Genesis Unfolded is a new and unique translation of Genesis using the actual Hebrew morphology rather than simply appealing to lexicons and previous translations. With over one thousand footnotes as well as the meaning of every single person or place's name, it is based on the idea that every letter in Hebrew has a unique meaning. When this fact is explored, the rich and subtle depths woven into the text unfold; the veil of the unknown is lifted by thorough research into the letters themselves and the hints embedded within their arrangements. Furthermore, the poetic forms of the unique Hebrew syntax are preserved rather than anglicised. Genesis Unfolded thus becomes an ideal primer for the Student of Hebrew who wishes to encounter, in English, the intricate poetic devices that Hebrew employs; not devices controlled by an outside set of grammatical rules, but what proceeds from the language and form of the text itself. Genesis Unfolded presents the Scripture in its full archetypal depth and raw beauty.
