|Series Title:||Reformation commentary on Scripture., Old Testament ;, 1.|
|Responsibility:||edited by John L. Thompson.|
Reformation-era interpreters found anchor for their teaching, preaching and hope in the promise of Christ running through these first eleven chapters, from creation to the calling of Abraham. While following the precedent of patristic and medieval commentators on Scripture, as well as Rabbinic midrash, the Reformers provide insightful and startling fresh readings of familiar passages, inviting readers to see the ancient text with new eyes. This volume collects the comments of not only the monumental thinkers like Luther, Calvin and Melancthon, but also many important figures of the time who are lesser-known today. --from publisher description.
