Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Genesis?
Insightful lay commentary with meat for scholars Oct 21, 2004
Fast moving, well-written commentary that blends Dr. Youngblood's insight of the Hebrew language with archeological and cultural knowledge of the Patriarchal period. The book demonstrates that not only is the Book of Genesis true, it is also beautiful.
A few highpoints: (1) Jesus in John 1:51 refers to Gen 28:12 and the Tower of Babel from Gen 11. (2) The humor of Gen 31:34. (3) Poignant description of the Cain's progression of sin. (4)The Flood truly did cover the lands known by the author of Genesis, but did not cover the entire globe.
Thoroughly God-honoring, possibly some controversial sections, a great book if you seek to understand more than the "Sunday-School answer".
