Primeval Saints: Studies in the Patriarchs of Genesis
de James B. Jordan
No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
Jordan has an eye for details and pursues these details within the context of scripture and culture of the people of the scripture. It is a difficult book for me to read because his understanding of a story is sometimes quite different from what I had learned. Yet his views reinforce the orthodox view of scripture. I do wish he would have given more bibibliographical support for what he was claming. However, he does support his views with other support from scripture.

Uncommonly organic. Jordan reveals the fascinating weave of lives that bind together the heroes and villains of Genesis. Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, and others come to flesh and blood in ways that undo our common images. Jordan inverts so many of the traditional negative judgments against the patriarchs that they stand forth as heroes rather than scoundrels. Throughout, Jordan draws a picture of how Christian culture should be imagined and lived in our own day, from creativity and work to tyranny and freedom. You will never be able to read Genesis in the same boring way again. James B. Jordan, Th.M, D. Litt., is author of several books, including Creation in Six Days: A Defense of the Traditional Reading of Genesis One.

In contrast to Adam, Cain, and other characters in the early pages of Genesis, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, and Judah were great heroes of the faith and by paying careful attention to the details of their lives, we can discover much more from the Bible than we often think.
