About this title

Synopsis:

The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret Scripture for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. In this addition to the well-received series, 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.

From the Back Cover:

The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret scripture creedally for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Genesis, like each commentary 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.

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, Vancouver School of Theology

"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, Regent College
