The Book of Genesis ( The Smart Guide to the Bible) Nov 7, 2009
This has been a very helpful tool for me as I am involved in a men's Bible study about Genesis. It provides great additional insight from many well known Christian leaders and makes the scriptural text easlier to understand.
Very good overview of Genesis Dec 29, 2008
I have studied Genesis a lot in the past, and was looking for a good book for a small group study. Genesis is the basis for almost everything for Christians and Jews alike, and there is so much information it is daunting to try to teach/study it. However, this is an excellent overview book. Personally I am a Creationist, and this book is not at odds with that. But it also is not pushy about what you believe about creation, and presents several theories (ie, day-age, gap theory, etc) and gives quotes from several well-know authors/speakers. Same is true for flood: Was it world-wide or local? It gives both points of view.
If you are looking for a book that revises what the book of Genesis says, this is NOT it. There are plenty of those out there. The book holds true to the traditional Biblical meaning of Genesis, giving us the basis for religion, marriage, family, government, etc, while leaving some room for interpretation on controversial points. Highly recommended.
Great for Bible Study. Jul 24, 2008
Buy the series for your study groups. Genesis was very easy to read and full of insight as with the other books in this series. Great for Bible study.
