Reviews - What do customers think about Genesis - A Commentary (Old Testament Library)?

Classic commentary  Aug 7, 2007
This is a classic commentary by one the true giants of modern biblical/theological thought. Utilizes both literary and form criticism to provide a commentary that is both historical AND theological. von Rad treats Genesis as one vast cohesive unit in the far larger Old Testament witness. He examines all 50 chapters line by line, often word by word. Profound scholarship and ease of style are combined. This book is relatively easy to comprehend thanks to this style. Still, this is rigorous, exacting biblical study, not for the casual bible student!
 
Excellent source for Genesis insight  Aug 19, 2002
This book is not for people who want to hear how inerrant the Old Testament is. Rather it is a fine example of what true Theological examination looks like. Gerhard von Rad takes Genesis and dissects it into fine details. Rarely does von Rad overlook a single detail. Taking into account language, history, and literary device, von Rad deals with Genesis in a way that will open up the stories into a new light, revealing pictures you've never even noticed before. Theist and atheist alike will find this commentary very insightful and useful in their study of Genesis.
 
This book is an excellent resource for pastors.  Jul 5, 1999
This book is an excellent resource for pastors. It is a commentary after the tradition of german higher criticism. I am an orthodox reformed pastor who does not submit to the presuppositions of higher criticism. However, using such a commentary allows me to gain insight into language and cultural issues of the text that might not otherwise come to my attention. Pastors and lay people without training in the origional biblical languages and intricacies of higher criticism should take great caution in utilizing a resource such as Genesis: A Commentary. Others with proper training will appreciate and benefit from Von Rad's excellent work.
