In certain parts, I got bogged down by a lot of details, especially when Hamilton discussed the geneology sections. I also gave up on reading the footnotes, even though I read them in the first volume. Overall, this book was engaging and interesting. I enjoyed reading about the different interpretations other commentators have taken about ambiguous passages. This really made me pay attention to the details in Genesis instead of reading over familiar stories quickly, like I often do.
