DESCRIPTION
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.

REVIEWS
Walter Brueggemann
-- Columbia Theological Seminary
"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."
Interpretation
"Twenty-one noted scholars consider the ancient book of Genesis — one of the richest resources for Jewish and Christian theological reflection — in dialogue with historical and contemporary theological reflection. Their essays offer new vistas on familiar texts, reawakening past debates and challenging modern clichés."
Review & Expositor
"This volume is an excellent resource for clergy who desire a deeper appreciation of biblical/theological concepts."
Theology
"The breadth and quality of this volume make it more than a reference book for specialists. . . . It will be a rare reader who will not benefit in one way or other from this collection."
Review of Biblical Literature
"A hearty meal that will indulge the most refined exegetical and theological taste buds. . . . It described the diverse ways in which Genesis relates to Christian theology, helps break down the dividing wall between specializations, and open new interpretive and theological horizons on familiar texts. . . . For those interested in Genesis and theological interpretation of scripture, the work will offer a satisfying meal."
Trinity Journal
"This book offers a helpful way forward in the goal of theological Christian interpretation of the Scriptures and fruitful dialogue between specialties and is an excellent resource for pastors, students, scholars, and laity."
