In this new addition to the Reformation Commentary on Scripture, we read along as the Reformers return to the ancient stories of the six days of creation, the tragic fall of God s creature and the catastrophe of the flood and apply them to the tumultuous age of the Reformation. Here is a primary source for biblical renewal in the church today.

"Wonderful! A marvelous introduction to the ways in which the three major Western religious traditions are both like, and unlike one another. Scholars will be familiar with many of the texts, while others will be both new and of enormous interest. . . . The truth is Genesis 1-3 and its subsequent chapters are so rich, so complex, and so problematic on the subject of gender, that just reading the biblical text is sufficient to start engaged, even heated, discussion. As the field of Religious Studies becomes more specialized, and the focus of scholarly works increasingly narrow, anthologies such as Genesis and Gender remind us that the interpretation and impact of religious texts can be astonishingly broad, extending well beyond the communities they initially addressed. Genesis and Gender enables us to read, or reread, Genesis 1-3 through a variety of religious lenses that underscore both the interconnectedness and uniqueness of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Easily accessible to scholars, it also has great potential for use as a college or university text." Ellen Umansky, Fairfield University NP No other text has affected women in the western world as much as the story of Eve and Adam. The story has engendered countless commentaries, has been used to argue the "fallen" nature of humankind or to explain or exploit relations between the sexes, and has played a key role in justifying the ways of God toward man and woman. This remarkable anthology surveys more than 2,000 years of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim commentary on the biblical story that continues to raise fundamental questions about what it means to be a man or to be a woman.NP The selections range widely from early postbiblical interpretations in the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha to three commentaries written especially for this volume. The editors have included early rabbinic texts, interpretations from the New Testament, and commentaries from the Church Fathers. There are excerpts from the Qur'an, from medieval Jewish commentaries, from Thomas Aquinas and other later figures, as well as representative texts of the Protestant Reformation. One section focuses on nineteenth-century America and the antebellum debate on slavery, the struggle for women's equality, and new religious movements such as Shakerism and Christian Science. Twentieth century texts from all three traditions conclude the volume. A special appendix focuses on race and Genesis 1-3 at the turn of the new millennium.NP The tale told through these texts is a remarkable one of the hold the story of Eve and Adam has had on the western imagination. The editors note that though the biblical account has been invoked throughout history to justify all manner of oppression, there is an equally rich tradition of egalitarian interpretation, well-represented in this book. Far from a collection of lifeless, historical documents, these texts are lively representatives of a debate that continues to animate men and women to this day.

The Church, Marriage, and the Family is a collection of studies mostly written from the point of view of Catholic teaching dealing primarily with marriage and the family, as the title indicates; but the book also ranges into such related topics as feminism, homosexuality, and even pornography. Prepared in connection with the 2004 International Year of the Family, it constituted the program for the 27th annual convention of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars (FCS). The contributions include those of some scholars with national and even international reputations such as the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family?s theologian William E. May (with a contribution entitled ?The Good of Spouses and Marriage As a Vocation to Holiness?); historian Allan Carlson of the Howard Center and the Family Research Council (?The Future of Marriage and the Family in the United States: Some History Lessons?); and social scientist Nicholas Eberstadt of the American Enterprise Institute (?The Global War against Little Girls?). Among the more than two dozen contributions are: ?John Paul II and the Complementarity of Man and Woman,? by John F. Crosby of the Franciscan University of Steubenville, ?Catholic Marriage and Feminism? by Sister Mary Prudence Allen, r.s.m., of Denver?s St. John Vianney Theological Seminary, and ?Pro-Family Prospects in Congress,? from Rep. Christopher H. Smith (R-N.J.).Finally, the book contains a section entitled ?In Memoriam: Rev. Msgr. George A. Kelly, 1916?2004.? Msgr. Kelly was the founder of the Fellowship of Catholic Scholars. Included here are a number of tributes to him written by friends and collaborators of his in the work of the Fellowship. They include: Gerard V. Bradley, James Hitchcock, William E. May, Ralph McInerny, Patrick G.D. Riley, Rev. Msgr. William B. Smith, Kenneth D. Whitehead, and Rev. Msgr. Michael J. Wrenn.
