Continental Commentary Series: Genesis 37–50 (CC)


This third volume of Westermann’s masterful commentary on Genesis offers a stimulating treatment of one of the most poignant and unified of the narratives in Genesis—the Joseph story. English-speaking readers now have access to Westermann’s thorough introduction to Genesis 37–50 as a whole, as well as treatments of the individual passages familiar from the first two volumes.

This work opens up dimensions of meaning which are not only relevant for theology but for human existence in the modern world.

—Bernhard Anderson, Old Testament Scholar
