The Book of Genesis (New International Commentary on the Old Testament Series...

From the Back Cover

The second of Victor P. Hamilton''s two-volume study of Genesis for the NICOT series, this prodigious and scholarly work provides linguistic, literary, and theological commentary on Genesis 18-50. Beginning with Abraham''s reception of the three visitors and his intercession before Yahweh on behalf of Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen. 18) and continuing through the end of the Joseph story (Gen. 50), the overarching theme of Hamilton''s commentary is Yahweh''s faithfulness to his promised word and his covenant commitments to those whom he has chosen to receive that promised word. Special features of this commentary include its serious attention to important matters of biblical translation from the Hebrew language into English, copious footnotes that direct readers to further and more extensive sources of information, and frequent references to the New Testament writers'' reading of Genesis. Hamilton''s work will greatly benefit scholars, seminarians, and pastors who seek solid exegesis of the Bible''s foundational book.

I loved this work. The writing style and of course the depth of the research had made this a most valuable addition to my library. Thank you Hamiliton! This is a terrific work.

This is a really good two volume commentary on Genesis. I like it better than Gordon Wenham''s two volume work for several reasons: 1) It is easier to read. 2) There are many points where Hamilton focus on applying the text to the New Testament and to the practical Christian life, 3) you don''t have to have a knowledge of hebrew to access this mammoth work. So if you''re doing a Bible study on Genesis or if you''re preaching through it, then this is the top of the line.

Hamilton is very good - clear

I already had the first volume of this, so this one was due! Hamilton is very good - clear; exploring the language without becoming too technical. Highly recommended

This is Volume 2 of the writers commentary on Genesis and some years earlier I had bought Vol. 1, so I wanted to have this second Vol. I would recommend any of the commentaries in this series - New International Commentaries of the Old and New Testaments. But, of course, I would first recommend reading ther Bible for oneself!

Hamilton helps us notice details in Hebrew text of the book of Genesis, repeatism, synchronization, anagram, etc. The Genesis writer used such literature techniques that we have to be aware on his craftsmanship, and that Hamilton benefits us deeply with his interpretation through this book. The weight of this thick book is a inescapable consequence of this great book, but by using the Kindle version, the problem can be cleared now!
