Most of us are vitally interested in answers to the big questions of life. Where did we come from? Why are we here? What is the nature of man? How did we get here? What is our future? We consider any literature that deals with these questions relevant and timely. Preeminent among literature about the big questions of life is the book of Genesis. Genesis is known as the book of beginnings, the book of firsts. It tells of the beginning of the world by creation, the beginning of mankind, the beginning of sin in the race, the beginning of salvation. Dr. Vos examines those and other beginnings in the book of Genesis. He explores the stories in this book, offering insightful and helpful comments and explanations that will aid you in comprehending the message and scope of Genesis. As a book of beginnings, Genesis is the seed plot and springboard for the concepts and history of the rest of the Old Testament. Through this commentary you will have a basis for understanding history as it unfolds in the other Bible books.
