Each volume in this series breaks down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. The contributors tackle the task of interpretation using the full range of critical methodologies and practices, yet they do so as people of faith who hold the text in the highest regard. They present a careful section-by-section exposition of the biblical books with key terms and phrases highlighted and all Hebrew and Greek transliterated. Notes at the close of each chapter provide additional textual and technical comments for those who want to dig deeper. A bibliography as well as Scripture and subject indexes are also included. Pastors, students, and Bible teachers will find in this series a commitment to accessibility without sacrificing serious scholarship. - Publisher "Professor Hartley, who has already given to the evangelical community stimulating commentaries on Leviticus and Job, has succeeded in extending that contribution by this commentary on Genesis. It is a commentary that is long enough to avoid being superficial, and one that is short enough to make it readable without missing the forest for the trees. Those wishing further discussion than is found in the discussion of the text will find such in the Additional Notes at the end of each section, as well as in the various excursuses scattered throughout the volume. Pastors and Christian Education teachers would be well-advised to make this volume apart of their library."--Victor P. Hamilton, professor of religion, Asbury College - Publisher The Understanding the Bible Commentary Series helps any reader navigate the strange and sometimes intimidating literary terrain of the Bible. These accessible volumes break down the barriers between the ancient and modern worlds so that the power and meaning of the biblical texts become transparent to contemporary readers. The contributors tackle the task of interpretation using the full range of critical methodologies and practices, yet they do so as people of faith who hold the text in the highest regard. Pastors, teachers, and lay people alike will cherish the easily understandable truth found in this commentary series. - Publisher
