Thomas L. Brodie...Beck uses three main kinds of arguments: literary theory, literary practice, and theology (the theology of discipleship)....Beck is on to something. From the opening chapters of Genesis the use of names is significant, and this study constitutes a partial uncovering of another instance of the enigmatic use of names. Beck may have misnamed the data—as Columbus misnamed the new continent—but there is some real discovery. The challenge now for research is to go back again and see whether the nature of this new continent can be clarified.
