Genesis 1-11: The Beginning of Covenant History (New Covenant Commentary Series)

Genesis 1-11: The Beginning of Covenant History (New Covenant Commentary Series)

William J Dumbrell

$24.99

Paperback

Back Cover:

Many Christians, including many theologians, in effect begin their reading of the Bible with Abraham and end their reading with Paul. But, in my view, this de facto contraction of the Biblical text misses the pre-understanding that is vital to appreciate covenant history from Abraham to Paul...

The paradox of revelation is that man was created to enter into and enjoy present and accessible divine fellowship and harmony with God, then man forfeited the enjoyment of the immediacy of the divine presence, but then the unending seventh day provides the context in which the ideal life of the garden is still to take place and to become perpetual human experience...

The seventh day experience is still possible in a fallen world. Faith in God's purposes can still bring us into an Eden-type space in which we may experience continually the personal presence of God...

Creation will reach its appointed goal through God's direction which is registered by interlocking, progressive divine covenants...

Without the biblical eschatology created by Genesis 1-11, the plans for a sin-free future for the saved race vanish...

- from William Dumbrell's commentary on Genesis 1-11.

A stimulating and enlightening companion on the journey of reading this foundational section of the scriptures.

- from the foreword by Dr Peter Jensen.
