Genesis - Gerhard Von Rad

S. C. M. Press, 1985, Paperback.
Condition: Good. A pleasant enough reading copy. Gently faded at the spine. Previous owners inscription to ffep along with a small address sticker obscuring a prior inscription.

7th impression, revised. From the introduction: “First published in German in parts, from 1949 onwards, and translated into English in 1961, this has already been recognized as one of the classic commentaries on Old Testament books and went through four impressions in its first edition. The revision is particularly extensive in the first part of the book, not merely bringing up-to- date points of technical detail (for this is hardly one of the commentary’s main concerns), but expressing the result of twenty years’ further thought on one of the greatest books in the world’s literature.”

Size: 8¾" x 5¾". In the Old Testament Library series. 440 pages.
