History of the Exegesis and Reception of Genesis: Seminar

Well, I’m as registered as I can be for my HDS class this fall (it’s limited enrollment, and apparently I won’t know for sure if I got in until the week class starts, though the prof thought it was likely I’d get a place). I just ordered my text books off of Amazon. They basically consist of a bunch of commentaries, ancient to new, on Genesis. What could be better!? The Genesis section of my library just more than doubled with the addition of the following, and I’m thrilled about it:

  • Genesis: Interpretation by Walter Brueggemann
  • Homilies on Genesis and Exodus by Origen (Author), Ronald E. Heine (Translator)
  • Augustine: On Christian Doctrine by D. W. Robertson
  • Saint Augustine on Genesis: Two Books on Genesis Against the Manichees and on the Literal Interpretation of Genesis : An Unfinished Book by Saint, Bishop of Hippo Augustine (Author), Roland J. Teske (Translator)
  • On Genesis by Bede (Author), Calvin B. Kendall (Translator)
  • Calvin’s Bible Commentaries: Genesis, Parts I and II: by John Calvin
  • Ramban Commentary: Genesis by Charles B. Chavel (Author), Narhmanides (Author)

The only book I couldn’t find was the following:

  • St. Ephrem the Syrian: Selected Prose Works, translated by Joseph Amar and Edward Mathews.

It appears to be out of print, and I can’t even find used. If anyone knows where I might get my hands on a copy let me know! I’ve tried several of the major used book stores online, but I could be missing something!
