Item description for The Message of Genesis 12-50: From Abraham to Joseph (Bible Speaks Today) by Joyce Baldwin & J. A. Motyer ...

Overview
Joyce Baldwin approaches Genesis in this commentary from an Evangelical position. She treats Genesis as a historical document, discussing the idea of history in the introduction. After this discussion Baldwin goes on to discuss each verse from a theological and practical point of view. This commentary focuses on chapters 12-50 of Genesis in order to analyze the Hebrew Patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. This treatment is good for teachers or lay people. Joyce Baldwin, Old Testament scholar and former principal of Trinity College, Bristol, has written numerous books and commentaries on the Old Testament.

Publishers Description
Abraham -- called out of Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan, there to found a great nation, a blessing to all peoples. Isaac -- his son, taken to be sacrificed by his father, until God provided a substitue. Jacob -- Isaac's son, the schemer who cheated his older brother of his birthright but whose thigh (and heart) was broken as he wrestled all night with God's messenger. Joseph -- the dreamer sold into Egypt by his brothers, who meant it for evil while God meant it for good. These are the patriarchs whose stories are told in Genesis 12-50. Why have these accounts been preserved? What importance do they have in the development of Israel's understanding of God? What message from them does God have for us today? Joyce Baldwin skillfully weaves her answers to these questions, bringing the history of an ancient people to bear on our lives.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message of Genesis 12-50: From Abraham to Joseph (Bible Speaks Today)?

A Bit Disappointing  Apr 19, 2005
I've read some of the other commentaries in this series and they generally make good devotional commentaries, but this one was disappointing. The author does not provide much in the way of insight or application beyond what you can read in the text of Genesis 12-50 itself.
