Genesis: History, Fiction, Or Neither? Three Views on the Bible’s Earliest Chapters

  • Editors: Stanley N. Gundry and Charles Halton
  • Series: Counterpoints
  • Publisher: Zondervan
  • Publication Date: 2015
  • Pages: 288

In recent years, the Genesis narrative has sparked much debate among Christians. This Zondervan Counterpoints volume introduces three predominant interpretive genres and their implications for biblical understanding. Each contributor identifies his position on the genre of Genesis 1-11, addressing why it is appropriate to the text, and contributes examples of its application to a variety of passages. James K. Hoffmeier argues that Genesis 1–11 is theological history, Gordon J. Wenham says it is proto-history, and Kenton L. Sparks describes the chapters as ancient historiography. Old Testament scholar Charles Halton explains the importance of genre and provides historical insight in the introduction and helpful summaries of each position in the conclusion. This book helps readers reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of each view and draw informed conclusions in this much-debated topic.

Stanley N. Gundry (b. 1937) is adjunct professor of historical theology at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. He is the general editor of the Zondervan Counterpoints Collection.

The study of Paul and his letters can be exciting, challenging, and life-changing—but only if it is done well. Pauline experts Bruce W. Longenecker and Todd D. Still bring decades of expertise to Thinking through Paul, challenging readers to delve deeply into the apostle’s writings and wrestle with his richly-layered and dynamic theological discourse.

Longenecker and Still examine Paul’s life before and after his encounter with the risen Christ. They look at each of Paul’s letters individually, then synthesize the Pauline writings to highlight the main strands of Paul’s theologizing—all while keeping the particular context of first-century Christianity at the forefront. Filled with images, maps, charts, and questions for further study and discussion, Thinking through Paul is both engaging and easy-to-follow, making it the perfect choice for classrooms, Bible studies, or personal study.
