Rogerson's Genesis 1-11 falls into two main parts. The first outlines recent approaches to Genesis 1-11 by mainstream scholars who have addressed environmental, liberation, feminist and literary issues. The second section addresses the text from the point of view of standard literary questions such as source division, literary criticism, myth and ancient Near Eastern parallels. The Guide thus aims to combine larger, hermeneutical questions with a detailed study of the context of Genesis 1-11.
-Publisher

John Rogerson traces the interpretation of Genesis 1-11 through to its present engagement with contemporary issues, before going on to examine the hermeneutical debate currently centred on the text, and to discuss it from the more familiar perspective of the historical-critical method, with particular attention to translation, source-critical and inter-literary questions.
