Item description for Genesis: The Story We Haven't Heard by Paul Carlton Borgman...

In this book, Borgman reminds us that God seeks real relationship and friendship with self-interested humanity. Such a relationship often involves change for both parties-indeed, this is one of the key points of this book.

Publishers Description
Time after time choosing selfishness over selflessness, human beings invariably destroy themselves and wreck their societies. Only God can help, says Genesis. Yet God refuses to coerce. Instead he works with individual men and women who turn around--who stop trying to make a name for themselves and start trying to be a blessing to others. The transformation is slow and arduous. God waits. Captured in one of the world's best and best-known stories, this dynamic between God and recreated individuals leads from the universal chaos of Babel to blessing for all our world's peoples.Unfortunately, most of us overlook the dramatic story of God's work in early time because we read Scripture in disjointed pieces--and we think we've heard it all before We miss the suspenseful, sweeping narrative of interconnected events. We miss the nuances of emotion and relationship between the characters. Now in Genesis: The Story We Haven't Heard Paul Borgman fits the pieces back together--revealing God's story as if it had never been read before.

Reviews - What do customers think about Genesis: The Story We Haven't Heard?

Very thought-provoking  Oct 5, 2005
This is one of the best books I have read lately, taking over-familiar Bible stories and reading them with a close attentiveness to the actual text that yields fresh and fascinating perspectives. It's a pleasure to read a book that so often makes me go "Hmm, I hadn't thought of that, but it could make sense - must think about it some more." The book is also very readable - well-written and absorbing. Highly recommended.
The heart of the matter  Nov 14, 2002
Paul Borgman gets to the heart of the Genesis matter in Genesis: The Story We Haven't Heard. Through an absorbing analysis of the Biblical narrative, Borgman shows us that Genesis reveals truth in the way that all great literature reveals truth: through relationships. And what he keeps coming back to is that the most compelling story at the heart of Genesis is the relationship between God and His people, a story of partnership, parting, reconciliation, and--ultimately--love.
Genesis:The Story We Haven't Heard  Dec 4, 2001
Genesis: The Story We Haven't Heard by Paul Borgman, IVP, 2001.

As the story of Genesis itself, Borgman's Genesis: The Story We Haven't Heard is a marvelous blend of literary, theological and historical insights. The author encourages readers to go ahead and be bothered by the text of Genesis to their profit. Nothing worse than a complacent reader who already knows what the narrative recounts.

Borgman's study of the Genesis text is excellent. This book is brimming with insights and Genesis readers are truly in Borgman's debt for producing such a fine volume. Reading the narratives in Genesis will never be quite the same after reading, The Story We Haven't Heard.

Specialist and non-specialist readers alike will profit from this book. Written in a very accessible style and with clarity, Borgman moves the reader through the text of Genesis pointing out a diversity of new perspectives that often go missed in the larger commentaries. His major focus is on the narratives concerning Abraham and Sarah, Jacob and Esau / Leah and Rachel, and Joseph. The book comprises a select bibliography and useful subject, author, and Scripture indexes.
