In his clear and readable style, Walter Brueggemann presents Genesis as a single book set within the context of the whole of biblical revelation. He sees his task as bringing the text close to the faith and ministry of the Church. He interprets Genesis as a proclamation of God's decisive dealing with creation rather than as history of myth. Brueggemann's impressive perspective illuminates the study of the first book of the Bible.

    This is one of the best commentaries on Genesis! Brueggemann is in my opinion one of the best Hebrew Scriptures scholars. His prophetic and even poetic imagination reveals interesting finds in the creation stories of Genesis. Don't let the publication date or his religious affiliation push you away from reading/buying this book. Solid scholarship and surprising insights!

    Since he is an ordained pastor with the UCC and holds very liberal views of Scripture I would not even consider buying any of his works.
