Birthpangs and Blessings - A Commentary on the Book of Genesis
Publisher: Sacristy Press
Recent trends in Old Testament studies have radically changed the way we look at the first book of the Bible. This commentary takes account of these developments—acknowledging that traditional source-critical theories need to be re-evaluated, seeking to explore the book holistically, and taking account of its qualities as a ‘story’. Clare Amos draws upon her extensive knowledge of the modern Middle East, its peoples, its religions and its problems, to provide new insights into some of the challenges which Genesis offers for faith and life today. Birthpangs and Blessings offers new insights into the spirituality of the Bible, the voyage of mutual discovery between God and humanity, a recurrent theme of this important biblical book.
