Meredith G. Kline is famous in the Reformed community for his teaching and writings in the area of biblical and covenant theology. In the mid-1990s, just after Kline finished writing what is considered to be his magnum opus (a study of the book of Genesis called Kingdom Prologue), he wrote a brief commentary on the same biblical text. Genesis: A New Commentary was not published during his lifetime and is just now being made available to the public.
Many of Kline s former students, as well as many pastors and laypeople in the Reformed community, consider his work to have had a transformative effect on their faith and thinking. His teaching and writings (he wrote seven books and more than seventy articles) were filled with fresh, insightful interpretations.
Meredith Kline s posthumously published Genesis: A New Commentary which distills his mature views on the book of Genesis and, indeed, on Scripture as a whole will appeal greatly to those who already admire his work, and make his thinking accessible to a broader audience. The commentary has been edited by Kline s grandson Jonathan G. Kline, who received his PhD in Hebrew Bible from Harvard University, and contains a foreword by Michael S. Horton, the J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics at Westminster Seminary California.
