Reviews - What do customers think about The Twelve Generations of the Creation!?
Sooo much more in Genesis than just the Creation! Jul 10, 2009
Dr. Edwards' book is the most interesting commentary on the Old Testament that I have ever read. You will get to know all the "players" as real people and understand OT history as never before. The names of God, such as Elohim and El Shaddai, are explained and will give you a new understanding of all the facets of God and His almighty power. I have had the good fortune of being in a Sunday School class with Dr. Edwards himself as the teacher! It has been a blessing beyond compare. For the first time in my life, I try to arrange all trips, etc. so as not to miss Sunday School. I have given the book to family members, friends, pastors, and teachers -- and I highly recommend it to all. Marcia M.
