Reviews - What do customers think about Genesis 1-11: A Continental Commentary?

Well done, Not the best for me  Oct 10, 2005
I purchased this commentary as well as four others for an in-depth study of Genesis. Although this commentary is well written and valuable, I am returning it after reading about 170 pages because:

1. It is superceded by newer commentaries (such as the Word commentary by Wenham) making it mostly superfluous if you have these others.

2. There is too much focus in this text on the documentary hypothesis. Although this is perhaps important in a commentary on Genesis, Westermann has made this the central focus of his commentary. Many sections are the theology of P is, J said this because, the reason E did this was... I prefer the way other newer commentaries have treated documentary hypothesis issues as part of a whole, not the focus.

Altogether it is a great commentary, i would have given it four stars if not for the other more up-to-date commentaries that offer a more balanced view of what Westermann offers plus newer material.

BTW the other commentaries I have are: Word by Wenham, Interpretations by Brueggemann, New Internation Commentary by Hamilton, and New American Commentary by Mathews. I will post reviews as I finish each volume.
No.1 In Biblical Interpertation  Feb 23, 2003
This book and the continuing ones are the best comentery on the book of genesis - A MUST to everyone who wants to understand it.
A great commentary on the early Genesis stories.  Oct 4, 2000
Westermann's Genesis commentary, long held to be a classic, is a valuable addition to any library concerned with serious study of Genesis. This volume, the first of three, concerns itself with the stories from creation through Noah and the Tower of Babel, traditionally called the "pre-history". Westermann carefully examines each pericope from a scholarly perspective with notes, commentary and comments. The bibliographic notes are also very helpful. His awareness of the vast amount of scholarship in this area is carefully processed to provide all but the beginning Bible students with a most valuable resource to which they will return again and again.
