[ In the Beginning: A New Interpretation of Genesis By ( Author ) Oct-1997 Paperback
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
"Both humble and generous, Karen Armstrong rescues Genesis from purely literary criticism by seeing it as a collection of rather baffling teaching stories, and argues forcefully that we have to struggle for the meanings embedded in the often mysterious text, much as Jacob wrestled all night with God in the shape of an angel." (Independent)
"Superb...a jewel of a study... The entire book is written with the same level of passion and insight...Ms Armstrong has taken a familiar biblical story and made it relevant to our deepest and darkest concerns...a little masterpiece worthy of being a long-treasured companion to the ancient classic she celebrates" (Washington Post)
"Armstrong reveals much about this ostensibly familiar work" (Christopher Hirst Independent)
"Armstrong wants to restore the philosophical to the question of faith, and she does so in an approachable manner" (Lesley McDowell Herald)
The bestselling author brings her peerless powers of examination to one of the most familiar but least understood books of the Bible: the Book of Genesis.
