“Goldingay’s immense contribution to our understanding of the Old Testament over the past few decades cannot be overesti- mated. Now we have his detailed study of Genesis to guide us in our reading of this foundational book.” —TREMPER LONGMAN III, Westmont College (emeritus) “Goldingay’s critically informed, resourceful, comprehensive, and relevance-driven volume stands out remarkably among others in the field. This is a commendable commentary for the church and academy today, for whoever wishes to hear the retelling of the Genesis narrative afresh.” —BARBARA M. LEUNG LAI, Tyndale University and Seminary
