The comprehensive introductions from Westermann's great three-volume commentary on Genesis are now presented in a convenient form for both students and scholars. Three major parts--primeval events, the patriarchal story, and the Joseph story--include historical discussion, theological reflection, and detailed bibliographies. The result is an authoritative introduction to the composition, interpretation, and theology of the first book of the Hebrew Bible.
