The abridged version of Westermann's classic three-volume work on Genesis. This work presents a magisterial commentary in a condensed and more poluar form. Included are a fresh translation of Genesis, the philological reasoning behind the translation, an examination of the historical background of the original text, a survey of all that has been written about Genesis (together with full references) and a consideration of the problems and questions the text of Genesis raises for today. Claus Westermann is Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at the University of Heidelberg.
"'This... "practical commentary" on Genesis offers in masterly fashion the fruits of intensive original research... in a focused and compact form, for the benefit of anyone seriously involved in the study of the first book of the Bible.' -- Simon J.de Vries"
