Meredith G. Kline is famous in the Reformed community for his teaching and writings in the area of biblical and covenant theology. In the mid-1990s, just after Kline finished writing what is considered to be his magnum opus (a study of the book of Genesis called Kingdom Prologue), he wrote a brief commentary on the same biblical text. Genesis: A New Commentary was not published during his lifetime and is just now being made available to the public.
Many of Kline's former students, as well as many pastors and laypeople in the Reformed community, consider his work to have had a transformative effect on their faith and thinking. His teaching and writings (he wrote seven books and more than seventy articles) were filled with fresh, insightful interpretations.
Meredith Kline's posthumously published Genesis: A New Commentary?which distills his mature views on the book of Genesis and, indeed, on Scripture as a whole?will appeal greatly to those who already admire his work, and make his thinking accessible to a broader audience. The commentary has been edited by Kline's grandson Jonathan G. Kline, who received his PhD in Hebrew Bible from Harvard University, and contains a foreword by Michael S. Horton, the J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics at Westminster Seminary California.

Kline (Ph.D. degree in Assyriology and Egyptology, Dropsie College), an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, for over half a century,served as a professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary (in Philadelphia), Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Westminster Seminary California.
