Reviews - What do customers think about Genesis 12-36 (Continental Commentary)?
A very helpful commentary for Genesis studies. 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 sceond of three, concerns itself with the stories from Abraham through Jacob. 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.
