Leupold's classic commentary on Genesis. Two volumes in one. One of my favorite commentaries on Genesis is the tried, but useful, commentary by Leupold.

A long, robust commentary on the book of Genesis in the conservative/Evangelical tradition.

Leupold thoroughly analyzes the text and seeks to defend it against the claims of "higher criticism." He provides grammatical and lexical analysis when appropriate and often provides citation for Gesenius' grammar and other lexical, syntactical, and grammatical resources of the day. Homiletical suggestions are also provided per chapter.

There is much that is praiseworthy in Leupold's comments. There are some detractions, however-- he at times overreacts to higher criticism, and his conviction that the book's purpose is to set forth history, point to Jesus, and to delineate right from wrong is a bit narrow and does not take into account the many explanations for place names and such things for which the book would serve in antiquity.

A commentary worth considering when studying Genesis, but should not be taken as the last word on Genesis. ( )
