"The book of Genesis is a lively read featuring familiar biblical tales such as the creation of the world, Adam and Eve, and the forbidden fruit, Noah and the flood, Abraham and Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, the Tower of Babel, and Sodom and Gomorrah. While readers may know the facts of these stories, Goldingay's work will instill in them a deeper understanding of their spiritual and theological significance. True to the For Everyone series' goal, Goldingay writes in a thoroughly accessible and engaging style with chapter titles such as 'Friday Lunchtime,' 'Bigamy, Music, Technology, Murder,' 'Babylon becomes Babble-on,' 'Stuff Happens,' and 'Two Guys Who Need Their Heads Banged Together.'"Goldingay will be familiar to many from his three-volume commentary on the Psalms published by Baker and his three-volume Old Testament Theology published by IVP. The Genesis volumes will be paperback with 208 pages and sell for $14.95.
John Goldingay is David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament at Fuller Theological Seminary.
