I did enjoy the journey through Genesis that Goldingay takes us on in this Commentary. Whilst it is a scholarly work, it is not overly so, and is very readable. I appreciated the Author’s translations in that he kept the names as in the text, but used what the reader is more used to in the Commentary. This is not a commentary for Hebrew Scholars, but the Author does make good use of the underlying Hebrew where needed for the approach he has taken. There are a few references to the old Source Criticism approach to Genesis, but the Author does adopt a more Canonical approach overall. The Author is writing primarily to a Christian audience and the occasional NT and Christological references are welcome. Whilst I do not always agree with the Author’s conclusions or assumptions, I did appreciate his passion for the material and he gave me much to think about - which has already provide useful for a recent Bible Study. Highly recommended for Pastors who want a bit more of a scholarly look at Genesis but not too much; and for those serious about Bible Study.
