Item Description...
The director of Hebrew studies and professor of Old Testament interpretation at Asbury Theological Seminary takes a fresh look at this book of origins---of the universe, of humanity, and of the nation of Israel. Is fully conversant with the latest rhetorical methods; all important Hebrew concepts and terms are carefully explained. 475 pages, softcover. Cambridge University.

Publishers Description
This commentary is an innovative interpretation of one of the most profound texts of world literature: the book of Genesis. The first book of the Bible has been studied, debated, and expounded as much as any text in history, yet because it addresses the weightiest questions of life and faith, it continues to demand our attention. The author of this new commentary combines older critical approaches with the latest rhetorical methodologies to yield fresh interpretations accessible to scholars, clergy, teachers, seminarians, and interested laypeople. It explains important concepts and terms as expressed in the Hebrew original so that both people who know Hebrew and those who do not will be able to follow the discussion. Closer Look sections examine Genesis in the context of cultures of the Ancient Near East. Bridging the Horizons sections enable the reader to see the enduring relevance of the book in the twenty-first century."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great for Reading Cover to Cover Rather Than Consulting on Particular Verses  Feb 25, 2009
This is a very learned and interesting book. Bill Arnold was my Hebrew professor 15 years ago at Ashland Seminary, and I was looking forward to this book. Dr. Arnold believes that Genesis should be read as proto-history and as Israel's national epic. Generally speaking, the commentary has more exegesis and reflection on chapters 1-22, thinner comments on chapters 23-36 (summing up the Jacob-Laban narrative in one section), and a fuller discussion of the Joseph Novel (Genesis 37-50).

He makes some shrewd insights based on the Hebrew text. He notes that Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit because they wanted to become shrewd, but instead, they became aware that they were nude (shrewd and nude are very similar words in Hebrew). Arnold also mentions that the shorter and shorter lifespans leading up to Abraham could be because of the consequences of sin.

There is a full discussion of Abraham's life. He notes that Lot based his decision on choosing the land east of the Jordan based on what he saw, but that Abraham based his future on what God wanted him to see.

Arnold believes in something like the JEDP theory of Pentateuchal composition, but he does his level best to interpret the text as we have it. He does show that the repetitions in Genesis 6-9 are strong evidence for a multitextual tradition behind the narrative.

He also believes that Genesis 37-50 were composed independently of the rest of Genesis (though we see many of the same themes), and that this section could be the finest narrative in the Old Testament.

I think that this is a good, fast reading book. You should read it to get a feel for the ebbs and flows of Genesis. I thoroughly enjoyed it in this way. But it is not the best source for sermon preparation because many individual verses are not commented on, and it is often hard to find exegetical information on a given verse. Read Waltke or Sailhamer or Westermann or Mathews for sermon prep. Read this for personal enrichment and understanding of the whole.
