It’s a new year, and there’s never been a better time to dive into Scripture. This month’s top product, the Continental Commentary Series, provides you with in-depth commentary over some of the most difficult books of Scripture, including several multivolume works. And in the Logos format, these 19 volumes are available to you wherever you are.
This critical series is respected for its French and German scholarship, made accessible through English translation. It even includes Claus Westermann’s three-volume work on Genesis. First published in 1974, this remarkable set addresses many of issues still wrestled with today.
Here’s an excerpt in which Westermann succinctly identifies the unique composition of Genesis 1:
Gen 1 contains a fusion of poetry and prose that is unique in the Old Testament. This is to be explained from the pre-history of Gen 1, especially from the union of what have been called the command-account and the action-account. While the latter is simply report or narrative, the former takes on something of a poetic form because of the constantly recurring phrases. The sentence that concludes each day of creation divides the whole as it were into strophes, and the individual sentences of the account of creation by the word have a definite rhythmic stamp.
The rest of the series similarly reflects a precision and focus to draw attention to important textual details. For example, each volume includes historical and cultural considerations, with attention to textual tradition, secondary literature, and lengthy commentary.
