J. Gerald Janzen approaches Genesis with the "conviction that the final form of the text is greater than the mere sum of its sources, and that the theological vision which it presents is greater and more profound -- more ripe or mature -- than can be gained simply from studies of historical events and social situations out of which the text arose." This commentary on Genesis constitutes a profound theological work.
