The Genesis Creation Account and Its Reverberations in the Old Testament

Edited by Gerald A. Klingbeil
Add to Cart

How does the rest of the Bible relate to Genesis 1 and 2? Do the various biblical authors portray creation theologies that align or diverge? In this volume, ten scholars—each addressing a different section, genre, or topic from the Old Testament—grapple seriously with this question. Collectively, they find that the weight of the textual data of the Old Testament clearly portrays an overarching understanding and theology of creation that permeates every biblical genre and book. These findings should inform the thinking of every honest Christian, whether layperson, theologian, or scientist. At its core, creation theology is all about Who God is, who we are, what our destiny is, and how God chooses to save a world that is in direct rebellion to its Creator.

"This remarkable collection of studies on Genesis 1 and 2 takes one into the world when the chapters were first written and leads the reader through the Scriptural reflections on this most important of teaching among the poets, prophets, and wisdom writers of the Old Testament."

Richard S. Hess
Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages
Denver Theological Seminary

"The concept of origins is foundational for any worldview, and this volume usefully explores this concept from the perspective of biblical theology. Covering aspects of semantics, history of interpretation, exegesis, and theology, it shows the various entry points necessary to more fully appreciate biblical creation. Exploration of creation throughout the Old Testament canon is a welcome core of the book. The focus firmly remains the Old Testament and its world, so even discussions of evolution concentrate on ancient Near Eastern views rather than current scientific discussion."

David W. Baker
Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages
Ashland Theological Seminary

"The subject is timely, given scientific advances, and a culture which challenges biblical morality. The biblical theology approach, beginning with Genesis and essays examining the Psalms, Wisdom literature (with interesting results), and the Prophets is commendable. Here is solid academic work appropriate for colleges, but also helpful to the educated church constituency."
