Thanks to biblical scholars like John Walton and cultural shapers like Darren Aronofsky, there seems to have been a resurgent interest in the opening chapters of the Bible.
But where many books address Genesis 1 or 2 and 3, the broader "primeval history" chapters are often left untreated. The new book Genesis: History, Fiction, or Neither? bridges this gap in engagement by addressing Genesis 1–11 in its entirety. Because as the book's general editor Charles Halton argues:
You can't really discuss Genesis 1 or Genesis 2–3 without looking at it in the entire narrative that goes from Genesis 1–11.
Genesis assembles the various discussions about Genesis, origins, and the beginning of the Bible into the bigger Biblical storyline using three distinct voices and three important pericope case studies.
Listen to Halton explain the issues surrounding of Genesis 1–11 and how his edited volume distinctively addresses them in a way that will help you read Genesis and all the Old Testament.
