of the plot and literary techniques–inclusion, irony, chiasm, and concentric patterning–that shape the message of the ‘book of beginnings’.
- Models the way to read and interpret the narratives of the book of Genesis
- Provides helpful exegetical notes that address key issues and debates surrounding the text
- Includes theological reflections on how the message addresses our contemporary theological and social issues, such as ecology, homosexuality, temperance, evil, prayer, and obedience
- Addresses critical interpretive issues, such as authenticity, date, and authorship
- Innovative separation of Genesis into books, acts, and scenes, which aids in the understanding of both the structure and flow of Genesis
- Geared for all educated Christians interested in a deeper understanding of this masterful piece of theological literature
For all the author’s formidable intellect and meticulous research, Genesis is amazingly accessible. This is no mere study tool. Lucidly and eloquently written, it is a work of the heart that helps us not only to understand deeply God’s Word in its context, but also to consider how it applies to us today.
