Overview

Herman Gunkel’s controversial book on Genesis, published in 1901, is still widely read and commented on today. Beginning with an elaborate introduction on the nature of legends and what constitutes a legend, Gunkel then sets forth to identify the stories in Genesis that fit those parameters. It is his belief that the origination of these stories cannot be traced back to written documents because they were passed on in an oral tradition from preliterate societies. A challenging and polarizing book, it nevertheless presents fresh insight into the book of Genesis.

The Legends of Genesis is essential for students, scholars, pastors, historians, and teachers of the Bible who want to go more in depth in the study of Genesis. With Logos Bible Software, this collection is completely searchable, with passages of scripture appearing on mouse-over, as well as being linked to Greek and Hebrew texts and English translations in your library.
