Product description


''Iain Provan's study is set to become an essential text on this great book. With enormous scholarly range, yet communicative skill, he offers an anatomy of biblical interpretation as well as an acute analysis of Genesis itself as both narrative and theology. The result is a remarkable book, which should find a space on all serious students' shelves.'' --Gordon McConville, Professor of Old Testament Theology, University of Gloucestershire

''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, Pennsylvania

''Readers will find in Provan's treatment 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, history and close reading of the text.'' --John Walton, Professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College, Illinois

Book Description

Comprehensive, up-to-date and student-friendly introduction to Genesis: its structure, content, theological concerns, key interpretative debates and historical reception.
