The Legends Of Genesis is the English translation of the introduction to Gunkel's commentary, 'Genesis'. The author uses critical analysis on the text of Genesis to determine the various genres of the biblical legends and their significance to the authors. He also attempts to uncover buried clues as to the sources of the text; finally offering his hypothesis to explain how the various sources came to be combined, and how the text later came to be attributed to Moses.

This book has 110 pages in the PDF version. This translation by W. H. Carruth was originally published in 1901.

Production notes: This ebook of The Legends of Genesis was published by Global Grey in 2019.
