Reading Genesis by Marilynne Robinson

Staff Pick

The rewards of reading Marilynne Robinson’s close analysis of the first book of the Bible lie not only in her insight and evocative prose but also in how it illuminates Robinson’s other literary works, particularly the Gilead sequence. If, like me, you've spent many pleasurable hours with Robinson's fiction, Reading Genesis acts as an exegesis of her thematic and spiritual obsessions. This is the work of a mind that meditates on the role spirituality plays in today's world and reclaims the Bible from those who want to twist its words for more nefarious and selfish ends.
