The book of Genesis contains foundational material for Jewish and Christian theology, both historic and contemporary, and is almost certainly the most appealed-to book in the Old Testament in contemporary culture. R. W. L. Moberly's The Theology of the Book of Genesis examines the actual use made of Genesis in current debates, not only in academic but also in popular contexts. Traditional issues such as creation and fall stand alongside more recent issues such as religious violence and Christian Zionism. Moberly's concern - elucidated through a combination of close readings and discussions of hermeneutical principle - is to uncover what constitutes good understanding and use of Genesis, through a consideration of its intrinsic meaning as an ancient text (in both Hebrew and Greek versions) in dialogue with its reception and appropriation both past and present. Moberly seeks to enable responsible theological awareness and use of the ancient text today, highlighting Genesis' enduring significance.

Review:

'This little book is one of the most perceptive and probing discussions of the theological issues found in the book of Genesis. Combining great erudition with a highly accessible and engaging style and an eye for the deeper meaning, Walter Moberly is not afraid to challenge a consensus, to dig beneath a cliché, or to relate the ancient text to perennial existential issues in a way that few scholars do. Reading this volume cannot but deepen your understanding of the Bible.' Jon D. Levenson, Albert A. List Professor of Jewish Studies, Harvard Divinity School

'Readers will find that one of the most useful aspects of the book is the way in which it engages with writers who have used Genesis negatively rather than positively. It is a demonstration of why Genesis continues to be important for Jewish and Christian faith and practice.' Church Times
