Genesis 1–11: A New Old Translation for Readers, Scholars, and Translators
Bray, Samuel L. and John F. Hobbins

Wilmore, KY: GlossaHouse, 2017 pp. 313. $14.99

Description: This translation of Genesis 1-11 follows the Hebrew text closely and leaves in what many translations leave out: physicality, ambiguity, repetition, even puns. Bray and Hobbins also draw deeply from the long history of Jewish and Christian interpretation. Their translation and notes offer the reader wisdom and delight.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Pentateuch, Genesis, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, History of Interpretation
