Overview

In the introduction to this volume, George Coats discusses narrative in general and the principal Old Testament narratives in particular. He then sets the book of Genesis in its larger Old Testament context, analyzing its major sections and subsections, and uses the succeeding chapters to treat each of the major sections individually.

Praise for the Print Edition

A most welcome book. It adds several dimensions to the interpretation of [Genesis]. Because of the comprehensiveness of its treatment of Genesis and the balanced judgment of Professor Coats, the book functions, at times, as a test of the validity of its own major method—form criticism in Old Testament study.

—Matitiahu Tsevat, Hebrew Union College
