Genesis Book Description :

Working from the conviction that Genesis can be read as a coherent whole, this commentary foregrounds the sophistication of Hebrew narrative art, in particular its depiction of plot and character, and the interpretative possibilities raised by its intertextuality. Apparently simple and independent episodes emerge as complex and interconnected, constantly challenging readers to readjust their assessments of characters and expectations of plot development. Approaching the text predominantly from the perspective of a 'first-time reader', this commentary underscores the narrative's surprises, ironies and innovations....

  • Pages :
  • ISBN 10 : 0814650406


Genesis Book Description :

The central thesis underlying this study of Genesis is that the God who is revealed as a character in Genesis is always a savior. In Genesis, David Cotter, OSB, helps readers discern a structure in the book whereby the least and the weakest are the object of God's saving help. Genesis begins with an introduction to the methodology that is used throughout the book. The introductory essay deals with the theory of Hebrew narrative and the challenges posed to biblical exegesis by contemporary literary theory. The theme of the commentary itself is that the God who is revealed as a character in Genesis is always a savior. This is true in the Stories About Beginnings (Genesis 1-11) and the Stories About the Troubled Family Chosen for Blessing (Genesis 12-50...

Studies in the Book of Genesis Book Description :

Depuis plus de 20 ans, le Pentateuque en general et la Genese en particulier font l'objet d'un vaste debat parmi les specialistes de la Bible. Les traditions qui constituent ce livre ont certainement une longue histoire que les historiens s'efforcent de retrouver. Aujourd'hui, cependant, les exegetes etudient principalement le processus de redaction entame sans doute lors de l'Exil a Babylone et qui a conduit au livre tel que nous le connaissons. D'autres s'attachent a la forme finale de la Genese pour l'etudier comme un des chefs d'oeuvre de la litterature israelite ancienne. Les articles presentes dans ce livre reprennent ces questions en vue de nourrir le debat et de faire progresser notre connaissance du premier livre de la Bible hebraique. Le pr...
