Study Genesis with Claus Westermann

This week’s free book is the Continental Commentary on Genesis 1-11 by Claus Westermann. Westermann’s three-volume commentary on Genesis stands as one of the most exhaustive treatments of the first book of the Bible available today. The first volume introduces readers to the first 11 chapters of Genesis. For each section of Scripture, Westermann translates the text, introduces the literary form and setting, offers a detailed commentary, shows readers the purpose and gist of that section, then offers a detailed analysis of secondary literature—all with thoroughness, clarity, and fairness.
