Whereas many recent commentaries have divided Genesis into multiple layers of tradition, the author of this commentary observes that the scholarly arguments in favour of the literary and theological unity of the Genesis text are growing and impressive. Hence, he stresses the main theme running throughout most of the book: God's gracious promise of blessing and reconciliation in the face of sin and evil. The introduction includes sections on the book's title, structure, composition, theology, problems in interpretation, canonicity and Hebrew text; an outline of the whole book and bibliography are included. A unique feature of this book is the author's emphasis on the reading of Genesis by the New Testament community. Following his commentary on each chapter or unit of Genesis, he discusses where and how the New Testament appropriated material from that section and incorporated it into the message of the New Covenant."@en ;
