Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A new translation and literary interpretation of the first 11 chapters of the Book of Genesis. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: This book invites readers to reconsider what they think they know about the opening chapters of the Book of Genesis, from the creation of the world, through the Garden of Eden, Cain and Abel, the Flood, and the Tower of Babel, to the introduction of Abraham. Edwin M. Good offers a new translation of and literary commentary on these chapters, approaching the material as an ancient Hebrew book. Rather than analyzing the chapters in light of any specific religious position, he is interested in what the stories say and how they work as stories, indications in them of their origins as orally performed and transmitted, and how they do and do not connect with one another. Everyone, from those intimately familiar with Genesis to those who have never read it before, will find something new in Genesis 1-11: Tales of the Earliest World.
L'autore: Edwin M. Good is Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies and of Classics at Stanford University. He has written extensively on the Hebrew Bible as well as the history of the piano.
