Excerpt from Genesis and Its Authorship: Two Dissertations In "The New Bible Commentary Critically Examined," Bishop Colenso has spoken of the following work, or rather of its author, as I take it for granted he has never read the book itself, in terms which call for a few remarks from me in reply. In the Preface of Part I. pp. viii. ix., he complains that the Bishop of Ely has briefly referred to me as having "carefully and elaborately investigated" the linguistic differences between the Elohistic and Jehovistic passages of Genesis, instead of making any such investigation for himself; and again, in p. 72, he makes the same complaint. I should have supposed that any occasion for the Bishop of Ely to enter on such an investigation himself would have depended on the insufficiency of my discussion of these differences, and that Bishop Colenso had no right to blame the Bishop of Ely for contenting himself with a reference to me, without showing that I had failed in my attempt to account for them. Instead of this, however, he absolves himself from any consideration of my discussion of the matter with this contemptuous remark: "From the specimen which we have had in (6 ii.) above of Mr. Quarry's mode of reasoning, so much approved by Bp. Browne, I am not surprised at this," namely, at the Bishop's reference to my work. Turning now to the specimen by which he justifies this contempt (6 ii.) pp. 57.58, we find the Bishop of Ely quoted as saying, in regard to the repetition of the name Elohim in i. 1 - ii. 3, "The passage is scarcely more really marked as Elohistic by the name Elohim occurring thirty-five times, than if it had occurred but once; for its having occurred once would inevitably lead to its continued and frequent recurrence," in support of which my table of alternations of the names in p. 401 of this work is cited in a note by his Lordship. To this quotation Bishop Colenso subjoins, "Ans. 'Would inevitably lead, etc'! Then let the reader turn to" - certain passages to which I purpose shortly to revert.

Excerpt from The Bible, What It Is, Vol. 1: Genesis, Its Authorship and Authenticity The reader will find frequent references made to Bellamy's New Translation of Genesis. Bellamy was a painstaking, honest man, and good Hebraist, but his desire to free the text of the Bible from the imputation of containing objectionable passages often leads him to strain for an interpretation not warranted by the Hebrew. Kalisch's Commentary - a far superior and much less partial book, is also in constant use in these pages. His volume contains one of the most admirable collections of criticisms on Genesis ever presented to the English reader. It utters far more heresy than Colenso has yet ventured to put forward against Genesis. The author does not profess to reject the Bible as a divinely inspired book, but as he admits that it is irreconcilably contradicted by science, and confesses that in more than one place its own self-opposing statements cannot be explained away, it is evident that Kalisch's views on inspiration are not of a very orthodox order. Colenso's volumes, repeatedly quoted here, are valuable as coming from a Church of England. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

This volume represents the launch of The Bible Question by Question series. Intended for Bible study groups, individual reading, or classroom use, the volumes in this series provide a methodical approach to Bible study that incorporates the practical insights of modern biblical research. The Book of Genesis: Question by Question was designed to assist individuals or groups who are planning to read the entire book of Genesis, and who want to gain a full understanding of its meaning, its authorship, and the circumstances under which it was written. This book is not intended to compete with major commentaries, but rather to guide readers who want to work with the Genesis stories right away, and who can subsequently develop an appetite for some of the wealth of fine details found in other modern reference works. Readers are encouraged to develop religious appreciations and overviews as they progress toward the end of the journey, rather than at the start. This book is divided into a series of sections based on individual stories or remarks made by the various authors and editors of Genesis. For each section an introduction provides the basic information needed to read that biblical story in line with current scholarship, but much comment and analysis is held in reserve until the readers have moved on to try their hand at the questions. The answers at the end of the book should be consulted by readers after they have invested time in reflection and in writing down their own responses. In each section the conclusions that follow the question and answer process are meant to be practical rather than exhaustive, since the goal is to move on to the next section with the same plan--to get hands on the verses of the next story. Taken together, this book provides an excellent introduction to Genesis, and constitutes the ideal launch of what is destined to be a widely popular series for Bible study.
