Unparalleled in its importance in declaring God's will, Genesis is the foundation of God's Word. Beginning with Abram's call through Joseph's death, Mathews describes Genesis as the ordered, cohesive, and consistent work of one author, Moses. His thorough knowledge of the Hebrew text in its original linguistic and cultural context, add to the exposition as he examines Genesis' its literary and theological contours as well as its place within the Pentateuch and the larger biblical canon. He also examines early Jewish and Christian interpretations, and considers the narrative nature of the text.

Review 1 for Genesis 11-50: New American Commentary [NAC]
Date:February 8, 2010
An invaluable commentary on the book of Genesis. The author's knowledge of the original language and familiarity with early Jewish and Christian culture adds substantially to the explanation of verses contained in this book. Excellent for the pastor or teacher unfamiliar with the Hebrew language as well as for personal study. Would highly recommend this addition to any Christian's library.
