Format: Paperback
I was delighted to read by James McKeown's commentary on Genesis. I think his theological approach is original and important since it offers a much more interesting alternative than the old stale JPED approach, which in my opinion is too pedantic to ever be spiritually uplifting.

It would be nice if more biblical scholars made the effort to stress the theological dimensions of the text in their commentaries.

This is an excellent commentary that focuses on practical implications of the text. While not heavy on examining linguistic structure and providing a comprehensive analysis on every phrase, this commentary still manages to communicate difficult aspects of the text while remaining focused on literary and theological issues as well. This commentary reads very easily and is exceptionally well-written.

I am teaching a Bible class on Genesis right now and I searched and searched for a suitable commentary. What I found was a bit of a gap in Genesis commentaries right now. Anchor, Word, and NICOT have not published an up-to-date Genesis commentary in several decades, while other series such as Concordia, Apollos, and Hermeneia have not yet published a Genesis commentary.

So I started asking my professors and doing some searching on my own. Eventually I stumbled across this commentary, read some very positive reviews (especially one by the Society of Biblical Literature), liked the inexpensive price, and picked it up.

It has been extremely helpful and incredibly beneficial so far. McKeown writes well and tackles all of the major issues in Genesis. While avoiding super technical issues, he does not gloss over the language, which I appreciate very much. When McKeown discusses the Hebrew, the Hebrew word or phrase is written out and also includes a transliteration. He draws the most important theological points out of a passage and gives great insights. The first half of the book is a clear and succinct, paragraph by paragraph commentary. The second half of the book is an immensely interesting series of essays and excursuses on important topics in Genesis and in Genesis studies, such as the relation of modern science to the Genesis narrative.

Until a comprehensive, technical commentary comes out in the Concordia, Apollos, or Hermeneia series, this one in the Two Horizons series will do very nicely when I must preach or teach from Genesis. It is a delight.
