In this volume, biblical scholar Clines examines key passages in Genesis and other books of the Old Testament from a reader-centered approach. He provides a history of literary criticism, tracing emphasis from author to textand then to reader, showing how the input of the reader is invaluable to interpreting Scripture. Clines focuses on several concerns as he evaluates the passages—the process of reading, the process of writing, and the social climate of the reader.
