Studies in the Patriarchs of Genesis
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.
