IN How to Read Genesis, Tremper Longman III aims at helping readers interpret the first book of the Bible. In doing this, he concentrates on discovering the intentions of the human author of Genesis, while reminding his readers that the process is a spiritual exercise as well as an intellectual one (InterVarsity Press, £9.99 (£9); 978-1-84227-385-2).

J. W. Rogerson’s An Introduction to the Bible was first published in 1999. This revised edition takes account of developments since then. It explores how the Bible was put together, how biblical writers wrote, and how the Bible is studied and used now (Equinox, £14.99 (£13.50); 978-1-84553-039-6).

For the popular series The People’s Bible Commentary, Hugh Page has written the volume on Exodus (BRF, £8.99 (£8.10); 978-1-84101-066-3).
