While both of the volumes on Genesis are beneficial, the one before us today is the second volume containing Genesis 12-50. This covers from the life of Abraham through the life of Joseph.

While both of the volumes on Genesis are beneficial, the one before us today is the second volume containing Genesis 12-50. While most entries in the series can be praised for expositing in some depth various periscopes, I found this volume to be severally lacking in that department. The author Joyce Baldwin does an admirable job in exegeting the passages, yet it is still lacking.

She treats Genesis as a historical document, discussing the idea of history in the introduction. After this discussion Baldwin goes on to discuss each verse from a theological and practical point of view. This treatment is good for teachers or lay people

The message of Genesis 12 - 50. From Abraham to Joseph. A companion to the stories of ordinary people who were the 'founding fathers' of Jewish-Christian faith - Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. Joyce Gertrude Baldwin. Country of Publication.

Abraham -- called out of Ur of the Chaldeans to go to Canaan, there to found a great nation, a blessing to all peoples. Isaac -- his son, taken to be sacrificed by his father, until God provided a substitue. Jacob -- Isaac's son, the schemer who cheated his older brother of his birthright but whose thigh (and heart) was broken as he wrestled all night with God's messenger. Joseph -- the dreamer sold into Egypt by his brothers, who meant it for evil while God meant it for good. These are the patriarchs whose stories are told in Genesis 12-50. Why have these accounts been preserved? What importance do they have in the development of Israel's understanding of God? What message from them does God have for us today? Joyce Baldwin skillfully weaves her answers to these questions, bringing the history of an ancient people to bear on our lives.
