US Kirkus Review » This is the first volume in a series aimed at an intelligent, relevant, and inspiring exposition of the Bible of Israel for sophisticated modern readers. The author develops the interpretative position for this volume in terms that avoid pious sentimentality, on the one hand, and a sterilized critical scholasticism, on the other. His treatment of the Genesis accounts of the beginnings of Israel is familiar with the parallel circumstances and influential factors existing in the ancient world in which Israel took shape as a people. At the same time, he makes clear the selective and adaptive character of the way in which Israel used and recreated these ancient resources so that they take on an almost entirely new significance. The result is a work of high scholarship, at the same time within the understanding of the serious lay reader; and valuable equally to those of the Jewish and Christian communities. (Kirkus Reviews)
