Item Description...
An assessment of the origins of the book of Genesis. Garrett looks at the various possible sources of information that Moses drew on in putting together this account of the origins of the earth and the appearance of the history of Israel. The documentary hypothesis has always been criticised from conservative theological circles. This has tended to be in the form of outright opposition to the concept and the insistence that Moses used no other source than inspiration by the Holy Spirit. The uniqueness of Garrett's approach is that he combines conservative theology with an investigation of the possible sources of information available to Moses.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tremendously Helpful  Jun 8, 2008
As a pastor, this book was immensely helpful in my own study of the Old Testament. In my reading of OT commentaries, it has often been difficult to know the difference between baby and bath water when it comes to critical studies. I knew that Moses did not sit down and write the entire Pentateuch in exactly the form we have it now from memory, but I also knew JEDP was reaching (and more confusing than helpful when it comes to understanding the text).

Garrett exposes the traditional critical views as bankrupt and presents a reasonable hypothesis for how Genesis came to be in the form we now have it. In addition, he also presents an excellent framework for understanding the book as literature.

Garrett comes to the text from a conservative perspective and his respect for the text is evident. The first few chapters, where he critiques the traditional critical viewpoints, had me laughing out loud in places. The clear headed reasoning presented in this work is a breath of fresh air in Old Testament studies.
The death-knell of the Graf-Wellhausen hypothesis  Dec 20, 2003
This study on the origins of the book of Genesis boldly opposes prevalent critical perspectives and presents an alternative theory that is both carefully documented and comprehensive in scope, describing all aspects of the transmission, assembly and structuring of Genesis. In this book, Garrett argues for the exodus-related setting of Genesis and a Mosaic redaction of historical sources, resulting in what he calls "Urgenesis" which was slightly expanded by later redactors. In proposing this hypothesis, Garrett methodically exposes the inadequacies of the Documentary Hypothesis and its spawn throughout the book and devotes an entire section to an evaluation of the same before presenting his own theory. The outcome of the work is a convincing refutation of the critical approach to the Pentateuch (and Genesis in particular), a nuanced affirmation of the traditional understanding of Mosaic authorship and the book's antiquity, and a realistic assessment of the structure and composition of Genesis that honestly and seriously considers the appearance of varying sources throughout the book.
