Discovering Genesis

  • Author: Iain Provan
  • Series: Discovering Biblical Texts (DBT)
  • Publisher: SPCK
  • Publication Date: 2015
  • Pages: 224

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Iain Provan here offers readers a compact, up-to-date, and student-friendly introduction to the book of Genesis, focusing on its structure, content, theological concerns, key interpretive debates, and historical reception.

This introduction to the interpretation of Genesis encourages in-depth study of the text, and genuine grappling with the theological and historical questions raised, by providing a critical assessment of key interpreters and interpretative debates. It draws on a range of methodological approaches (author-, text- and reader-centered), as complementary rather than mutually exclusive ways of understanding the text. It also reflects the growing scholarly attention to the reception history of biblical texts, increasingly viewed as a vital aspect of interpretation rather than an optional extra.

Iain Provan has made a significant contribution to our ongoing interpretation of Genesis. Readers will find this a fresh and suggestive entry into the book of Genesis.

—Walter Brueggemann, professor emeritus, Columbia Theological Seminary

A welcome and masterful presentation of how Genesis has been interpreted through the ages. Be prepared to have your mind stimulated by expanded views of hermeneutics and a close reading of the text.

—John Walton, professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College

Provan offers his readers a sweeping, succinct, accessible, and sometimes iconoclastic assessment of the history of interpretation of Genesis, a section-by-section rehearsal of its major interpretive challenges, and a deeper understanding of Genesis as theology.

—Peter Enns, professor of biblical studies, Eastern University

Iain Provan (PhD, Cambridge University) is Marshall Sheppard Professor of Biblical Studies at Regent College. An ordained minister of the Church of Scotland, he is the author of commentaries on Lamentations and 1 and 2 Kings.

Discovering Matthew

  • Author: Ian Boxall
  • Series: Discovering Biblical Texts (DBT)
  • Publisher: SPCK
  • Publication Date: 2014
  • Pages: 216

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In this introduction to the story that Matthew tells, Ian Boxall deftly guides readers through the sources, origins, themes, and main characters of the first Gospel. The book’s short chapters enable coverage of a wide range of topics, presenting the issues and scholarly debates surrounding the Gospel of Matthew in an accessible yet nuanced manner.

Discovering Matthew offers a guide to key issues and questions raised by the text to enable readers to come to their own conclusions. Encouraging in-depth study of the text and genuine grappling with pertinent theological and historical questions, this book is an ideal introduction to the interpretation of Matthew.

Boxall has packed a lot of information into his book with a tight but limpid writing style, and a remarkable evenhandedness characterizes his discussion of disputed points. It would be hard to recommend, or even to imagine, a better contemporary introduction to the Gospel according to Matthew.

—Robert H. Gundry, scholar-in-residence, Westmont College

No serious student of Matthew’s Gospel should be without a copy.

—Paula Gooder, theologian-in-residence, Bible Society, UK

Outstanding. . . . Full of thoughtful judgments, enabling even the experienced reader to see the text in quite a different way.

—Nicholas King, visiting fellow, University of Oxford

Ian Boxall is associate professor of New Testament at the Catholic University of America, Washington, DC.
