Meredith G Kline (1922-2007) was a scholar of the ancient Near East, and one of the most influential and original Reformed theologians (covenant theology) of the last half century. This posthumously published commentary sets out his brilliant interpretation of Genesis - a must-read for serious students of Scripture!
<p>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 <i>Kingdom Prologue</i>), he wrote a
brief commentary on the same biblical text. <i>Genesis: A New</i>
Commentary was not published during his lifetime and is just
now being made available to the public.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>Meredith Kline's posthumously published <i>Genesis: A New
Commentary</i>-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
Dr. Meredith G. 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. He is the author of highly original books God, Heaven, and Har Magedon, Glory In Our Midst: A Biblical-Theological Reading of Zechariah's Night Visions, Images of the Spirit, The Structure of Biblical Authority and Kingdom Prologue: Genesis Foundations for a Covenantal Worldview-Editorial Review.
