    A commentary that are not only exegetical but theological as well.

    In this addition to the well-received Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible, esteemed theologian R. R. Reno offers a theological exegesis of Genesis. This commentary, like each in the series, is designed to serve the church—providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups—and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of 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 instils 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

    "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
