    One thought on “The Book of Genesis (The Great Courses)”

    1. A thorough examination of the Book of Genesis, a great exercise in close reading, and a fine introduction to the bible as a work of literature as well as a religious document Prof Rendsburg does not hold back his opinion of certain approaches he is particularly critical of the documentary hypothesis but his explanations are clear and fair despite his objections The lectures bog down a bit when he indulges his obsession with chronology, and his delivery is a little stiff at times He reminds me a [...]

    2. If I had my way, Dr Gary Rendsburg s course on The Book of Genesis would be mandatory for every Christian, Jew, historian, lover of language, and student of the human spirit Let s start this review by giving the course five stars.Background I had the privilege of taking two courses with Dr Rendsburg in Cornell University s Near Eastern Studies department, and they were the best two classes I took in college When this course became available through The Teaching Company, I made sure to snatch it [...]

    3. From The Great Courses series, these area an excellent set of lectures on The Book of Genesis with a lot of interesting information presented quite well I especially like how the professor would present multiple explanations for certain aspects and present which one he favors Multiple theories and explanation are presented The interpretations are pretty much from a world view of a believing Jew, but a to that is presented also fits quite well into Catholic biblical scholarship I didn t entirely [...]

    4. I have a somewhat mixed assessment to this course on CD On the one hand, Rendsburg is a top notch scholar who knows the original text and language , the traditions of interpretation, and comparative and historical contextual material extremely well He gives wonderfully detailed close readings of individual episodes in Genesis that show just how rich, nuanced, and subtle those stories from a literary storytelling perspective In particuarly, his analysis of seemingly minor differences when certain [...]

    5. I found this a very informative and well done lecture series What was most interesting was his deviation from the accepted Biblical Scholarship that tries to connect everything in the Pentateuch or Torah to the Documentary Hypothesis I am a big advocate of the JEPD Theory, but Rendsburg adeptly presents explanations and reasons as to why it should not be the only theory considered I, myself, am a believer that the likelihood of a single theory being perfectly and exactly right is highly improba [...]

    6. This is a twelve hour course on the book of Genesis taught by a Biblical Maximalist those who view archaeology and the Bible support each other for the most part However, he believes that Abraham existed about 1000 1200 BCE, the Egyptian captivity was only for three generations and the numbers of people in the Exodus was much less than found in the Bible He points out how people of that time tracked time and illustrates it with similar cultures of today He also points out how the ages of the pat [...]

    7. Fascinating literary approach to such a famous text makes you appreciate its brilliance without forcing a faith based acceptance on the listener drive time well spent
