506    Access limited to subscribing institutions. 
520    There is little doubt that in recent years the nature of 
       the Genesis narrative has sparked much debate among 
       Christians. This Counterpoints volume introduces three 
       predominant interpretive genres and their implications for
       biblical understanding. Each contributor identifies their 
       position on the genre of Genesis 1-11, addressing why it 
       is appropriate to the text, and contributes examples of 
       its application to a variety of passages. The contributors
       and views include: James K. Hoffmeier: Theological History
       Gordon J. Wenham: Proto-History Kenton L. Sparks: Ancient 
       Historiography General editor and Old Testament scholar 
       Charles Halton explains the importance of genre and 
       provides historical insight in the introduction and 
       helpful summaries of each position in the conclusion. In 
       the reader-friendly Counterpoints format, this book helps 
       readers to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of each
       view and draw informed conclusions in this much-debated 
       topic.
