Customer Questions & Answers for
Zondervan Genesis: A Commentary

Hebrew and Old Testament expert Bruce Waltke looks at the book of Genesis as a work of theological literature. Thus, he focuses on primary aspects of the story (narrative), including characterization, plot, theme, scene, structure, foreshadowing and irony, and balances these issues with an emphasis on the theology of Genesis which both shapes and is shaped by the narrative. He looks at the ten divine initiatives in salvation history, each delineated by a "toledot" heading ("the account of the line of...") followed by a transitional linkage. Waltke interprets the text using twelve levels of signification (sounds, syllables, words, phrases, clauses, sentences, frames/speeches, scene parts or incidents, scenes or episodes, acts or phases, sections/cycles, book/composition), and takes the best of form, source, narrative and literary criticism to offer readers one of the best looks at the theological and literary value of Genesis, the book of beginnings.

Overview of Genesis, by Bruce Waltke:
  • Theologically moderate
  • Uses the author's own translation from the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia
  • Technical (knowledge of Hebrew is necessary)
  • A verse-by-verse exposition of the theology and literature of Genesis
  • Models ways to read and interpret the narratives of Genesis
  • Reflects on how the message of Genesis can address our contemporary theological and social issues, including ecology, homosexuality, temperance, evil, prayer and obedience
  • Addresses critical interpretive issues including authenticity, dating, and authorship
  • Innovative separation of Genesis into books, acts, and scenes, which aids in the understanding of both the structure and flow of Genesis
  • Geared for all educated Christians interested in a deeper understanding of this masterful piece of theological literature
