From the Inside Flap
"Rusty Reno's Genesis invites readers into a rich conversation that includes the rest of the Bible, the early church fathers, and Rashi, all for the sake of showing how Genesis beckons us forward to Christ and so continues to speak to the church today. Lively and provocative, this is a commentary that never ducks difficult interpretative questions. Those who read this stimulating commentary will be drawn back to the text of Genesis to ask whether they have read it as attentively as they should have."--Nathan MacDonald, reader in Old Testament, University of St. Andrews, Scotland; leader of the Sofja-Kovaleskaja Research Group, University of Göttingen, Germany
Praise for previous volumes in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible
"[Leviticus] is full of stimulating insights from which biblical scholars will benefit. . . . [It] makes a valuable contribution to the Christian study of Leviticus. . . . Those who work hard will profit from the often-stimulating associations [Ephraim Radner] finds between Leviticus and other parts of the Bible. Moreover, his commentary provides the first thorough synthesis of premodern Christian and Jewish interpretation of Leviticus."--Leigh Trevaskis, Review of Biblical Literature
"The value of the commentary is its bringing Matthew into unity with the rest of the biblical witness to the Gospel as that witness has been expounded by the church. The soundness of the commentary lies in [Stanley] Hauerwas's own theology having been honed by the church. . . . This Brazos series can play an important role in reminding one of the community's indispensable role in understanding the Bible, and Hauerwas's contribution to the series is a formidable one indeed!"--Gene L. Davenport, Catholic Biblical Quarterly
From the Back Cover
Praise for Genesis in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible
"Rusty Reno has done what Augustine could not--write a theologically satisfying single-volume commentary on the whole of Genesis. Of course, Augustine didn't have the benefit of reading Genesis through Rashi, Aquinas, Barth, Ochs, and even modern historical critics. This is the right way to read scripture--as a multigenerational exegetical workshop among Christians, Jews, and interested others, not looking for more or less reliable historical information or literary pre-history but for the sort of wisdom that instills love and finally holiness."--Jason Byassee, executive director of leadership education, Duke Divinity School
"For Reno, the overriding concern of Genesis corresponds to the goal of exegesis: God gives us his promise so that we may move forward ever more deeply into the beginning, into the mystery of Christ. The result is a passionately written commentary that dissolves the divide between exegesis and theology as well as the gap between exposition and application. Those wondering how we might possibly follow in the footsteps of our premodern interpreters of scripture can do no better than to read Reno's commentary."--Hans Boersma, J. I. Packer Professor of Theology, Regent College

all over again. Filled with theological and philosophical insights this commentary easily
surpasses other efforts and is possibly the best commentary on Genesis since Augustine.
The Brazos commentary series is a gold mine for preacher, professor or
lay person and is welcome change to drudgery of modern commentaries that have
been consumed with the historical critical project and other hermeneutic projects that
proceed on questionable assumptions and produce little fruit.
A tremendous commentary that is a bargain at the twice the price.
