Genesis and Christian Theology contributes significantly to the renewed convergence of biblical studies and systematic theology -- two disciplines whose relational disconnect has adversely affected not only the academy but also the church as a whole. In this book twenty-one noted scholars consider the fascinating ancient book of Genesis in dialogue with historical and contemporary theological reflection. Their essays offer new vistas on familiar texts, reawakening past debates and challenging modern clichés.
"This rich and fresh collection of essays pivots on the daring conviction that historical-critical study and theological interpretation (informed by ongoing church tradition) can usefully engage each other in generative ways. The outcome, in various idioms, is a deep plunge into theological exploration that reaches in many contemporary directions, notably, faith and science, covenant and creation, food, poverty, work, and attentiveness to environment. Readers will inescapably be led in new directions of thought and interpretation by these provocative studies." - Walter Brueggemann
