About-

Early Genesis is like a table of contents for the rest of the book, a seed from which the rest of Scripture and history unfolds: so many ideas, images, and events can be traced back to it. Like the seeds that are so often our staple for life, Genesis also provides food for the soul, true wisdom, and the big picture we need to live in this world. But its message can be hindered by misunderstanding its purpose.

Making Sense of Genesis looks at what works and what doesn't work when interpreting Genesis. It's not a commentary, so it doesn't interact with all of Genesis or much that has been written about it. Rather, it observes how the ideas and images in early Genesis unfold and are fulfilled, and how they are just as true and fresh for us now as they were in the beginning.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"While much ink has been spilt on the interpretation of Genesis, Jeremy Wilson has provided a fresh and insightful approach. He not only shows why some 'literal' readings are untenable, but, more importantly, outlines the rich foundations the book of Genesis lays for the whole of the rest of Scripture and the life of faith.
--John Davies, Principal Emeritus, Christ College, Sydney

"I found this book thoughtful in its reading of Genesis and fascinating in the links it makes across the Bible. Wilson shows the fruitfulness of reading Genesis in its cultural and biblical context."
--Kirk Patston, lecturer, Sydney Missionary and Bible College; minister, Presbyterian Church of Australia
