— Columbia Theological Seminary
“Iain Provan has made a significant contribution to our ongoing interpretation of Genesis. Readers will find this a fresh and suggestive entry into the book of Genesis.”
— Wheaton College
“A welcome and masterful presentation of how Genesis has been interpreted through the ages. Be prepared to have your mind stimulated by expanded views of hermeneutics and a close reading of the text.”
— Eastern University
“Provan offers his readers a sweeping, succinct, accessible, and sometimes iconoclastic assessment of the history of interpretation of Genesis, a section-by-section rehearsal of its major interpretive challenges, and a deeper understanding of Genesis as theology.”
— University of Gloucestershire
“Iain Provan’s study is set to become an essential text on the great book of Genesis. With enormous scholarly range and communicative skill, he offers an anatomy of biblical interpretation as well as an acute analysis of Genesis itself as both narrative and theology. The result is a remarkable book, which should find a space on all serious students’ shelves.”
— Durham University
“An accessible contemporary reading of Genesis that interacts with past readings and displays both historical and hermeneutical sophistication.”
— Wheaton College
“This work brings to life the first book of the Hebrew Bible. Provan’s reviews of the treatment of the book’s motifs in the history of interpretation, including the arts, are especially helpful.”
