Publishers Description Genesis--the Bible's account of human origins and the harbinger of human destiny--is a book teeming with critical problems. Who wrote it? When? Does the account of creation square with modern science? What about Adam and Eve? Derek Kidner not only provides a running exegetical commentary, but lucidly handles the tough issues that Genesis raises. His clear prose and theological insight will expand readers' understanding of God's character and of human nature and destiny. The Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these volumes retain their original text now retypeset in a larger format. As always, they continue to aim at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Reviews - What do customers think about Genesis (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries)?
A great study guild May 31, 2008
This book was a great study guild, I do feel he left out some more important information on the creation and the fall of man, however; he backs up everything with the word of God and additional scriptures to help the average reader follow along and to expand their research.
Something added, may not be for you. Jan 31, 2006
Kidner uses some of modern thought to explain creation and the flood events, not using the Bible for the basis. Readers should be careful not to take all of his comments as the "Gospel".
