I'm looking for exegetical resources particularly for Genesis 22. I'd love to hear your recommendations, suggestions or ideas. Thanks

Though not directly exegetical resources, the most insightful readings of Genesis 22 with which I am familiar are:

-Shalom Spiegel's The Last Trial
-Erich Auerbach's "Odysseus' Scar" in Mimesis (online at: http://www.clt.astate.edu/wnarey/odysseus'_scar.htm )
- Soren Kirkegaard's Fear and Trembling (online at: http://www.religion-online.org/cgi-bin/relsearchd.dll/showbook?item_id=2068 )

Helpful Commentaries on Genesis include:
Gordon Wenham, Word Biblical Commentaries (he'll supply a bibliography for that chapter also)
Victor Hamilton, New International Commentary on the Old Testament
Waltke (published by Zondervan)
Leupold (I have a used copy published by Baker)
Kidner, Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries

Margaret May I suggest that we learn Hebrew text from the Hebrews!

The Art Scroll Series by Mesorah Publications is an excellent place to start. This will give you a Hebrew perspective on the text as well as some exegetical insight and commentary.

I use it for foundational studies, and then build from there.

ISBN: 0-89906-362-4 two book series.
