Item description for Commentary-Genesis (NIV Application Commentary) by John H. Walton...

Noted scholar John Walton follows the three-tiered NIV Application Commentary format (Original Meaning, Bridging Contexts, and Contemporary Significance) to reveal how this first book of the Bible applies to us today.

Publishers Description
The Bible begins and ends with a revelation of God that gives redemption its basis. From the first verse of Genesis, the book of origins, we encounter a God of personality, character, purpose, and activity. Only in the light of what he shows us of himself as the Creator of our world and the Interactor with human history does the salvation story assume its proper context. Genesis sets things in order: God first, then us. In the words of the general editor s preface, Especially after the Tower of Babel it became evident that people had forgotten who God was. They needed reminding. The moves God made were essentially concerned with putting himself in front of the world s peoples. Today, perhaps more than ever, we need God to put himself in front of us---to remind us who he is, and that he is. With characteristic creativity and uncommon depth, John H. Walton demonstrates the timeless relevance of Genesis. Revealing the links between Genesis and our own times, Dr. Walton shows how this mysterious, often baffling book filled with obscure peoples and practices reveals truth to guide our twenty-first-century lives. Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable---but the job is only half done The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today. This series promises to become an indispensable tool for every pastor and teacher who seeks to make the Bible's timeless message speak to this generation. Billy Graham The NIV Application Commentary is an outstanding resource for pastors and anyone else who is serious about developing doers of the Word. Rick Warren, Saddleback Valley Community Church"

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Genesis (NIV Application Commentary)?

There is many nuggets of gold in this commentary  May 5, 2006
While not everyone will agree with the author's opinion on the first chapters of Genesis I found a great deal of useful information and some very sound theological discussion. The author challenges us, the reader, to think theological and for this very reason the book is well worth the price. Just the authors knowledge of ancient culture makes this book worth buying and reading. We do not need to agree with every page of every book we read yet we can still learn a great deal from those whom we disagree with. I used this book in putting together a bible study and really loved its bridging context and modern day application, the author is to be commended for his insight and ability to bring this ancient text into our modern world.
Unbelievable  Apr 3, 2006
Don't waste your money! The author allegorizes the text to say that Genesis (at least the so called "prehistory") is no more than ancient mythology. Its amazing to me a Christian scholar can claim that the bible is anything other than the LITERAL word of God. If you take the scripture seriously, don't waste your time or money.
Depth and quality...outstanding book!  Dec 27, 2003
I didn't know exactly what to expect when I began reading this commentary, but it quickly became clear to me that this book was different than any commentary I had read before. Not only was it solid in research and background information, but its ability to apply the truths of the Old Testament to my life today was amazing. This book is written in such a way that can benefit the beginner and the scholar. It is easy to understand, as well as deep and moving in its insights. Not only did it increase my knowledge, but more importantly, it was a powerful tool for increasing my intimacy with Christ. I highly recommend this book.
