Readings in Genesis

At CHBC, we are getting ready to embark on a lengthy study through the book of Genesis. Some of you have been wondering what I have been reading to prepare for this sermon series. So, here is a list of books and articles to date. As always, I will be buying more books and reading more articles. However, this is what I have been reading thus far. (Note: You can see that I read a wide variety of authors from a wide variety of theological backgrounds. This does not mean that I am endorsing any one view; only that it benefits both myself and others to be widely read.)
