DESCRIPTION

Here you will find a steady exposition of the text of Genesis that attempts to bring together historical-critical research, and theological understanding and application. Primary for Brueggemann is the concept of "calling" in the book of Genesis. This is Brueggemann's "center" in interpreting the book and it is distilled from the belief that "God calls the worlds into being" and "God calls us into the church". 

This is all done for the purpose of considering the text of Genesis as addressed to the community of faith. The community does not seek to do what critical exegesis does, but the community does depend on critical exegesis in formulating a faithful theology, and response to the text. Thus, Brueggemann does not ignore scholarship, but seeks to appropriate it for a specific end, that of edifying the church. 

Anyone who desires to enrich their understanding of faith at a very profound level, without scholarly jargon will find this series and especially Brueggeman's work here useful. Yet, Brueggemann does not leave the scholarly behind, he uses it to create an interpretation and understanding of this compelling, and often mistreated book. Genesis is ideal for pastors, educated laity, and undergraduate courses on the Pentateuch and/or Genesis.
