Genesis Commentaries

| | Comments (1)

Tyler Williams reviews commentaries on Genesis. Tyler is a bit more positive about Walton that I'd want to be. I'm a bit disappointed with Walton's NIVAC in terms of the series' general strength, which is supposed to be contemporary application (and bridging the context from original meaning to contemporary application). Walton seems to have a very strained view of how much contemporary relevance Genesis has. Other than that, I think I agree with pretty much everything else Tyler says.

If you're interested in commentaries and haven't seen his Old Testament Commentary survey, you should take a look at that too. His Genesis post is basically an update to his entry on Genesis in that survey.

Update: Tyler has a followup post that adds a few more commentaries and then offers some thoughts in forthcoming commentaries on Genesis, including some information on when some of them are likely to be out.

Tyler Williams posts some highlights from biblical studies blogs from 2006. Check out my appearance during the month of June.

The 13th Biblical Studies Carnival is at Codex, covering posts from the month of December. I don't post a lot that I think is worth submitting to this carnival, and I have a very strict policy of not linking to carnivals I'm not in so as not to undermine the gratitude links I give to ones that I am in. I recommend it every month, but this time I can link to it. If you want to keep up with the Biblical Studies Carnival in general, just remember that each one appears in the first week of the month containing posts from throughout the previous month, and you can always check Tyler's main page for it for the link to the most recent one.
