Outstanding Commentary Apr 13, 2006
This is the best single volume commentary that I have seen to date on the book of Genesis. John Phillips offers simple, clear Biblical wisdom and guidance and moves you into the passages and stories of the text. He brings Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to life and lifts up the sinfulness of sin and the truly amazing grace of God in Jesus Christ.
The expository outlines alone would justify purchasing the book, but the richness and clarity with which he brings out the gospel truth is almost matchless.
I would recommend this book to any student of the Scriptures. Both laypeople and clergy will find it lucid and engaging.
Review by a pastor and educator Feb 28, 2003
This book is full of historical and factual material that is very helpful. The outlines are extra good and useable. The spritual insight is very challenging and preachable. The best commentary I have read on Genisus.
An extremely traditional analysis of Genesis Sep 24, 1999
The author examines Genesis from a strict fundamentalist/literalist/"scientific creationism" point of view. Typical quotes from the book are: "The other books of the Pentateuch, Moses wrote out of his experience, but not Genesis. Genesis he learned at his mother's knee.""The basic command for all living things is that each reproduce 'after its kind'... It is the rock upon which the whole theory of evolution perishes.""One great factor in precipitating the Flood was the intercourse between 'the sons of God' and the daughters of men that resulted in a demon progeny of extraordinary influence.""Noah was fruitful... Three sons. That does not look like very much fruit, but from those three sons every man, woman, and child on the planet has descended." The book's principal weakness is that the author continually draws conclusions from scripture that the text does not substantiate. For example, about Joseph's brother Gad, a man of whom the Bible tells us only his name, Phillips writes as follows: "There was something about Gad that savored of the gang. He was the bully type, the kind who would pick a fight when it was safe, when numbers were on his side... Gad, the coward."
