"Rusty Reno has done what Augustine could not--write a theologically satisfying single-volume commentary on the whole of Genesis. Of course, Augustine didn''t have the benefit of reading Genesis through Rashi, Aquinas, Barth, Ochs, and even modern historical critics. This is the right way to read scripture--as a multigenerational exegetical workshop among Christians, Jews, and interested others, not looking for more or less reliable historical information or literary pre-history but for the sort of wisdom that instills love and finally holiness."--Jason Byassee, executive director of leadership education, Duke Divinity School"For Reno, the overriding concern of Genesis corresponds to the goal of exegesis: God gives us his promise so that we may move forward ever more deeply into the beginning, into the mystery of Christ. The result is a passionately written commentary that dissolves the divide between exegesis and theology as well as the gap between exposition and application. Those wondering how we might possibly follow in the footsteps of our premodern interpreters of scripture can do no better than to read Reno''s commentary."--Hans Boersma, J. I. Packer Professor of Theology, Regent College"Rusty Reno''s Genesis invites readers into a rich conversation that includes the rest of the Bible, the early church fathers, and Rashi, all for the sake of showing how Genesis beckons us forward to Christ and so continues to speak to the church today. Lively and provocative, this is a commentary that never ducks difficult interpretative questions. Those who read this stimulating commentary will be drawn back to the text of Genesis to ask whether they have read it as attentively as they should have."--Nathan MacDonald, reader in Old Testament, University of St. Andrews, Scotland; leader of the Sofja-Kovaleskaja Research Group, University of Gttingen, GermanyPraise for the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible:"What a splendid idea! Many preachers have been longing for more commentaries that are not only exegetical but theological in the best sense: arising out of the conviction that God, through his Word, still speaks in our time. For those of us who take our copies of Martin Luther''s Galatians and Karl Barth''s Romans from the shelves on a regular basis, this new series in that tradition promises renewed vigor for preaching, and therefore for the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church in our time."--Fleming Rutledge, author of The Bible and The New York Times and The Seven Last Words from the Cross"This new series places the accent on ''theological'' and reflects current interpretive ferment marked by growing resistance to the historical-critical project. It may be that scripture interpretation is too important to be left to the exegetes, and so a return to the theologians. We will wait with great anticipation for this new series, at least aware that the outcomes of interpretation are largely determined by the questions asked. It is never too late to ask better questions; with a focus on the theological tradition, this series holds the promise of asking interpretive questions that are deeply grounded in the primal claims of faith. The rich promise of the series is indicated by the stature and erudition of the commentators. Brazos has enormous promises to keep with this project, and we wait with eagerness for its appearing!"--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary"The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible makes a most welcome contribution to the church, the academic world, and the general public at large. By enlisting a wide range of Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox theologians who differ on much, but who agree on the truth of the Nicene Creed, the series also represents ecumenical activity of the very best kind. It is always a daunting challenge to expound the church''s sacred book both simply and deeply, but this impressive line-up of authors is very well situated for the attempt."--Mark A. Noll, University of Not

Very Informative
5 stars By Steven, Nov 17 2017
This commentary series engages scripture with a post-liberal view of theology. The commentary has a lot of sources on the historical context, but the commentary is very much like that of before the enlightenment and shows a great appreciation for the sacredness of scripture and respect for the Lord himself. In this particular commentary, Dr. Reno has a vary good explanation of the interpretation of the first two chapters of Genesis along with understandings of contemporary science, and shows the compatibility of both. The commentary itself opens the book in a grand narrative not seen much in modern times. highly valuable commentary from a must have series.
