Book I of this short treatise presents a straightforward ''moral and simple'' commentary on the life of the Patriarch, drawn from Genesis 12:27-25:10. Book II goes on to review the same texts to ''refer the perception to higher things, and through the history of diverse personages to explain the progression and appearance of virtue'' and foreshadowings of the new dispensation. This brief narrative provides an excellent example of the multiple senses of patristic scriptural interpretation at work. 110 pp.
